Computer-Assisted Instruction and the Teaching of Mathematics. Proceedings of a National Conference on Computer-Assisted Instruction (The Pennsylvania State University, September 24-26, 1968).
Heimer, Ralph T., Ed.
The preface to this book notes the relationship of its contents to the 1968 conference "to appraise mathematics educators of the present status and future prospects of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) and its implications for the teaching of mathematics." The introduction, "Computers in Mathematics and Other Education," was the keynote address by R. W. Gerard. Part 1 on CAI hardware development contains two papers: "Economically Viable Large-Scale Computer-based Education System" by Donald L. Bitzer and "Characteristics of CAI Configurations from an Author's Viewpoint" by Max Jerman. Three papers presented in reaction to the original papers are by Herbert J. Greenberg, Robert Kalin, and Roger E. Wye. Part 2 on CAI software development also contains two papers, "Development of CAI Curriculum" by Duncan N. Hansen and "Implications of Programing Languages for Mathematics Instruction Using Computers" by Karl L. Zinn, and three reaction papers by Richard V. Andree, William R. Uttal, and J. Stanley McConnell. Part 3 on the developing role of CAI in education includes "Roles and Directions in CAI" by Glenn C. Bacon and "The Computer in Education" by Carroll V. Newsom. Included also are a conference summary by Harold E. Mitzel and lists of invited participants and observers. (JS)
