It would be very beneficial for my students to have a set of working calculators. I currently teach a group of 7th graders, many of whom have scored in the Basic or Below Basic on their previous years California Standardized Exam. It is a struggle to teach the necessary standards, when the students allocate so much of their time and energy trying to correctly compute simple operations such as adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. In essence, many of my students do not have access to the content standards because they are devoting so much of their energies on calculations that can just as easily be done on a simple, four function calculator.
