O'Callaghan, Brian R.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v29 n1 p21-40 Jan 1998
Describes a research project that examined the effects of the Computer-Intensive Algebra (CIA) and traditional algebra curricula on students' (N=802) understanding of the function concept. Results indicate that CIA students achieved a better understanding of functions and were better at the components of modeling, interpreting, and translating. Concludes that the CIA students showed significant improvements in their attitudes towards mathematics. Contains 38 references. (Author/ASK)
