Abstract:

CARPS Calculus Rate Problem Solver is a program written to solve calculus word problems, but is restricted to rate problems. The overall plan of the program is similar to Bobrows STUDENT, the primary difference being the introduction of structures as the internal model in CARPS. Structures are stored internally as trees. Each structure is designed to hold the information gathered about one object. A description of CARPS is given by working through two problems, one in great detail. Also included is a critical analysis of STUDENT. Author
