Stewart, William J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Describes a system in which the computer, by interacting with an information bank, produces an individual or group diagnostic profile specifying the nature of the factors that contribute to mathematics difficulties and student variability. The computer also generates suggestions for remediating the learning difficulties and accommodating student…

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.

Levin, Sidney – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Presents the listing (TRS-80) for a computer program which derives the relativistic equation (employing as a model the concept of a moving clock which emits photons at regular intervals) and calculates transformations of time, mass, and length with increasing velocities (Einstein-Lorentz transformations). (JN)

Powers, Michael H. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Outlines a problem-solving method for beginning chemistry students that utilizes specific, concrete steps as well as computer-assisted tutorials. The method involves an approach referred to as the Factor-Unit Method coupled with a graphical "road map" which allows students to trace problems from start to finish. (JN)
