Anchoring Computational Thinking in Today's Curriculum »

What's the relationship among computational thinking, maths, coding and Computer-Based Maths? Conrad Wolfram's blog on the why, what and how.

Computers liberated real-world maths from hand calculating to go far further and faster than anyone could have imagined. Now it's vital that educational maths stands on this automation too.

CBM needs your support. We've built a solid intellectual, practical and broad-based foundation for this fundamental change to education, and education is notoriously hard to change. So we have lots to do!

What Crisis?

The importance of maths to jobs, society and thinking has exploded over the last few decades. Meanwhile, maths education is in worldwide crisis—diverging more and more from computational thinking–based problem-solving required by countries, industry, further education... and students. More »

Why Computers?

Computers are key to bridging this chasm: only when they do the calculating is maths applicable to hard questions across many contexts. Real-life maths has been transformed by computer-based calculation; now mainstream maths education needs this fundamental change too.

Why ComputerBasedMath.org?

Because we're unique in building a completely new, high-concept maths curriculum with computer-based computation at its heart—redefining maths as the anchor subject for computational thinking across all subjects, centred on real-life problem solving, not historical hand-calculating techniques. More »
