Mathematics and computation: Using visual programming to develop didactic materials in a learning environment 
source 
SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics  vol. 2  ISBN: 9788580391336] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 2327 November 2015, pp. 581588. 
summary 
We analyse the problem of creating didactic material for teaching and evaluating mathematics in the first year of a School of
Architecture. By using visual programming, science professor used codes (formulae) to represent in a software their proposals,
instead of drawing them themselves. Through this experience we create a database of codes with computational solutions that allows
faculty to modify, reuse, visualise and print in the same platform that she students will use while developing their designs. In this way
we aim to maximise the link between mathematics and design as fundamental base for the control of complex shapes.
