It is normal practice today for organizations to store large quantities of records of related information as computer-based files or databases. Purposeful information is retrieved by performing queries on the data sets. The purpose of DATABASE MANAGER is to communicate to students the method by which the computer performs these queries. This simulation brings the topic to life by representing the records physically and visibly in adjacent locations in the classroom, by anthropomorphizing the key roles and operations that are required, and through explicit attention to the data access methods.
