Teaching Social Facts with Computers
Davis, James A.
Teaching Sociology, 5, 3, 235-58, Apr 78
Advocates six principles in teaching sociology: (1) courses should deal with more factual material; (2) three to five variable systems are natural units of empirical sociological knowledge; (3) students must work with results; (4) time sharing computers are the best means of teaching social facts; (5) computer output should be mostly percentage and frequency tables; and (6) students of social facts should deal with many cases but relatively few variables.
