seeking info: secondary majors computing requirements
Posted:
Nov 6, 1996 1:16 PM


Greetings!
This message is for AMTE'ers who are involved with preservice secondary mathematics teacher prep.
Our mathematics dept is discussing the current requirement of a onesemester computer science course for its secondary mathematics education majors (degree earned in mathematics dept). The current options include (1) Intro to Fortran (2) Scientific PASCAL (both from the mathematics dept)
(3) either of (1) or (2) from comp sci dept (4) Structured Problem Solving Using the Computer (no language listed; comp sci dept).
I'm interested in hearing from others in a similar situation regarding what, if any, computing or computer science is required of secondary majors. Feel free to reply directly to me rather than the list, if you prefer. Thanks for your input!
