Mobile Programming Course

Math Arena is striving to help students acquire new experiences and knowledge. For example, in our math video competition, students get a chance to communicate through video and provide instruction. These are essential skills in the 21st century.

In Math Arena, we would like to introduce computer programming.  This is an important skill and we believe in time to come, this may be a key part of our education at a much younger age.

We have decided to interest our students with App Inventor for Android — an open-source web application originally provided by Google, and now maintained by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Its interface is similar to scratch, another product maintained by MIT.

Before starting the class:

Students will need to work on the first 3 steps. See Below.

 Pioneer Batch Holiday Class: This will be a 3 day event (Wed-Fri) of 2.5 hours each. The student may have homework assignment. The program is likely to start in late October or early November. To defray some costs, pioneers will pay an administrative fee of only $50. Compare this to holiday programs that cost a few hundred dollars, this should be a great opportunity for the students to have fun and challenge themselves. 

The above is completed. Advance course starts 27,28 Nov for the pioneer batch.
