We’ve begun our second unit, “As the Cube Turns” in my IMP4 classes. We are about two weeks into the unit and today students started asking, “When are we ever going to use programming in real life?”. I honestly didn’t expect the question to come up about programming (and when will I learn to stop trying to predict what will happen?).
I expected the question to be asked about trig. About matricies. About transformations. Not about programming.
