The programming language Scratch enables students to create characters which are able to dance, sing, and interact with one another. Students are able to create images that whirl, spin, and animate in response to movements of the mouse and integrate images with sound effects and music clips. Students can create an interactive birthday card for a friend, or an interactive school report.

In completing the required tasks, students learn the principles of mathematical and computational needed to achieve the desired outcome. As students create programs in Scratch, they learn core computational concepts such as iteration and conditionals and gain an understanding of important mathematical concepts such as coordinates, variables, and random numbers.
