Pensamento Computacional e Educação Matemática: Relações para o Ensino de Computação na Educação Básica

Conference: XX Workshop sobre Educação em Computração (WEI), At Curitiba


The pervasiveness of computer devices in everyday situations poses a fundamental question about Computer Sciences as being part of those known as basic sciences. By doing this, it would be straightforward to consider it to be taught in initial series – not exactly the computation as a technique, but instead as a way of organizing thinking and problem solving. Under this perspective, there are inherent relationships among the knowledge, skills and attitudes that emanate from this field and those ones commonly related to Math. This paper aims to discuss this relationship by presenting a mapping between skills defined in the Brazilian Curriculum Guidelines and activities aimed at developing Computation Thinking skills described in the literature. By doing this, some challenges for education in Computer Sciences are identified.

    • "Outros esforços são em direção ao suporte da computação a disciplinas da educação básica [Freitas e Santos 2005, Barcelos e Silveira 2012, Torezani et al. 2013] e até mesmo a uma educação inclusiva [Alcoba 2003]. Em [Barcelos e Silveira 2012], os autores apresentam algumas tendências de pesquisa relacionadas ao ensino de computação como ciência básica, discutindo suas possíveis relações com a educação matemática , bem como fazem um paralelo com as competências definidas para o ensino de Matemática nos Parâmetros Curriculares Nacionais para o Ensino Médio. Espera-se com isso, proporcionar alguns caminhos para que asáreas possam se beneficiar mutuamente com o desenvolvimento de estratégias pedagógicas conjuntas. "

    ABSTRACT: Build a computer program requires skills as the ordination of thought, abstract thinking, problem solving and logical and mathematical reasoning. Promote contact elementary students with the world of computer programming is an opportunity to stimulate the development of these skills. This paper reports the experience that elementary school students from two public schools in Belém-PA had with computer programming. These students are from the seventh and eighth years, and they had computer programming classes with the Logo language in KTurtle environment. We observed that the students who had contact with this experience improved their performance on math, when compared with classmates that did not have contact. We hope that the reported experience stimulates the adoption of computer programming initiatives in the curriculum of elementary school students.
