Abstract

Mathematics is one of the most fundamental subjects for any student's career. Studies indicate that women, minorities and low-income students are particularly most affected to the extent that traditional teaching practices may partially account for the small number of successful students in these categories. This study will examine computer-based instructional strategies that are designed to expand the methods by which teachers introduce high school algebra to students coming from a variety of backgrounds and learning styles. These computer-based strategies are designed to assist students avoid or correct the most common algebraic errors that have been identified by practitioners and other experts in the field. Opinion surveys based on data from students and teachers on the efficacy of these instructional strategies will also be discussed.
