Teaching Problem Solving and Mathematics By Computer: An Interim Report.
Roman, Richard Allan
An interim report from the National Science Foundation describes the FUNCTIONS program--an ongoing effort to teach problem solving and mathematics by computer. Two problems are discussed: How can math content be taught in a manner which also develops problem solving skills? Also, how does a curriculum organized to develop problem solving skills teach math content? The report concludes that both can be taught if math content is structured as a sequence of problems in which students induce organizational rules from examples. The report includes a description of the procedure, the computer programs, and the preparation of math content. According to this report, 88 percent of students taught this way achieve course objectives. (SK)
