The Effect of Instruction with Graphing Calculators on How General Mathematics Students Naturalistically Solve Algebraic Problems.
Merriweather, Michelle; Tharp, Marcia L.
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v18 n1 p7-22 1999
Focuses on changes in attitude toward mathematics and calculator use and changes in how general mathematics students naturalistically solve algebraic problems. Uses a survey to determine whether a student is rule-based. Concludes that the rule-based students used an equation to solve the algebraic word problem whereas the non-rule-based students used a numeric method. Contains 17 references. (Author/ASK)
