Abstract:

Excel assignments were used as extra credit in an intermediate algebra course. Ninety per cent of the students had a home computer and seventy per cent were familiar with Excel. There was not a significant linear correlation between the amount of Excel that the students performed and their achievement in algebra. One-third of the students did less than 50% of the extra credit Excel assignments. The old saying 'You can lead a horse to the water but you cannot make him drink' certainly was true in this study. Many of the students enjoyed the integration of computer software with algebra.
