Computers in Mathematics Education. 1984 Yearbook.

Hansen, Viggo P., Ed.; Zweng, Marilyn J., Ed.

The role of computers (especially microcomputers) in the mathematics curriculum and suggestions for using them in mathematics instruction are discussed in this yearbook. The 27 articles are presented under five headings. Part 1, Issues, includes articles on comprehensive instructional computing, possible new curricula, and a syllabus for a computer literacy course. Part 2, The Computer as a Teaching Aid, includes descriptions of computer-based numeration instruction, the computer as a learning center, and courseware for various mathematical topics. In Part 3, Teaching Mathematics through Programming, are suggestions for using computers with students at each school level, including problem solving and applications. Part 4, Diagnostic Uses of the Computer, provides articles on computer diagnosis of algorithmic errors and diagnostic uses of computers in precalculus mathematics. Part 5 is a selected bibliography on computers in the classroom. (MNS)
