By JIM LOZERON Herald Staff Writer A BIG sign announces a machine which has become a friend for Grade 3 mathematics students at Fleetwood Bawden Elemen- tary School. And like most friends it helps you out when you are in trouble. to a sign says. On the wall nearby is a big picture of cartoon Fred Flintsone. The machine doesn't move or wave its arms about but within a month it has interested the students who are having problems with their math. Teacher-aide Christine Cur- tis can be spotted sitting next to a student answering his questions and encouraging him in his work with the name attached to the com- puter terminal. Sam. a shy but enthusiastic Grade 3. walked into the staff room and kept his appoint- ment with Mrs. Curtis and the computer terminal. The first question what is your I.D. number and first Sam presses the but- tons but forgets to include his last name. The machine picks it up and repeats the question while Sam sits there anxiously waiting at the controls. 'Hello the computer says. hope you enjoy today's problems. Sam matches his wits with the machine as it sends out a series of addition and subtrac- tion problems. He watches intently as the final message of his first lesson unfolds on the you have answered 17 of 18 questions The paper unfolds and Sam moves on to the next lesson. When he answers correctly another problem is spelled out and when he errs the machine in a matter of seconds tells him he is wrong. He has another chance to solve the problem and if he fails again he moves on to a similar but not identical problem. Surprise niessngv Each day the machine is programmed to send out a new message which deals with an activity or event scheduled for the school. This week one question was you got your Hallowe'en costume ready for tomorrow's The questions catch the students by surprise because they have no idea of the an- nouncement which will come says Mrs. Curtis. For Sam and others like him the machine seems to be providing an enjoyable way of reviewing and drilling math. Bellies bother most men WASHINGTON The size of their hips rather than their breasts worried more women participating in a re- cent while men who answered a questionnaire ex- pressed more concern the size of their bellies than other parts of their bodies. The study was conducted by three social Elaine Walster of the Univer- sity of Wisconsin and Ellen Berscheid and George Bohrnstedt of the University of Minnesota. Based on a sampling of re- sponses from readers of Psychology Today the study found that 36 per cent of the men were unhappy about the size of their abdo- mens while only 15 per cent were concerned about the size of their sexual organs. DO YOU THINK THIS WAY ABOUT Money spent on elabor- ate funerals would be better spent on the living. I don't want anybody to put my body on public display. I want to record my wishes before death so that my next of kin need not make painful decisions under stress I want to support a non- profit group working for dignified and inexpenslce fu- nerals.

While iPmay be too early to assess the results of computer math drill both Mrs. Curtis and principal A. L. Flaig seem happy with what has resulted so far. The computer terminal has been in operation for a lit- tle less than a month. Mrs. Curtis stresses the computer terminal is not a teaching device but is used by up to 27 students daily ex- clusively for drill. She says about 90 students have worked on the machine since it was brought into the school. She says the computer ter- minal has increased student motivation toward math. Lit- tle boys are machine-oriented and were amazed the machine knew their Some of the children have reading difficulties as well. and the written messages coming out of the machine are a challenge to them. Kxci'lvs slmlvnis Mr. Flaig students are quite keen about it. We have had some students who were quite turned off about math who are now quite excited about Mr. Flaig says the program is successful we could have four or five com- puter terminals in the If the computer terminal is successful it will probably be due to a number of features. The. student gets immediate feed-back on his answers. He knows immediately if he has made a mistake and has a se- cond chance to try it again. But the student is not frustrated by having to repeat the exercise more than twice. The third time he is faced with a new question but one which deals with the same concept. Herald- Family At the end of the week the University of Lethbridge com- puter which plugs in the computer forwards progress reports through the terminal on each student. The reports are given to Grade 3 teachers who in co- operation with the teacher aide may increase the difficul- ty of the drills the next time the student meets his big friend. .The computer terminal came to the school with funds provided by the provincial government for the school's community resources utiliza- tion program. The terminal is rented from Alberta Government Telephones and is plugged into the University of Lethbridge computer centre at a cost of a month for storage of the Computer lesson immediate feedback good programs and programming. Funds were made available under the educational oppor- tunities fund which makes grants to elementary schools for special programs which could have a direct and positive influence on teachers and students.
