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
