This study investigated the use of computer-based instruction
as a means of teaching Algebra I, compared to the teaching of the
same topics using traditional methodologies. The achievement level
of the two groups, and three aspects of attitude toward mathematics
were considered. Achievement and attitude differences by gender
were also analyzed.
Students selected for this study were from a large suburban
school district in Texas. The students were from eleven established
Algebra I classes, five of which were designated as the experimental
group, and six as the control group. The sample consisted of 243
The experimental group, using the computer lab daily for the
full 55 minute class period, was presented Algebra I topics using
Learning Logic computer courseware. This is a mastery type
computer-based instruction program, which allowed the students to
progress at their individual pace. The control group, not using the
computer, was taught the same Algebra I topics with traditional
Here’s what’s next.
