Engel, Arthur – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1971
A discussion of the importance and procedures for including probability in the elementary through secondary mathematics curriculum is presented. Many examples and problems are presented which the author feels students can understand and will be motivated to do. Random digits, Monte Carlo methods, combinatorial theory, and Markov chains are…

Wegman, Edward J. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1974
The use of computer graphics in an introductory statistics course is described. The advantages over more traditional diagrammatic representations are discussed and an outline is given of two computer-supported graphic display systems. A description is also provided of an experiment, designed to evaluate the influence of such graphic aids. (JP)

Alker, Hayward R., Jr. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1974
Achievements, limitations, and difficulties of social science simulation efforts are discussed with particular reference to three examples. The pedagogical use of complementary developmental, philosophical, mathematical, and scientific approaches is advocated to minimize potential abuses of social simulation research. (LS)

Maor, Eli – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1974
An interpretation of the transformation formulas for rotations in a plane in terms of the exponential function is given. Addition of two rotations is shown to correspond to the multiplication of the two corresponding matrices. (Author/LS)

Astin, J. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1974
A systematic approach to general orthogonal co-ordinates, suitable for use near the end of a beginning vector analysis course, is presented. It introduces students to tensor quantities and shows how equations and quantities needed in classical problems can be determined. (Author/LS)

Flener, Frederick O. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1978
Questions regarding the type of teacher input and its effect on immediate and delayed performance in student problem-solving are examined. Specific guidelines for the classroom teacher are then suggested. (Author/MA)

Seltman, Muriel; Seltman, P. E. J. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1978
The authors stress the importance of bringing together the causal logic of history and the formal logic of mathematics in order to humanize mathematics and make it more accessible. An example of such treatment is given in a discussion of the centrality of Euclid and the Euclidean system to mathematics development. (MN)

Daly, D. W.; And Others – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1977
This paper describes the nature and use of a computer-assisted sequence of instruction in college-level mathematics. Units in differential and integral calculus and geometry are described. The authors claim that students acquire increased confidence in their knowledge and problem-solving ability. (SD)

MacDonald, T. H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 1977
The author develops a four-stage model for concept-internalization. The stages are: (1) concrete structure; (2) linguistic structure; (3) algorithm; and (4) mastery. The model is related to teaching methods and the teaching of long division is examined in detail. (SD)
