Steele, Kathleen J.; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1984
To examine the effects of using a microcomputer in mathematics instruction, a nine-month study with 87 fifth-grade students was conducted. The group having drill-and-practice on the microcomputer improved significantly more than a group using an individualized kit, and also gained significantly in computer literacy. (MNS)
Descriptors: Computer Assisted Instruction, Computer Literacy, Computer Oriented Programs, Drills (Practice)
