1 Algebra Nation and Computer Science for MS Initiatives Marla Davis, Ph.D. NBCT Office of Secondary Education METIS Conference July 21-23, 2017 Jackson Convention Center Algebra Nation 1

2 Algebra Nation: History Used statewide in Florida since 2013 Mississippi Pilot Program: School Year Record of Success 100% of FL s school districts use Algebra Nation (no state mandate) +8% increase in scores statewide since Algebra Nation launched Algebra Nation helps all students: gender, race, economic status 2

3 Mississippi Pilot Program: 20 pilot districts 30 pilot districts due to huge demand: Aberdeen School District Bay St. Louis -Waveland School District Booneville School District Canton Public School District Chickasaw County School District Claiborne County School District Greenville Public School District Grenada School District Gulfport School District Hinds County School District Hollandale School District Holly Springs School District Humphreys County School District Jones County School District Lamar County School District Lauderdale County Schools Laurel School District Leflore County School District Leland School District Long Beach School District Meridian Public School District Monroe County School District Newton County Schools Simpson County School District South Tippah School District Sunflower County School District Tishomingo County Schools Vicksburg-Warren School District Winona School District Yazoo City Municipal School District 3

4 5 Components of Algebra Nation 1. State-Standards Aligned Videos 2. Study Guides / Workbooks 3. Test Yourself! Practice Tool 4. Algebra Wall 5. Teacher Area 1. State-Standards Aligned Videos 4

5 2. Study Guides / Workbooks 3. Test Yourself! Practice Tool 5

6 4. Algebra Wall 5. Teacher Area 6

7 Every device is supported Mid-Year Evaluation: Teachers who use AN rely much less heavily on textbook usage overall and instead supplement teaching with interactive, more differentiated instruction through the AN program 90% of teachers surveyed said Algebra Nation should be available to teachers statewide 7

8 Different Ways Algebra Nation is Being Used Substitute Teachers After-School Support (homework help, boot camps) Whole Class Instruction Differentiated Instruction Projector, Computer Lab, 1:1 Devices Flipped Classroom Student Absences Teacher Content Support We ve been hearing great feedback 8

9 From TEACHERS. I have been using your lessons, workbooks, and videos combined with other resources I have to teach Algebra 1 this year. As a result we have not been working in our Pearson books very often. Today, we pulled out our books to do some extra practice work and I discovered to my surprise that we are almost through with all the topics through Chapter 9. I have never been this far in the book at this point in the year! I credit Algebra Nation with helping my students master content so we could move on and also with eliminating lessons that do not align with my state standards. Because of both of these things, we are successfully completing all of the requirements for an Algebra 1 class in Mississippi. Keep up the good work and thanks again! Sincerely, Carra C. Turner Algebra 1 Teacher Chicaksaw County From TEACHERS. 18 9

12 WHAT S NEXT? We hope to: Have Algebra Nation statewide Reach every algebra student and teacher Create even more resources (more Test Yourself! Problems, more video content, a Smart Search Index, and more!) per Mississippi s teachers and students requests Questions about Algebra Nation? 12

13 Computers and software are changing everything and impacting every field 13

14 The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 1 million open computing jobs in the U.S. by 2022 These are jobs in every industry and every state. Sources: Conference Board, Bureau of Labor Statistics 14,000 Fewer computer science graduates than 10 years ago (and half as many women): 12,000 10,000 8,000 6,000 4,000 2,000 0 MALE FEMALE Source: National Science Foundation, National Center for Education Statistics 14

15 The value of a computer science education Source: Brookings Computer Science is NOT ICT 1, ICT 2, Technology Foundations, or STEM 15

16 Computer science is about logic, problem solving, and creativity Computer science is foundational! Included in the new Elementary and Secondary Education Act as a well-rounded education subject (Section 4107, C) 16

17 Every 21 st century student should have a chance to learn about algorithms, how to make apps, or how the internet works. Just like they learn about the digestive system, photosynthesis, or electricity. but the majority of schools don t teach computer science: 9 in 10 parents want their child to study computer science 1 in 4 schools teach computer programming Source: Gallup 17

18 Some may think: This problem is about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) The STEM problem is in computer science: 67% of all new jobs in STEM are in computing 8% of STEM graduates are in computer science Sources: Bureau of Labor Statistics, National Center for Education Statistics 18

19 Tech s diversity problem is also in CS High school computer science University computer science Software workforce Women who try AP Computer Science in high school are ten times more likely to major in it in college, and Black and Hispanic students are seven times more likely.

21 What Can We Do? 1.Start After-School Coding Clubs 2.Participate in Hour of Code Events 3.Be Part of The CS4MS Pilot CS Pilot Program 3 year pilot Year 1 ( ) Implement Code.Org curriculum in at least one grade at the K-5 level (20hrs/year) Offer Exploring Computer Science (ECS) for at least one high school course. 38 Districts participated. Over 200 teachers trained. K-5 Implementation hours over the course of the school year covering coding, cyber safety & keyboarding. Deliver content in whatever setting works best for your situation: Classroom teacher Librarian Computer Lab Roving Teacher Rotational Class High School Implementation Exploring Computer Science (ECS) year-long course Algebra is a pre-requisite: must be taking or have taken 21
