    Abstract

    The purpose of this diploma is the cross-curricular integration of computer science and mathematics. In the theoretical part of diploma, we presented cross – curricular integration, neopiaget's theory of cognitive development and the programming language Scratch. Then we described the mathematical concepts that appear in Scratch and students need to know to be able to make more demanding projects. We also presented the learning goals from mathematics and computer science curricula for 4th grade. With the help of this goals we installed activities from Ready – Steady – Code: Numeracy with Scratch cards to the appropriate class in the Slovenian Elementary School. This cards contain a lot of ideas on how to teach computer science and mathematics together. In the empirical part of diploma we presented the implementation of two classes in computer science in the 4th grade. During these two hours, students made a quiz with questions from multiplication and this way they improved their multiplication skills. They also learned concepts from computing, such as variables, random numbers and conditional statements.
