Abstract

In the context of computational thinking receiving increased focus in education, this paper has four purposes: 1) review the literature on computational thinking; 2) explore connections between computational thinking and mathematics education; 3) describe a new blended course on computational thinking in mathematics education for K-6 preservice teachers; and 4) outline the method for researching the preservice teachers' experience and learning in this course. The course will run for 9 weeks, two hours per week, starting in January 2016 and ending early in March. All of the data will be collected during this time and an initial analysis will be presented at the 2016 SITE conference.
