Herron, Sherry; Gandy, Rex; Ye, Ningjun; Syed, Nasser – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012

A unique aspect of the implementation of a computer algebra system (CAS) at a comprehensive university in the U.S. allowed us to compare the student success and failure rates to the traditional method of teaching college algebra. Due to space limitations, the university offered sections of both CAS and traditional simultaneously and, upon…

Groth, Randall; Burgess, Claudia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The purpose of the present study was to examine the nature of the discourse generated by two different online approaches to mathematics teacher professional development. Thirty mathematics teachers participated in online activities involving analysis and discourse about artifacts of teaching practice. Half were randomly assigned to a group that…

Lavicza, Zsolt – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) is becoming increasingly important and widespread in mathematics research and teaching. In this paper, I will report on a questionnaire study enquiring about mathematicians' use of CAS in mathematics teaching in three countries; the United States, the United Kingdom, and Hungary. Based on the responses…

Walker, Sandra; Senger, Elizabeth – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2007

Algebra has been identified as the foundational course for all other mathematics courses. Yet, research has shown that African-American students are low achievers in all strands of mathematics (NCES, 2001). Computers, on the other hand, have been marketed as an instructional tool to teach and reinforce classroom instructions. This study…

Tilidetzke, Robert – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1992

This study investigated differences in achievement for control groups learning college algebra using traditional classroom instruction methods compared to experimental groups using computer algebra tutorials for three precalculus topics. Two instructors each taught one control group and one experimental group. No significant differences were…

Pinter-Lucke, Claudia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1992

This article provides pedagogical techniques that require active student participation in the use of computer spreadsheets while determining recursive numerical solutions to equations. Included are several computer screen displays which illustrate the various advantages in using spreadsheets specific to synthetic division, the bisection method,…

Dreyfus, Tommy; Halevi, Tirza – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1991

Discussed is the classroom suitability of an open learning computer microworld centered around families of quadratic equations that provides a framework for exploring questions about parabolas to establish the link between the graphical and the algebraic representations of quadratic equations.
