Talk:Computer-based mathematics education

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I propose a new title: Computers in mathematics education. You see, mathematics education is not divided in computer-based and paper-based. It is divided according to the mathematics content, and according to the age of the students. Only rarely one can single also some aspects by geography or by type, like Mathematics education in the US/France/Russia or the present article. So, we should not invent non-scientific notions of abacus-based and computer-based mathematics education. We can however talk about the usage of computers in mathematics education.

  • The essential distinctions is between computers as the topic of study within mathematics or as the means of delivery of mathematical education. Our topic is the latter and the current title says this well enough. Colonel Warden (talk) 19:27, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Some actual sources[edit]

Here are some sources I found on computerized mathematics instruction. Probably some or all of them would be useful in turning this into a better article. At least from the titles they look more relevant than many of the removed sources above. But my suspicion is that this is just the tip of the iceberg and that the subject has a much larger literature, in which case we would be better off finding some recent surveys or texts that cover the field more thoroughly. (Disclaimer: I have done some past consulting for ALEKS, a computerized mathematics program that is the subject of one of these papers.)

Math-Bridge de-merge[edit]

While it was decided to merge Math-Bridge into this article, nothing is written about it. I removed the redirection and restored the original article. Feel free to find a better solution. Torzsmokus (talk) 10:10, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

The consensus of the AfD was to merge, with a strong secondary opinion that if there was nothing to merge that it should be deleted. Unless you have new evidence for the notability of this project, I don't see how restoring the article fits into that consensus. —David Eppstein (talk) 21:48, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
