Early Learning of Logic and Geometry Using Microcomputers: Final Report.
Piestrup, Ann M.
This document primarily consists of source code listings for software developed under a grant from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Education (NSF/NIE). The code contains the following learning games: (1) Turn and Match; (2) Logic Arcade; and (3) Logic Gates. Also included are an assembler for the 6502 microprocessor and subroutines for accessing a prototype children's keyboard. Not included is a proprietary graphics utility which is incorporated in each of the three games. This material was designed out of a collaboration of mathematics educators and programers that was aimed at creating logic and geometry programs that could be used by young gifted children. Attached to the listings of code is a short discussion of the project that contains the following major sections: (1) Abstract of Theses; (2) Public Citations and Reprints of Articles; (3) Data on Scientific Collaborators; and (4) Technical Description of Project and Results. The software is designed for an Apple II Plus microcomputer that has 48K Random Access Memory (RAM) and Disk Operating System (DOS) 3.3. (MP)
