Abstract

Integrating CAI into the math curriculum is a challenging process. Computers change the way teachers teach and the way students learn. The learning process is affected by a combination of factors; for example, learners' attitudes toward math and computers, learners' computer skills, quality and the suitability of the computer learning system, and the way the instructor conducts the course and interacts with the student. This study is designed to explore factors affecting the Guam Community College students' math learning experiences via CAI interactive learning system. The primary instrument for this study was a modified survey questionnaire. In order to gain a fuller insight into the students learning process, the data for this study were also drawn from other sources: (1) student interview; (2) faculty interview; (3) classroom observation; (4) documentation such as student drop-out rate and grades.
