A Review of Computer-Based Model Research in Precollege Science Classrooms.
Stratford, Steven J.
Computers, because of their computational speed and multi-representational capabilities, are particularly well-suited to the implementation of dynamic models. This paper reviews research conducted on the use of computer-based models in precollege science classrooms. Topics addressed include Investigations of Running Simulations, Investigations of Modeling, Investigations of Writing Simulation Programs, and Future Directions. (Contains 41 references.) (WRM)
