In this computer science activity about finite-state automaton (on page 45 of the PDF), learners use a map and choose various pathways to find Treasure Island. They learn that different pathways will lead them to dead-ends, continuous circles, or to their goal. This activity includes a simpler demonstration activity and one whole class activity. Background information about finite-state automaton and computer programming is included. Less

This activity aims to stimulate discussion on the question of whether computers can exhibit Ňintelligence" or are ever likely to do so in the future. Learners play a game and try to distinguish between a human and a computer by asking questions and analyzing the answers. This game is similar to the Turing Test, founded by British mathematician Alan Turing. Variations, extensions, background information and further reading suggestions are included in the PDF. Less

This course is all about understanding: understanding what's going on inside your computer when you flip on the switch, why tech support has you constantly rebooting your computer, how everything you do on the Internet can be watched by others, and how your computer can become infected with a worm just by turning it on. In this course we demystify computers and the Internet, along with their jargon, so that students understand not only what they can do with each but also how it all works and why. Students leave this course armed with a new vocabulary and equipped for further exploration of computers and the Internet. Topics include hardware, software, the Internet, multimedia, security, website development, programming, and dotcoms. This course is designed both for those with little, if any, computer experience and for those who use a computer every day. Less

This course is designed to provide an introductory level of understanding of the manner in which individuals interact with one another via the network. Possession of this understanding is absolutely critical to your ability to design effective learning environments on the network. This course takes an immersion approach to helping you develop your understanding by requiring you to make extensive, reflective use of several representative interactive media. You will also read several representative pieces of writing in each area. Less

In the Indiana University system, as well as many other schools, finite mathematics is a prerequisite for most majors, especially business, public administration, social sciences, and some life science areas. Statisticians Moore, Peck, and Rossman (2002) articulate a set of goals for mathematics prerequisites: including instilling an appreciation of the power of technology and developing skills necessary to use appropriate technology to solve problems, developing understanding, and exploring concepts. The paper describes the use of Excel spreadsheets in the teaching and learning of finite mathematics concepts in the linked courses Mathematics in Action: Social and Industrial Problems and Introduction to Computing taught for business, liberal arts, science, nursing, education, and public administration students. The goal of the linked courses is to encourage an appreciation of mathematics and promote writing as students see an immediate use for it in completing actual real-world projects. The courses emphasize learning and writing about mathematics and the practice of computer technology applications through completion of actual industrial group projects. Through demonstration of mathematical concepts using Excel spreadsheet, we stress synergies between mathematics, technology, and real-world applications. These synergies emphasize the learning goals such as quantitative skill development, analytical and critical thinking, information technology and technological issues, innovative and creative reasoning, and writing across the curriculum.
