Started teaching BASIC programming to HS students in 1967. Authored two books: Problem Solving with the Computer(1969), and, Fun and Games with the Computer(1975). Now retired after 47 years of teaching HS math. However, I'm now once again interested in programming due to Scratch. I had learned many years ago students were more interested in programming games, etc. then math problems. Now with all the improvements in technology, the Scratch medium provides for creativity and more importantly, fun! Actually my nine year old grandson showed me Scratch. Wow! What a young age to start. So I guess you can still teach an old dog new tricks! Currently teaching a Scratch class (grades 3-6) at our Community Center on North Haven. Hope to interest the school in offering a new Computer Science curriculum. Just completed an online Python programming course.
