Scientific Visualization in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
Thomas, David A., Ed.
Science and mathematics educators are expected to use existing educational technologies effectively and to keep informed about emerging technologies that might become important educational tools in the not-so-distant future. This monograph offers some help in that regard by highlighting a number of existing and emerging educational technologies. Chapters are: (1) "The Power of Visualization: The Impact of Graphing Technology on the Secondary Mathematics Curriculum," L. E. Yunker; (2) "Using Graphing Calculators to Teach High School Mathematics," L. Kaber & K. Longhart; (3) "Advanced Technologies as Educational Tools in Science: Concepts, Applications, and Issues," D. D. Kumar, P. J. Smith, S. L. Helgeson, & A. L. White; (4) "Videodisc Technology: Applications for Science Teaching," D. R. Lavoie; (5) "Computer Visualization: New Window on Mathematics," D. A. Thomas & M. Mitchell; (6) "Visualizing Computer Science," R. J. Ross; (7) "Getting Started With Supercomputing: An Approach for High School Students," D. W. Hyatt; (8) "Scientific Visualization in Chemistry, Better Living through Chemistry, Better Chemistry through Pictures: Scientific Visualization for Secondary Chemistry Students," R. R. Gotwals, Jr.; (9) "The National Education Supercomputer Program," R. Enderton & B. Lindow; (10) "New Mexico High School Supercomputing Challenge," M. S. Foster; (11) "Sharing Multiple Complementary Representations in the Teaching of Science," N. H. Sabelli & I. S. Livshits; (12) "Education and Collaboration in an Evolving Digital Culture," D. J. Cox; (13) "The Hypergraphics Honors Seminar at Illinois," G. K. Francis; and (14) "A Syllabus For Scientific Visualization," A. Pang. (MKR)
