The Effect of a SimCalc Connected Classroom on Students' Algebraic Thinking
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education,
We report the findings of an empirical analysis of the performance of a group of middle and high school students before and after an after-school algebra enrichment program using the SimCalc software incorporating classroom networks. The results highlight statistically significant gains in their learning and briefly outline contributing factors of the innovation that gave rise to such improvement. (Contains 2 footnotes, 4 figures and 2 tables.) [For complete proceedings, see ED500858.]
