The Effects of Using the TI-92 Calculator To Enhance Junior High Students' Performance in and Attitude toward Geometry.
Ryan, Walter F.
This study extended over three months and involved 344 subjects. It compared the performance and attitudes of seventh-grade students taught geometry using the TI-92 calculator and a supplementary activity manual written to be used with the TI-92 calculator with the performance and attitudes of students using the traditional approach. On a comprehensive common post study geometry examination, the students who were taught geometry using the TI-92 calculator had significantly higher scores than those taught by traditional means. The students who were taught geometry using the TI-92 calculator had a significantly more positive attitude toward the study of geometry than students taught by traditional means.
