Fox, John N.; Eddy, Jerry K. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1990

This paper describes how computers were employed by workshop participants, the commercial materials used, some of the experiments performed using computer interfaces, and the effect of computer interfacing on the science laboratory. Increased student interest through the study of open-ended experiments is discussed. (CW)

Swadener, Marc; Jarrett, Karen – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1987

Discusses the results of a survey on the usage of computers in secondary schools. Indicates that the majority of use was by computer classes; more staff development is needed for teachers of non-computer classes; and there is insufficient hardware and software available for non-computer classes.

McDonald, Jacqueline; And Others – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1988

Describes a field test of the "Diagnostic Test of Computational Skills." Examines whether or not a computer can efficiently analyze student answers, previously unidentified computational error patterns and errors related to student use of microcomputers. Concludes that this method can be useful for immediate and accurate diagnostic information.…

Kelly, Gwendolyn N.; And Others – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1987

Reports on a study designed to further investigate whether structured Logo learning experiences would have a positive influence on student understanding of selected basic geometry concepts. Results indicated more than just one year of Logo instruction would be needed to improve students understanding of simple angle and distance concepts. (TW)

Stuessy, Carol L.; Rowland, Paul M. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1989

Discusses a microcomputer-based laboratory (MBL) study (n=75) which uses multiple temperature gathering devices (mercury thermometer, digital thermometer, and computer probe) and graphing methods (hand graphs, delayed computer graphs, and real-time graphs). Reports that MBL real-time graphing provides significant increases in graphing skills. (MVL)

Adams, Dennis M.; Hamm, Mary – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1988

Surveys the current status of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Discusses intelligent tutoring systems, robotics, and applications for educators. Likens the status of AI at present to that of aviation in the very early 1900s. States that educators need to be involved in future debates concerning AI. (CW)
