Computers and Curricula in the New Jersey Secondary Public Schools.
Versteegh-Limberg, Joyce E. A.
This 1978 survey of 408 New Jersey secondary public schools found that 242 of them use a computer for instructional purposes. Primarily the computer is used in teaching students to write programs and as a computational aid to problem solving, with mathematics departments making the greatest use of these applications. The survey results justify the practice of those colleges already offering computer science courses for undergraduate and graduate mathematics education majors. It is recommended that mathematics education curricula and inservice programs be modified to include other computer related courses in addition to computer science courses. A bibliography and copies of the questionnaires used together with cover letters and instructions are included. (Author/JEG)
