Smith, David A. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

Some experiences with a classroom computer graphics facility are recounted to show how such a facility has changed the views of some instructors teaching mathematics at the college level. Teachers are encouraged to search out and seize opportunities to acquire graphics hardware, with the added teaching capabilities promoted. (MP)

Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

A study conducted at Crafton Hills College in California indicated that when traditional lecture presentation in a college mathematics course is supplemented with Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI), student performance is greatly improved. Results showed test scores were significantly higher for those students who received CAI than for the…

Battista, Michael T.; Krockover, Gerald H. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

Results of a study involving 94 preservice elementary teachers suggest the instruction students in such programs should be given to develop computer literacy. A model for computer education which consists of four stages is presented in detail. It is recommended that all preservice elementary teachers go through the first two. (MP)

Ford, Marilyn Sue; And Others – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

A computer curriculum including literacy and programing skills is viewed as an example of a program which can easily provide both acceleration of the rate of learning and enrichment through development of higher-level thinking skills. A program used with fifth through eighth grade children in Tempe, Arizona is described. (MP)

Wileman, Stanley; And Others – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

Strong relationships were found between mathematical competencies and probable success in beginning computer science courses. It is felt the study reinforces the importance of all students attaining mathematical competence while in high school. The possibility of more accurately advising students regarding potential for success in computer science…

Goles, Gordon G. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

Microcomputer simulation games are discussed and are viewed as being of the same nature as traditional imitation and role-playing activities. Some aspects of six commercially available games that could be used in computer assisted instruction (CAI) are reviewed. All examples chosen were among those thought to emphasize positive attitudes.

Thompson, H. Bradford; Hermiller, Susan M. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

A program called PROBLEM is detailed. It is a framework program built around a module structure that helps to make the development of computer-supervised drill much more manageable. It is viewed as an efficient approach in substantial areas of instruction in science and engineering. The material is entirely written in BASIC. (MP)

Gale, Robert J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982

Presented are simple programs in BASIC and FORTRAN to apply the method of least squares. They calculate gradients and intercepts and express errors as standard deviations. An introduction of undergraduate students to such programs in a chemistry class is reviewed, and issues instructors should be aware of are noted. (MP)
