From: TMack <tlmack04@yahoo.com> To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2007022612:08:54 Subject: What do I do I have read all of the responses to the inquiries about how calculators should be utilized in the math classroom; however I am at a lost. I am a new teacher taking over several high school classes midyear. Approximately 45% of my class cannot even complete simple arithmetic which is keeping them from solving simple one step equations. I cannot fail all of these students even though they deserve a failing grade. Does anyone have any ideas on how can I use these calculators,(TI 83or 84) as a crutch for these students to at least superficially pass?
