The Influence of Computers and Informatics on Mathematics and Its Teaching. Science and Technology Education Series, 44.
Cornu, Bernard, Ed.; Ralston, Anthony, Ed.
In 1985 the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) published the first edition of a book of studies on the topic of the influence of computers on mathematics and the teaching of mathematics. This document is an updated version of that book and includes five articles from the 1985 ICMI conference at Strasbourg, France; reports by the leaders of three workshops held at that meeting; and four new articles on topics related to mathematics instruction using technology. The articles are: (1) "Overview" (H. Burkhardt and R. Fraser); (2)"The Effect of Computers on Mathematics" (R. F. Churchhouse); (3) "The Impact of Computers and Computer Science on the Mathematics Curriculum" (A. Ralston); (4) "Computers as an Aid to Teaching and Learning Mathematics" (B. Cornu); (5) "Living with a New Mathematical Species" (L. A. Steen); (6) "What are Algorithms? What is Algorithmics?" (S. B. Maurer); (7) "On the Mathematical Basis of Computer Science" (J. Stern); (8) "The Effect of Computers on the School Mathematics Curriculum (K.-D. Graf, R. Fraser, L. Klingen, J. Stewart, and B. Winkelmann); (9) "A Fundamental Course in Higher Mathematics Incorporating Discrete and Continuous Themes" (S. B. Seidman and M. D. Rice); (10) Teacher Education and Training" (B. Cornu); (11) "The Impact of Symbolic Mathematical Systems on Mathematics Education" (B. R. Hodgson and E. R. Muller); (12) "Calculus Teaching and the Computer. On the Interplay of Discrete Numerical Methods and Calculus in the Education of Users of Mathematics" (M. Mascarello and B. Winkelmann); and (13)"Graphic Insight into Mathematical Concepts" (D. Tall and B. West). A list of 62 annotated references and an index are included. (MDH)
