Made with schools


Dodo Does Math combines two important fields – math and computer programming. By integrating programming in the context of math problems, Dodo Does Math offers a much needed opportunity for teachers to expand the curriculum students are presented with in school.

math and coding for kids
Coding for kids - math


Each challenge uses CoffeeScript code, so students utilize a real-world coding language. While there are many coding languages to choose from, CoffeeScript is the perfect language for kids and beginners to learn since it has many real-life uses yet it remains intuitive to learn. CoffeeScript is similar to JavaScript in that it is primarily used for web applications, however, it has a much friendlier syntax that resembles the way we write in English.


With guidance along the way, practicing math and code has never been easier. Since learning programming at a young age helps students gain a lifetime of opportunities, the more intuitive the platform, the better. You can assign your class Dodo Does Math as extra math practice. Students can then independently continue practicing after-school as an AI system runs in the background and guides students with helpful hints and feedback.
