Hartley, J. R.
Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) is presented as a tool to assist with the teaching and learning of mathematics. Three types of learning are distinguished and the role of CAL within each of these areas is presented. The learning types described are the acquisition of concepts, the learning of relations and rules, and problem solving. Some CAL research and developmental studies in mathematics, along with applications, are reviewed. Sections also cover techniques of program and language design and how materials are used in order to achieve particular learning outcomes. This report concludes with some observations on the present requirements and future directions of CAL. (MP)
