Science Computer Software. A Handbook on Selection and Classroom Use.
Designed for use by science teachers, this document provides selected lists of computer software collected by the Science and Mathematics Software (SAMS) lab at Florida State University. The commercially available software is compiled under the subject areas of biology, chemistry, and physics. Each list provides: (1) recommended grade level; (2) type of software (e.g. drill and practice, tutorial, simulation, game, tool); (3) publisher; and (4) price. Included are reviews done by the SAMS lab on selected software from each discipline. Twelve software programs are reviewed in the biology section, ten in chemistry, and eight in physics. The chapter on chemistry also mentions additional software available through the National Science Foundation-funded project SERAPHIM at Eastern Michigan University. Addresses of publishers/distributors of all the commercial software listed are also included. (TW)
