Computers in the Classroom: Teacher's Resource Manual for Algebra.
Demonstration programs, possible assignments for students (with solutions), and remedial drill programs for students to use are presented to aid teachers using a computer or a computer terminal in the teaching of algebra. The text can be followed page by page or used as a well-indexed reference work, and specific suggestions are made on how and where to use the computer within the schools' present curriculum. Almost all topics discussed are completely self-contained. The order of major topics follows that used in the Modern Algebra series by Dolciani, Berman, and Wooton: arithmetic operations, variables, and sets; solving equations and inequalities in one variable; using the properties of equality, addition, and multiplication when solving equations; negative numbers; solving first degree equations and inequalities; operations with polynomials; and factoring. Sample programs are written using the Digital Equipment Corporation's FOCAL programing language, but they can be translated into any other interactive language that is suitable for student use. The manual is in loose-leaf form and provides a complete index. (Author/JY)
