Pre-College Mathematics Education Using Computers. Development in Science Education. Project Awards Fiscal Years 1980 and 1981 and Selected Related Projects Supported in Earlier Fiscal Years.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
A listing of awards made by the Division of Science Education Development and Research (SEDR) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) during fiscal year 1980 and 1981 and selected related projects supported in earlier years is presented. All references made to actual award amounts are noted as subject to adjustment by financial statements prepared by NSF at the close of fiscal years reviewed. It is noted that purchase orders, funds for personnel as provided in the Intergovernmental Personnel Act, and International Travel Awards are excluded from the report. The document opens with a discussion of pre-college mathematics using computers, which looks at: (1) the role of the National Science Foundation; (2) changes that are possible; (3) the projects; and (4) the future. This portion considers questions such as: (1) What are some of the substantive improvements in the mathematics curriculum that the computer makes possible? (2) Can young children learn mathematics using computers? and (3) What new equipment seems to be useful? The bulk of the document is devoted to a presentation of project summaries. The table of contents refers to projects alphabetized first by states, and then by institutions within each state. (MP)
