Mathematical Models for Educational Planning. Professional Paper.
Wurtele, Zivia S.
The utilization of computer programed mathematical models for educational planning has a brief but rapidly accelerating history. This paper describes and, to some extent, evaluates several of these models. It also discusses some of the theoretical problems associated with their formulation and implementation. Models surveyed are of: (1) the educational system or some of its components, and (2) the economy, in which education is one of several interrelated activities. The final chapter contains some general remarks on the role of mathematical models as tools for educational planning. (Author)
