What do you think about that?This seems very interesting. what I have seen is that most of the children of our time does not know about the basic rules about adding subtracting etc. I am very big fan of technology but this is not the god use of technology. Calculators though is not as fresh but still use of such devices in this age harming their capability of learning. What I want to discuss here is the children should no be allowed to use calculator in early ages they must know the basic rules of math.

I thought that too. But my son (at age 6) showed me another way of looking at it. We had bought him a four function calculator as he was good at basic +  x and ÷ You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #4 20130110 03:28:46
Re: What do you think about that?Hi;
I think you will find in most cases that those same children can not use a calculator either. They have not replaced arithmetic, they have dropped it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
