New York State Education Dept., Albany. Center for Learning Technologies.; Northeast Regional Exchange, Inc., Chelmsford, MA.
Fourth in a series, this loose-leaf guide reviews resources for evaluating, selecting, and using software for teaching mathematics and science skills. Both commercial publishers and public domain sources are listed as sources of educational software. Sources of information on software selection are divided into journals and newsletters, books and special publications, information clearinghouses, and human and organizational resources. A section on methods of describing and evaluating educational software for science and mathematics includes two evaluation forms, developed by the National Council of Teachers and the National Science Teachers Association, which contain descriptive application and evaluation criteria for use with science and mathematics programs. Evaluation criteria related to science and mathematics are discussed, and a section on software applications presents data on the educational use of mathematics and science software programs as well as suggestions for curriculum integration and applications. A brief summary calls for revitalization of science and mathematics instruction through use of the computer. Eighteen references are listed. (JB)
