The United State-Japan Seminar on Computer Use in School Mathematics. Proceedings. (Honolulu, Hawaii, July 15-19, 1991).

Becker, Jerry P., Ed.; Miwa, Tatsuro, Ed.

The purpose of a seminar attended by mathematics educators from the United States and Japan was to explore ways that use of technology in teaching problem solving can improve student learning. The following presentations were made: (1) "A Report of U.S.-Japan Cross-cultural Research on Students' Problem-Solving Behavior," (T. Miwa and T. Fujii); "Results of U.S.-Japan Cross-cultural Research on Students' Problem-Solving Behaviors" (J. Becker); (3) "An Overview of Computer Use for Mathematical Problem Solving in Japanese Schools" (T. Miwa); (4) "Calculators, Computers, and Algebra" (J. Fey); (5) "Using Construction Programs in the Teaching of Geometry" (J. Choate); (6) "On the use of Software in Mathematics Classrooms in Japan" (Y. Sugiyama, T. Kaji, and Y. Shimizu); (7) "Graphing in the K-12 Curriculum: The Impact of the Graphing Calculator" (F. Demana); (8) "A Study of Problem Solving with Cabri-Geometry in Secondary School Mathematics" (N. Nohda); (9) "Some Examples of Mathematics Instructional Software in Japanese Classrooms" (S. Sakitani and S. Iida); (10) Software Demonstrations by the Japanese Delegation (Y. Morimoto); (11) "Where Do Functions Come From? Data Analysis in Secondary Mathematics" (D. Teague); (12) "The Use of Computers in Schools: Some Findings From National and International Surveys" (T. Sawada); (13) "The Use of Computers in Schools: The State of Using Computers in Mathematics Classrooms in Japan" (K. Kumagai); (14) "Presentation of the Hawaii Geometry Learning Project to the U.S. Japan Seminar" (W. G. Martin) (handout provided at seminar); (15) "Computer Use in Teaching Mathematical Problem Solving--Pre-Service Teacher Education at Yokohama National University" (Y. Hashimoto); (16) "Graphical Reasoning for New Approaches to Topics in Mathematics" (S. Dugdale); (17) Software Demonstration by U.S. Delegation (J. Choate and D. Teague); (18) "Mathematical Visualization in Problem Solving Facilitated by Computers" (J. Wilson); (19) "Mathematical Education in a High-Technological Information Oriented Society--What Should It Be?" (T. Uetake); (20) Summary of Seminar (T. Miwa and J. Becker). A delegates list, opening and closing statements, proposed topics for further study, descriptions of software, and a list of supplementary papers are included. (MDH)
