Williams, Douglas; Ma, Yuxin; Prejean, Louise – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
Educational robotics activities are gaining in popularity. Though some research data suggest that educational robotics can be an effective approach in teaching mathematics, science, and engineering, research is needed to generate the best practices and strategies for designing these learning environments. Existing robotics activities typically do…
