Abstract

The use of the calculator in primary mathematics is much maligned. The reality is that most teachers do not, in fact, use calculators with their classes because they do not have sufficient knowledge of sensible and suitable activities to engage children. This paper will provide examples of activities with the new TI-15 calculator to shape the way the way children think about and learn mathematics.
