Although calculators, like any other technology, cannot replace basic understanding and intuitions in mathematics. They can be used effectively as a teaching and learning tool to enhance the development of number sense, to promote mathematical thinking, and engage students in problem solving. As per the article "Calculator use in school mathematics: a Singapore perspective by Koay Phong Lee" (in The Mathematics Educator), "The attainment of the mathematical problem solving ability depends on the attainment of five interrelated components placed along the sides of the pentagonal framework.
