The Effect the Use of Desk Calculators Has on Attitude and Achievement in Ninth-Grade General Mathematics Classes.
Cech, Joseph Philip
An experiment was designed to test whether or not the use of desk calculators improved the attitudes and computational skills of low achieving, ninth-grade general mathematics students. Analysis of the data did not support the hypothesis that the use of calculators would improve students' attitudes toward mathematics. The hypothesis that the use of calculators would improve students' computational skills was also not supported. The hypothesis that low achievers in mathematics can compute better with calculators than without them was accepted. (FL)
