You're right. My students learn primarily through projects.

Yes, Since the more advanced material I teach requires a decent grasp of math, I felt math+programming would be a good mix. As for doing functions, I might try teaching that earlier to kids so that they can understand problems that complete functions. I absolutely agree with the unit test stuff, and I'll try to expose more of the test cases in the future.

Thanks. I'm going to reformat the questions along this style over the next couple days! As for not needing to say programmers have access to the internet... I keep telling some of the kids in elementary and middle school that, and yet they feel so compelled to try to figure it out without the net. Might be because they feel like they're cheating.
