An Introduction to This Special Issue: Mathematical Learning in Computer Microworlds.
Steffe, Leslie P.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v8 n2 p85-86 Spr-Sum 1994
Introduces the idea of using computer microworlds--interactive software for exploration of specific concepts--for mathematics education, the theme of this issue's articles. Discusses their development and the advantages of their use. Suggests that they can be successfully used for interactive teaching or for interpreting mathematics textbooks, which treat children as instructable rather than self-organizing systems. (AA)
