I, for one, am glad that we weren't allowed to use calculators in elementary school.
It's a lot more practical to just use my head if I need to solve everyday problems on the fly.

Yeah! **** times tables! It's so much easier to pull out your phone, unlock it, open the calculator app, and then enter the numbers than it is to do it in your head!

I feel as if I'm the only person in a first world country, living in a middle class home who doesn't have a cell phone.

He said that he is middle class, unless the definition of middle class has changed to "below the poverty line," I don't think that he's poor.

>4th grade math teacher
Why would you need a calculator for basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division? Seriously, we didn't even need calculators in 4th grade.

Just today I had a conversation with a friend who studies chemical engineering, he's a demonstrator there (an older student who helps the younger ones with their studies). He said that the freshmen don't even know how to calculate simple numbers in the range of 0100 without using the calculator, he asked a guy to multiply 133 and 100... the guy gave all answers except the correct one. These generations are headed down the drain if you ask me

Last year's teacher: Now everybody buy these $130 graphing calculators, you'll all need them the rest of the time you're in school.
This year's teachers: Graphing calculators aren't allowed, if you use one you'll be considered to be cheating and possibly expelled.
It's ******** !
