Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The use of computer technology as a learning tool is becoming increasingly important in education (Russell, 1982). The Office of Technology Assessment (1982) predicts that by 1994 over four million microcomputers will be found in schools. The National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics has listed computer literacy as one of the ten basic skill areas in mathematics instruction (1978). The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, in its Agenda for Action, has recommended that ''a computer literacy course, familiarizing the student with the role and impact of the computer, should be a part of the education of every student (1980, p9)," Most schools provide opportunities for students to become familiar with computers as well as to learn how to use them. According to Blaschke (1985), approximately 150,000 microcomputers are used primarily for special education (excluding gifted and talent programs) and approximately 300,000 microcomputers are used for administrative purposes.
