Abstract: Bricklayer is a system that allows people to use programming to create images and other visual artifacts. It has been used with students from elementary school through college in order to support the learning of mathematics concepts including functions and geometry. This round table will demonstrate Bricklayer, describe our current efforts in using Bricklayer to teach mathematics, and engage participants in brainstorming how they might apply it in their own settings as well.
