Smith, Robert S.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v3 p131-48 1992
Discusses how spreadsheet software can be used at the college level to teach mathematical algorithms that rely on iterative procedures. Describes an application in an Australian college class for second-year mathematics students including curriculum, structure, and projects. Argues that this approach can reverse declining interest in mathematics, improve technological literacy, and revitalize mathematical skills. (JB)
