Evans, Bob – 1981
Three applications of microcomputers in Elementary Algebra instruction are described. The paper first discusses a program developed to help students explore the basic algebraic concept of linearity. Text and illustrations show how students can use the computer to visualize the conceptual relationship of slope and intercept, until they can…

Rosenberg, Nancy S. – 1980
A group is viewed to be one of the simplest and most interesting algebraic structures. The theory of groups has been applied to many branches of mathematics as well as to crystallography, coding theory, quantum mechanics, and the physics of elementary particles. This material is designed to help the user: 1) understand what groups are and why they…

Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs. – 1987
Because of the high incidence of failure in algebra I among ninth-grade students, the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education requested the development of this guide with the intention of providing a good pre-algebra foundation. The purposes of the guide are to recognize standards that involve the application of mathematical…

Kohl, Timothy – College Mathematics Journal, 2012
A pair of elementary exercises, one from topology, the other from group theory are such that if one replaces three words in the topology problem, you get the group theory problem and vice-versa. This suggests connections between the two that are explored here.

Humenberger, Hans – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2011
When one uses Google (and many people do this!), the result of the query is a list of sites that have something to do with the item one is looking for. The specific sites are always more or less on the top, so it is not necessary to have a look on hundreds of sites to read something relevant and informative. How can Google manage this? How does…

Beal, Carole R.; Rosenblum, L. Penny – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2015
Introduction: The present study evaluated the feasibility of using an iPad application or "app" for algebra-readiness mathematics, with accompanying braille materials and accessible graphics, when used in authentic educational settings. Methods: Twenty-nine students with visual impairments in grades 4-11 used the materials under the…

Casstevens, Thomas W.; And Others – 1979
This document consists of five units which all view applications of mathematics to American politics. The first three view calculus applications, the last two deal with applications of algebra. The first module is geared to teach a student how to: 1) compute estimates of the value of the parameters in negative exponential models; and draw…

Aydin, Nuh – PRIMUS, 2009
The theory of error-correcting codes and cryptography are two relatively recent applications of mathematics to information and communication systems. The mathematical tools used in these fields generally come from algebra, elementary number theory, and combinatorics, including concepts from computational complexity. It is possible to introduce the…

Schoen, Robert C.; LaVenia, Mark; Tazaz, Amanda M.; Farina, Kristy; Dixon, Juli K.; Secada, Walter G. – Grantee Submission, 2020
Using a cluster-randomized controlled trial research design, this study investigates the effect of the first year of a three-year teacher professional development program on grades 1 and 2 student achievement in mathematics. Although the findings reported in the present report do not meet the standard cutoff for statistical significance (e.g., 95%…
