Computers in the Secondary Mathematics Curriculum.
Copple, Christine
The purpose of this document is to increase the educator's awareness of the present situation in computers in the school. Although the study was directed at computers in the secondary mathematics curriculum, of necessity much of the material dealt with broader aspects of the computer in all secondary curricula. The first section of this report consists of a glossary of commonly used computer-oriented terms. The bulk of the document is a series of annotations of some of the current literature on computers, the first portion focusing on facts, figures, poritions, and attitudes regarding computer use in the secondary curriculum. The second set of annotations deals with computer uses in the mathematics classroom, and is subdivided into the following areas of concentration: (1) the teaching of computer literacy; (2) the teaching of computer science; and (3) computer-assisted instruction. The final annotation section focuses on the special aspects of microcomputers. The document concludes with a summary, some general conclusions, and two specific recommendations regarding computer use at the secondary level. (MP)
