In this course, students will continue mastering the challenges introduced in level one. In this practical and fun Spanish Coding course, students will dive right into coding with JavaScript, one of the world’s most scalable and popular programming languages. They will gain an understanding of basic programming concepts and will develop and run their JavaScript code using a web-based application development laboratory. Students will work on the basics of programming– variables, control statements, loops, and boolean logic – and build a solid foundation for tackling new technology and programming languages. Students will leave the course with a very competitive coding background, and with the motivation to continue honing their coding skills.

Matemáticas Divertidas II: Grades 5-7

Algebra is fun! We recommend taking Matematicas Divertidas I prior to taking this class.

Students will delve into integers, one-step equations, inequalities and equations, graphs and functions, percent, and probabilities among other things. They will learn, understand and apply linear relationships using equations, graphs, and tables. Do you know that learning algebra in Spanish helps develop critical thinking skills? Students will learn to think outside the box through various problem-solving, logic, pattern, and reasoning activities. Technology will be used to introduce and expand upon the areas of study listed above. This course fuses  Spanish and Math in a very interactive way, making the learning process effective and fun. We use a friendly platform, games, and traditional handwritten exercises, applying the time-honored way of teaching Algebra in Latin American countries with the famous Baldor Algebra textbook.
