As a high school math teacher, I would beg you not to get your elementary
students entrenched in the idea of using a calculator.  Make them memorize their
basic math facts.

I constantly struggle with Algebra and Geometry students who literally cannot
divide 30 in half without a calculator.  This deficit keeps students from being
able to think about Algebra; they must spend too much energy on the arithmetic
and then have nothing left for the topic at hand.

Just a thought.
