Abstract

Computer-based educational software programs are widely used in elementary schools to enhance learning math. Critical thinking skills are important to allow the student to go beyond fundamental concepts and procedures to solve problem in various situations. We are using content analysis techniques to determine if critical thinking skills are nurtured in computer-based educational software programs. Criteria are developed based on the Integrated Thinking Model of Iowa Department of Education. Several elementary-level math software programs will be selected and evaluated.
