Using Computers in Mathematical Problem Solving
These two publications from the the Mathematics Centre at the University of Chichester focus on how the use of a microcomputer can be used to allow students to get worthwhile mathematical experiences by using a few words from the computers' programming language.
Published by the Mathematics Centre at the University of Chichester, this booklet describes ideas that have been used with students aged 9-11 , although there are indications that older students would benefit from them too. In the first part of the booklet much use is made of procedures that students can use in...
This booklet, from the Mathematics Centre at the University of Chichester, explores how the microcomputer can be a valuable tool when engaged in investigating a situation that leads to such laborious arithmetic that the 'sums' spoil the activity, especially in the organisation of data and the start of a search for...
This report was written post Cockcroft and at a time when a number of organisations were producing computer programs and packages for use in the mathematics classroom. The report is split into a number of sections.
As a teaching aid gives detail of the variety of...
