ipythonblocks developed by Matt Davis is a python package that makes a fun learning tool. The package gives students a grid of colorful blocks that they can manipulate.
Our notebook here is what students worked with in this class. Discovering the ability to create colors left them fascinated. We worked through many shades of reds, greens, grays , browns etc .
Next they applied the math modulo operator to understand how to color grid cells. The next lesson is to build a chessboard!
