Porter, Ronald; Lehman, Jeffrey – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Describes 17 situations in physics which require students to write computer programs to solve. All the projects are general in nature and require students to have a thorough conceptual understanding of the content to apply the algorithm needed to solve the specific type of problem illustrated.

Enochs, Larry G. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Examined effects of beginning computer programing instruction, sex, and home computers on the attitudes of fifth-grade students (N=49). Results of this pilot study showed higher attitudes following instruction and no differences between the sexes or between those who had computers and those who did not. (JN)
