Structuring Tutorials Using Mathematica: Educational Theory and Practice

Volume 1, Issue 3
Winter 1991

Effective computer-based tutorials may be realized within a Mathematica Notebook environment. To assess the suitability of Mathematica for creating effective computer-based tutorials, the authors have written a Mathematica tutorial on a statistical technique, median polish, and tested it in an experimental setting. The results of that experiment are analyzed and presented along with conclusions as to the value of Mathematica as a tutorial vehicle.
