We've talked a lot about ways to do more with FOSS in courses that aren't
project-based or software engineering,

and particularly about doing this in CS1/CS2.

 

Here's a first draft of an activity for CS1/CS2 that explores the JDK Math
library.

I can imagine doing similar activities for other parts of the JDK (e.g.
ArrayList), other standard libraries (C, Python, etc),

and activities that explore key algorithms & data structures for operating
systems, languages, AI, etc.

Does this seem like a good direction to explore? Anyone interested in
piloting activities, or helping to write more?
