Computer Usage among High School Teachers of Mathematics and College Mathematics Faculty.
High, Robert V.; Marcellino, Patricia A.
This paper reports on a survey instrument designed to measure opinions regarding computer knowledge and usage among high school teachers of mathematics (N=66) and college faculty of mathematics (N=25). Findings indicate that the college faculty made reference to computer usage more often in their lectures than did the high school teachers. Additionally, the college faculty estimated their knowledge of computers higher than did the high school teachers, but evaluated their students' knowledge as lower than the evaluation given by the high school teachers. Finally, both the high school teachers and the college faculty agreed that they rarely used the Internet in the classroom, but both groups said they anticipated more usage in the future. The survey instrument is also included. (Author/JRH)
