Abstract

With the advance of technology and increasing availability of microcomputers in the primary and secondary classrooms, computer-assisted teaching and learning becomes more viable. Among all school subjects, mathematics has long been perceived to have potential in applying technologies to facilitate teaching and deepen learning. Though previous research findings suggested that computer as a teaching and learning aid would induce a positive effect on students’ learning, most teachers still feel reluctant to incorporate computer into their daily classroom instructions. One of the reasons is that teachers have no idea on how to integrate computer into the mathematics curriculum. In this paper, a demonstration on the use of computer on teaching and learning of probability will be presented. In this demonstration, the computation power and graphing ability of the computer will be used. Copyright © 2000 The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
