The Johns Hopkins University Center for Research on Elementary and Middle Schools is seeking schools to participate in five studies over the next three years on the instructional uses of computers.

During the 1987-88 school year, the first project will examine the use of computers for mathematics instruction in 40 schools, focusing on fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and proportions, estimation, and measurement. Future studies, which will also involve 40 schools each, will focus on the use of computers to teach writing, earth science, and two subject areas yet to be selected.
