Date: Mar 15, 1995 10:50 PM Author: MAXINE BRIDGER Subject: calculators and order of op I'd like to get back to the calculator discussion. Simple 4-function

calculators like those used K-6 often do NOT follow order of

operations--scientific calculators do. Is this confusing for students?

(Try 5+6*2. Is this (5+6)*2 on your calculator or the correct 5+(6*2)?)
