Tacoma, Sietske; Drijvers, Paul; Boon, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
Dutch universities complain that freshmen in studies such as chemistry, physics, economics and mathematics do not master the required algebraic skills. In the worldwide discussions on mathematics education, mastery of algebra is also a prevalent issue. Often a distinction is made between basis procedures and algebraic reasoning, so-called symbol…

Aegerter-Wilmsen, Tinri; Kettenis, Dik; Sessink, Olivier; Hartog, Rob; Bisseling, Ton; Janssen, Fred – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
Computer simulations can facilitate the building of models of natural phenomena in research, such as in the molecular life sciences. In order to introduce molecular life science students to the use of computer simulations for model building, a digital case was developed in which students build a model of a pattern formation process in…

Hummel, Hans G. K.; Smit, Herjan – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1996
Describes mathematics courses developed for guided self-study at a distance. The courses incorporate new educational media and special didactic techniques. Provides details about how a computer can be used in such a setting, and focuses on a computer practical examination used for an advanced course in Fourier transforms. (27 references) (DDR)
