For various reasons I have found myself learning (re-learning) basic probability theory and PHP access to a MySQL database from a web page. Its actually quite hard without good on-line resources, teachers or examples that are fit for purpose. In fact is is VERY frustrating.
I suspect some of my students find this material equally hard and for this reason I must invest time and effort in facilitating different ways they can learn. Easier said than done… but we have invested in some games of Snakes and Ladders to help teach programming, hopefully this will help.
