Hi Megan,

I know that there has been a lot of discussion about this. I thought perhaps
I could find some sites for you on the Internet that archived those discussions.
This is what I've found so far:

Education World: Curriculum: Educators Battle Over Calculator Use: Both
Sides Claim Casualties

College Board (their policy of use on tests)

T2T Archive: Calculator Use

NCTM: Calculator Use in the News--Lee Stiff Responds to WSJ

Groping and Hoping for a Consensus on Calculator Use
http://www.nctm.org/dialogues/1999-05.pdf  [PDF]

I hope these resources are helpful.
