Let’s debate… in comments below

1)  Should students be able to earn Math credit from Computer Science courses?

2)  Should students be able to earn Foreign Language credit for learning a Programming language?

3)  To what extent should programming be incorporated into ordinary math courses?

4)  #MTBoS: Who are good teachers, organizations, and others worth following in this space?
