Title: Aspects of microcomputers in mathematical education
Authors: Curry, Keith
Issue Date: 1988
Publisher: © Keith Curry
Abstract: This work covers a number of aspects of the use of computers in Mathematics. They range from uses of software through programming for pupils to practical considerations for the classroom. Chapter One looks briefly at the aims of education in general and Mathematics in particular. There is further consideration given to how computers can help with especial reference to the aims of HMI. Chapter Two poses arguments in favour of teaching programming skills. In the third chapter there is a brief discussion about which language would be suitable for teaching purposes. Having suggested Logo, there is a brief history and description of this language before considering some criticisms. The final part of chapter three deals with the practicalities of use in the classroom and chapter four looks more generally at the uses of software in the classroom. The final chapter considers the way ahead for computers in the classroom. There is especial reference to financial and temporal needs. The two appendices give more details regarding the personal experiences used in chapter three in particular.
