The Use of the Computer as a Unique Teaching Tool for Introductory Calculus, Final Report.
Schmidt, Harvey E.
Reported are the results of an experiment designed to test the effectiveness of computer use by junior college students in a calculus class. The primary objective involved the replacing of pencil and paper computations by a computer program output. The topical areas of investigation were limits, extrema, functional evaluation, and integration. There was no significant difference in achievement between fifteen students using the computer as a calculator and fifteen students using pencil and paper. (RS)
