Soloworks: Computer-Based Laboratories for High School Mathematics.
Dwyer, Thomas A.
School Science and Mathematics, Jan 75
The Soloworks project is based on the belief that student-controlled computing is a promising innovation in secondary mathematics instruction. The Soloworks project is following up three years of experience in the Pittsburgh public school system with a new program encorporating both student-controlled computing and modern math curricula. The work is organized around five labs: a computer lab, focusing on those aspects of mathematics that are well described by algorithms; a dynamics lab, focusing on mathematics that describe processes that take place in time, a logical design lab that uses both digital and analog circuit modules; a synthesis lab which is concerned with mathematics that make use of superimposition and synthetic music, and a modeling/simulation lab that uses mathematics as a tool for creating, studying, and manipulating new models of reality.
