Scratch Mathematics



This book describes and explains the arithmetic, mathematics and data components of the Scratch Interactive Development Environment (IDE). These components are little used, but could provide a useful tool for a teacher of mathematics, a primary school teacher or home educator looking for new ways to engage a learner. It introduces basic programming skills and an understanding of the mathematics specific code blocks in Scratch. It also provides a way of working with mathematics which is visual and can be engaging. This book also provides examples of the way Scratch can be applied for common arithmetic and mathematics problems such as calculating percentages, testing arithmetic knowledge and applying Pythagoras Theorem amongst others. This book does not a course in mathematics, but it does explain how Scratch can be used as a tool for learning arithmetic and mathematics.
