READY-STEADY-CODE is a unique way to use SCRATCH at primary school to do maths and coding at the same time. It saves teachers time and effort, while captivating the children to use code as they do their written maths work. Teachers are experts in teaching maths and they require no background in coding to use READY STEADY CODE to support their maths teaching. SCRATCH is free, and so is READY STEADY CODE and – it’s not even limited to primary school! At post-primary level Scratch with RSC can be used with linear and quadratic graphs, co-ordinate geometry, trigonometry etc. Ask the experts!
The READY STEADY CODE fully-resourced training course (primary) shows how to add excitement to maths. It covers sums, number work, algebra, shape, angles, area, block graphs, pie graphs etc. as well as creating games, animations, interactive stories etc. in SCRATCH.
READY STEADY CODE was developed by Seamus O’Neill, author of Ireland’s most popular maths programme Mathemagic. Seamus is a former primary teacher, computer programmer and founder of Navan CoderDojo. He brings a razor sharp focus on what actually works with teachers.
