Actually, I think we agree on more than just that. Our only significant difference seems to be our opinion on the pedagogical value (or lack thereof) of mixing CS and math early on.

When doing geometry, I use POV-Ray (povray.org). When doing figurate and polyhedral numbers, I think a coding language is not out of place. I'm talking about an interactive language with REPL (you type, it replies), not some dead compile / link C code process (that can come later). It's what Logo gave us. It's what kids love (immediate feedback).
