IBM 1620 (Computer); Universities and colleges--Computer network resources


There are two primary sources of computer activity among Carleton students: course work and independent study. In many instances we have found that not only has the student learned something about programming and the use of computers from one of these activities, but also a great deal about the subject matter that motivated the computing. In this respect, the computer is an excellent pedagogic device.

In the following outline of our student computer work, I have merely named the computer problems originating in courses but have described more fully some of the work arising from independent study. The 1620 Users Group Library file number is given for those programs that are in the library.
