Problem Solving: Opening the Door Using the Mini-Calculator. Problem Solving Project.

Five different ways are outlined in which calculators can be used to develop a student's ability: (1) to solve problems which use real-world data; (2) for solving a greater number of standard word problems; (3) for using different approaches to solve problems; (4) for extending problem situations; and (5) for using the calculator in an experimental setting. Each section presents problems which exemplify these five uses of the calculator. (MP)
