Computers in the algebra classroom : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
Teachers are being urged to use computers in their classrooms, but often find they do not have the time to implement them into the allotted class time. This thesis is meant to give a teacher some concrete ways in which to use computers as a learning tool in their algebra classrooms without having to do a lot of their own research. The software discussed within - Green Globs, Derive, Maple, and Interpreting Graphs - can be very helpful to an algebra student. A short discussion of each package is followed by classroom suggestions for the use of the programs and some comments on the utilization of each.
