A Survey of Attitudes on the Use of Calculators in the College Classroom.
Bukowski, Joseph E.
This study focused on faculty and student attitudes toward the use of calculators in college accounting and business mathematics courses. Two different surveys were used; one was administered to thirty-five full-time and part-time faculty in the accounting and business mathematics areas at one college, while a second survey was administered to a random sample of 244 students. Responses from both the faculty and students indicated fairly consistent attitudes. A seemingly larger portion of students felt that calculators should be allowed unconditionally, while the faculty appeared to have some reservations on the use of calculators especially in classes of business mathematics.
