Current Use of Computers in the Teaching of Statistics.
Tubb, Gary W.
This paper, prepared for a symposium on the interface of computer sciences and statistics, addresses the use of computers in the teaching of statistics. Two principle means of integrating the fields of computer science education with education in statistics are identified: (1) integrating the content of statistics in courses on computers, and (2) using computers as a method of statistics instruction. The first half of the paper provides a review of six textbooks in current use; three present statistical concepts and problems as examples of programming problems, while the remaining three are designed to teach statistics using computers as an aid in problem solving. The second half of the paper is devoted to a review of research and evaluation findings related to computer assisted instruction, simulations, and both interactional and non-interactional statistical packages. A bibliography containing 62 titles is included. (SD)
