Abstract

Computational Thinking (CT) has skills that can be explored in Math questions and can improve student’s capability of solving problems. Approaches have been proposed in the literature to support teachers in elaborating, sharing, and searching Math questions that stimulated CT skills. However, the wide dissemination of these approaches has problems to put in practice by teachers. To fill this gap, in this paper, we present a digital application that aims to help the teachers to work in CT skills through activities of creation, cataloging, and utilization of Math questions. The validation of the application propose here was conducted with undergraduate students in Math, who reported that the solution is easy to use and supports and helps teachers put in practice creating, cataloging, and utilizing Math questions to stimulate CT skills. Also, the application able the searching and sharing Math questions between teachers easily.
