Abstract

Our work on Performamatics aims to enhance students' computational thinking (CT) by engaging them in fundamental concepts that unite computing and music. Our approach leverages students' near universal interest in music as a context for rich CT experiences. The techniques we share are used in a General Education course open to students in any major called Sound Thinking, which is now being offered for the fourth time.
