Teaching Kids Math Through Computer Programming

  • Why are we teaching people math?
  • What’s the point of teaching people math?
  • Why are we teaching them math in general?
  • Why is it such an important part of education as a sort of compulsory subject?

From rockets to stock markets, many of humanity’s most thrilling creations are powered by math. So why do kids lose interest in it? The part of math we teach — calculation by hand — isn’t just tedious, it’s mostly irrelevant to real mathematics and the real world.

In this video, Conrad Wolfram suggests  to teach kids math through computer programming . And seeks critical reform to be done in computer-based math. He is looking forward from “knowledge economy” to “computational knowledge economy,” where high-level math is integral to what everyone does in the way that knowledge currently is.
