Barba, Robertta H.; Merchant, Linda J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1990
Discussed is whether embedding generative cognitive strategies in microcomputer courseware improves student performance on cognitive assessment measures and on insect classification tasks. The effects of transactional software on students' knowledge of insect anatomy and principles of insect classification were also investigated. (KR)

Huck, Schuyler W. – Mathematics Teacher, 1975
The author presents a method of producing a scatter diagram of data on two variables with Pearson product moment correlation of .50; he also provides a proof that the method will work for any number of data pairs. (SD)

Barb, Cynthia; Quinn, Anne Larson – Mathematics Teacher, 1997
Highlights the argument that states that problem solving is much more than just solving problems, by focusing on problem-solving history, George Polya's view of problem solving, Asians' successful use of multiple intuitive solutions, and other examples. (ASK)
