 Summary
 The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of the graphing calculator on overall student achievement and student attitude toward mathematics in college algebra. Gender and agerelated differences in student achievement and attitude were also investigated. Furthermore, student decisions concerning when the graphing calculator is used in answering college algebra questions were also examined. The participants were 175 students enrolled in nine sections of college algebra offered during the 199596 academic year at a midwestern fouryear, opendoor state college. Four college algebra sections were taught by the experimenter and five sections were taught by another fulltime faculty member. Each instructor taught at least one scientific calculator section and one graphing calculator section each semester. All groups completed a Mathematics Attitude Scale on the first and last days of class, and were given a comprehensive final examination at the end of the semester. In order to determine student decisions concerning when the graphing calculator is used to answer algebra questions, miniexaminations were given to students exemplifying the subpopulations in questions. The results of this research study suggest that the integration of the graphing calculator into the college algebra curriculum will improve student achievement for nontraditional students; may improve student achievement for other students, depending on the instructor; and will improve student attitude toward mathematics for all students. Furthermore, the study suggests that while all students tend to rely on the graphing calculator when working less technical problems pertaining to the characteristics and graphs of functions and equations, female and nontraditional students tend to integrate the graphing calculator approach with the paperandpencil techniques when working more detailed problems of this type
