  1. The Role of Calculators in Math Education - Heidi Pomerantz, Bert Waits for USI/CPMSA
    This PDF article outlines the benefits of calculator use in mathematics classrooms from kindergarten through the university level, describing how calculators, when used appropriately, can be a tool for learning mathematics. The document has six sections: Introduction; "Dispelling the Myths"; "Parents, Calculators, and Kids: What Parents Should Know About the Benefits of Calculator Use"; "Calculators: Elementary School Teachers' Concerns"; "Graphing Calculators: Issues Affecting Secondary School Teachers and University Professors"; and References. more>>

  2. Selected Internet Calculator Resources - Math Forum
    Selected Internet resources for integrating calculators into the math classroom, one of the Math Forum's series of pages dealing with issues in math education. curricular resources (articles, courses, textbooks); graphing calculator resources; online lessons and problems; other sites of interest; and WWW calculators. more>>

  3. Technology in the IMP Classroom - Alper, Fendel, Fraser, Resek
    The Interactive Mathematics Program (IMP) has developed a new four-year high school curriculum which is organized around units lasting from 5 to 8 weeks. Each unit centers on a rich problem, and students develop new concepts and skills by solving that central problem. Graphing calculators play an important role in the IMP curriculum, involving simulations, curve-fitting, operations with matrices, and programming. Examples of the use of calculators in the curriculum and guiding principles for their use are given in these papers. more>>
