Well documented curriculum reinforces algebra concepts & teaches programming at the same time

This is a great tool that comes with a well documented curriculum. It requires NO previous knowledge of computer programming. There is a student workbook, an instructor copy of the workbook with answers to the exercises and additional worksheets with answers are also provided. However, some of the answer keys are missing. There is a fairly active user forum which is closely monitored by Dr. Emmanuel Schnauzer, one of the creators of Bootstrap. They also offer professional development workshops throughout the country where educators can share how they are using the tool. The best part about the tool is that it is FREE. You can order the student workbooks from the website, or you can download the PDF file and print them out yourself.

The program is free for New York City teachers, it may be free for your school as well.
