Abstract:

This new book and accompanying disk were designed to be used in a mathematics course for prospective and in-service secondary teachers, in a high school computer-mathematics course, and as a resource for secondary mathematics teachers using microcomputers in their classes. The microcomputer is a powerful tool for teaching mathematics, and Jon L. Sicks demonstrates new ways to consider traditional topics in order to make use of the computer. He shows how to approach such topics as: greatest common divisors, prime numbers, systems of linear equations, derivatives, and integrals. He also shows how to use computer graphics to graph functions and to model motion. The author balances the text material between mathematics and programming. You need only a beginning knowledge of BASIC and an understanding of FOR-NEXT loops and IF-THEN statements. -- from back cover.
