Thompson, H. Bradford; Tuttle, Caroline – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984
Provides examples of nested subroutines, focusing on the Gaussian quadrature function and test program (program listings included). Nested subroutines, features of the Gaussian quadrature, and when not to use it are considered. (JN)

Thompson, H. Bradford – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1983
This column is designed to share BASIC sub-programs and to show how subroutines and function subprograms may be used to simplify and organize BASIC programing. The yes-no function is defined and programs presented, followed by the multiple-branch function and adding a HELP feature. (MNS)

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)
