Calculators in Mathematics - How Should They Be Used.
Schoen, Harold L.
This paper was presented at the 1979 meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in San Francisco. It describes specific examples of calculator-aided mathematics learning activities for children in grades 2-6. These examples illustrate a variety of topics and types of learning which can be enhanced by a range of capabilities of a four-function calculator. Activity sheets and explanations of their uses are included. The activities are categorized by their instructional goals, and are designed to teach counting and numeration, basic facts, some selected number concepts, estimation, and problem solving. A discussion of the role of the calculator in mathematics learning as illustrated by the sample activities is also presented. (HM)
