Robot Algebra project

The Robot Algebra project is one component of a much larger STEM Curriculum Continuum (STEM-C2) project that is being developed in a partnership between Carnegie Mellon (CM), the University of Pittsburgh’s Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC), and a consortium of industry, government, foundation and education partners committed to improve both the quality and quantity of students pursuing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers.

Robotics is being used as an organizer to teach STEM competency in thousands of schools; initial research has shown that although there are many opportunities to teach STEM, many teaching moments are missed. The Robot Algebra project will develop a set of classroom tools as well as best practices for implementing these teaching tools. Robot Algebra will foreground the mathematics in robotic activities in order to better prepare students for careers in science, technology, and engineering
