When Memory Fails.
Cuoco, Al; Manes, Michelle
Mathematics Teacher, v94 n6 p489-93 Sep 2001
Presents two examples of using the limitations of calculators to help students understand important mathematical ideas. The first example shows how a simple algebraic calculation can make a recursive model work long enough to perform the job at hand while the second shows how the limitations of a calculator can be used to introduce the need for mathematical proof.
