A Sweet Way To Learn Math

Nov 26, 2013

A PRETTY SWEET DEAL: Drop the “e” in Raspberry Pie, and you get a great tool for teaching kids about computer science. Wolfram, maker of Mathematica, recently teamed up with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to create a pilot version of the Wolfram Language on Raspberry Pi devices. Oh, and yes: students will get a copy of Mathematica on Raspberry Pi. What does this mean for STEM? Students can learn to code, analyze and upload sensor data, and more. Mathematica founder, Stephen Wolfram, writes a blogpost here about what this could mean. As blog Engadget points out: "Every Raspberry Pi owner now has free tools for everything from learning math to sophisticated programming." Sweeeet!
