I, for one, am glad that we weren't allowed to use calculators in elementary school.
It's a lot more practical to just use my head if I need to solve everyday problems on the fly.

Yeah! **** times tables! It's so much easier to pull out your phone, unlock it, open the calculator app, and then enter the numbers than it is to do it in your head!

That's because you didn't pay enough attention in 4th grade.

Yeah! **** calculator apps! I much rather find the square root of 7,641 manually on a piece of paper!

I always carry my calculator to my school (when or when I do not have math) because it's important for my course, calculating and transforming units and ****.

Actually, we write 351837 because when you flip it looks like "Jebi se" and "jebi se" means **** you on Croatian.

Point being, was the teacher saying he wouldn't carry around a calculator in everyday life. When in fact he will be carrying around a calculator in everyday life.

Haha, how does that make him trashy? It could at the most just mean that he is poor. So then that would make you trashy for thumbing him down for being poor. Trash.

He said that he is middle class, unless the definition of middle class has changed to "below the poverty line," I don't think that he's poor.

Haha yes, because all middle class families can afford a cell phone plan... just because you don't live below the poverty line, doesn't mean you can afford it.

>4th grade math teacher
Why would you need a calculator for basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division? Seriously, we didn't even need calculators in 4th grade.

Just today I had a conversation with a friend who studies chemical engineering, he's a demonstrator there (an older student who helps the younger ones with their studies). He said that the freshmen don't even know how to calculate simple numbers in the range of 0-100 without using the calculator, he asked a guy to multiply 133 and 100... the guy gave all answers except the correct one. These generations are headed down the drain if you ask me

This happens a lot. My problem is when doing a load of equations and thus many calculations, I will program all the exponential or cubic roots in. (Chemist anon here, some roots get crazy). Then I will type in something like 5+2, a stupid sum I should have done but just using the calculator so much i forget to put it down. I estimate it all now to kee maths brain working

Well, the world is going to need people working as waiters, cashiers and that guy/girl, you know, putting stuff in shelves and making everything all dainty and nice for those that did something about the opportunities they had to actually become something that they wanted to be.

Unless people actually want to be waiters and cashiers and stackers.[small][small]

You're the worst kind of person to imply that just everyone in the fifties could just do multiplication on the fly. It's probably that you were only born in the current millennium, but people have always as a whole been pretty ******* stupid.

Last year's teacher: Now everybody buy these $130 graphing calculators, you'll all need them the rest of the time you're in school.

This year's teachers: Graphing calculators aren't allowed, if you use one you'll be considered to be cheating and possibly expelled.

It's ********!

At school I actually always have my calculator in my left blazer pocket. Never know when it might come in handy, like if somebody tried to snipe my left hip then the calculator would take the bullet (mostly).
