    What Have Calculators Done to Us??

    Okay so, I have a lab practical exam tomorrow and we have to do a lot of math, namely multiplication and long division. The horrible thing is, we can't use calculators.

    At the time I was like "Okay, whatever" but tonight I realized I've completely forgotten how to do math by hand. How the hell do you do long division? I completely forgot about adding zeros when doing long multiplication. And oh god, decimals! Decimals everywhere!

    My point is, are calculators making us dumber? Should schools encourage teachers to use calculators less and have kids actually learn the stuff?

    Please don't call me dumb, guys

    Re: What Have Calculators Done to Us??

    I've used a Ti-84 calculator since Freshman year of HS.. and without it I can still do math, even if it's harder. Just use scrap paper and do it by hand..if you know basic addition/multiplication/subtraction/division, you're good.

    @Pumpkin, I don't think she approves of such peasants.

    I'm practicing now with videos on youtube. It's just so hard! Especially with fractions and stuff. I literally have to relearn all the basics just to try and build from there

    Solution is next time whenever the equation is possible use mental math.

    I speak the truth but I guess
    that's just a foreign language
    to y'all.

    You better pray you never have to take a class like calculus, not even a calculator can save you then..

    I'm glad I never had to take college math (got two years of credits from test scores) I don't think I could have done it

    I'm sure she likes funny guys. Obviously, you fall short in this category. In fact, you fall short in everything you do.
