The Programmable Calculator in the Classroom.
Stolarz, Theodore J.
The uses of programable calculators in the mathematics classroom are presented. A discussion of the "microelectronics revolution" that has brought programable calculators into our society is also included. Pointed out is that the logical or mental processes used to program the programable calculator are identical to those used to program any computer. A list and description of thirteen mathematical- and computer-related concepts that students can learn by working with programable calculators is presented. The report concludes with four additional uses of these electronic devices by teachers and pupils in the classroom. (MP)
