Title: Programming Common Math Activities using AppLab from Code.org
Date: Tuesday, January 23, 3:30 - 4:30 CST

Description: Experience programming some old-school activities using new-school technology.  AppLab is free and was designed by Code.org for students ages 13+. It is a drag and drop, block-based development environment for teachers and students to write apps (i.e. programs).  AppLab runs in a browser like Chrome and the apps run well on both iPhone and Android, which make them easy to share.  Activities explored will be simple unit conversion and a polar graphing.
