Van Eck, Richard – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006

Many students enter mathematics courses with a poor attitude toward mathematics (Gal & Ginsburg, 1994), making attitude as important a consideration as achievement in mathematics (Cognition and Technology Group at Vanderbilt (CTGV), 1992; Marsh, Cairns, Relich, Barnes, & Debus, 1984; Sedighian & Sedighian, 1996). Pedagogical agents are often…

Luehrmann, Arthur – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

This analysis suggests that the present low level of use of technology in education results from fundamental incompatibilities between the educational system in the United States and most of the technology systems intended to perform educational functions. Economics alone will not bring an educational productivity revolution. (MP)

Heard, Jr., John T.; Tritz, Gerald J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

A method is detailed for introducing computer usage into any course in a medical curriculum and concomitantly stimulating student utilization of such technology. It is felt medicine will rely more heavily upon computer uses in the future, and that familiarity with computer technology provides confidence and competence in physician usage. (MP)

Eisenkraft, Arthur – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1981

Describes a physics classroom in Briarcliff High School, Briarcliff Manor, New Jersey. Over 50 percent of the student body studies at least a year of physics before graduating, but less than 15 percent take a computer course. The physics programs discussed illustrate five different computer applications. (MP)
