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!

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 ****.

We write 37708
when you turn it upside down, it looks like "Bolle" which means "to ****"

NonCalculator exams...
And at my school they didn't provided calculators, you had to bring your own or you just didn't get one.

I feel as if I'm the only person in a first world country, living in a middle class home who doesn't have a cell phone.

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.

Middle class means above average income
That's exactly what it means

Damn teachers should have taught us the 35 times table and the 17 times table in primary 4!!! Would have totally succeeded more in life "/

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 0100 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]

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 ********!

I won't be calculating calculations that would require a device with calculating feature from places I don't have access to such devices
