Editorial Reviews

Mathematics Teacher
This book nicely complements NCTM's 1992 yearbook on calculators....[The] articles...are in greater depth and have more of a research emphasis than those in the yearbook. This book should be of special interest to teacher educators, curriculum developers, and researchers in mathematics education.
School Science and Mathematics
...has a broad coverage of topics...it should be of most interest to curriculum developers, teacher educators, and researchers in mathematics education.
Booknews
From a May 1992 conference in Houston, 11 papers reflect on how calculators do and might influence the teaching of mathematics, and make recommendations for future efforts to integrate them into the curriculum. Among the topics are inservice training for teachers, the graphing calculator in pre-algebra courses, supercalculators in undergraduate mathematics, and surveys and assessments from various systems and levels. No index. Paper edition (unseen), $21.50. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
