UTILIZATION OF COMPUTER FACILITIES IN THE MATHEMATICS AND BUSINESS CURRICULUM IN A LARGE SUBURBAN HIGH SCHOOL.
RENO, MARTIN; AND OTHERS
A STUDY WAS UNDERTAKEN TO EXPLORE IN A QUALITATIVE WAY THE POSSIBLE UTILIZATION OF COMPUTER AND DATA PROCESSING METHODS IN HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION. OBJECTIVES WERE--(1) TO ESTABLISH A WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH A COMPUTER FACILITY SO THAT ABLE STUDENTS AND THEIR TEACHERS WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO THE FACILITIES, (2) TO DEVELOP A UNIT FOR THE UTILIZATION OF SUCH COMPUTER AND DATA PROCESSING FACILITIES IN THE MATHEMATICS PROGRAM AT EUCLID SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL, (3) TO DEVELOP A CURRICULUM UNIT AND TEACHING METHODS FOR THE UTILIZATION OF SUCH COMPUTER FACILITIES IN THE BUSINESS EDUCATION PROGRAM, AND (4) TO DISCOVER AND IMPLEMENT WAYS TO USE THE COMPUTER FACILITIES IN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AT THE HIGH SCHOOL. AFTER A SATISFACTORY METHOD OF COMPUTER ACCESS WAS ARRANGED THROUGH THE CASE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, PROGRAMS WERE WRITTEN AND PUNCHED INTO CARDS BY 70 STUDENTS. THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT ILLUSTRATIONS OF MATHEMATICS WERE EMPHASIZED, NOT DETAILS OF COMPUTERS. ALL PROJECT OBJECTIVES WERE ACHIEVED. THE CURRICULUM UNIT WHICH WAS DEVELOPED WILL BE EXAMINED AND IMPLEMENTED AT THE SCHOOL. (JC)
