A description and evaluation are provided of the ISCI (Individualized Supplementary Calculus Instruction) project. ISCI is a computer-based resource that can be used with any text or computer system. If a student fails to solve homework problems, he can provide information about his attempted solution through a teletype or other computer terminal. After finding the error in his attempted solution, ISCI points out that there is an error, then gives as many hints and/or explanations as the student requests, until he is able to continue the solution independently. Three facets of the ISCI project are the use of the system in Minnesota and neighboring states, program access at the University of Minneapolis Campus, and worldwide mailings about the system. Appended are a published article on the ISCI program entitled, "Tutor Resources in Mathematics," and details of ISCI evaluation in an article entitled, "ISCI: A Computer Answers Dumb Questions." (SW)
