Guinan, Tricia; Stephens, Larry – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1988
Considers three questions regarding computer science courses: (1) Can performance be predicted?; (2) Does a solid mathematical background provide the student with an advantage?; and (3) Is gender a factor in performance or aptitude? Reports a strong math background was related to achievement in a beginning course while gender was not related. (MVL)

Gorsky, Paul; Finegold, Menahem – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1992
Reports on the development and application of a series of computer programs which simulate the outcomes of students' perceptions regarding forces acting on objects at rest or in motion. This dissonance-based strategy for achieving conceptual change uses an arrow-based vector language to enable students to express their conceptual understanding.…
