This may seem like a question that educators had put to rest a long time ago. The calculator has become an inextricable part of our pedagogy. However, I am seeing students who do not understand basic arithmetic because they had a calculator put in their hands very early on. So, I would like your feedback: Do you as a K-5 educator see this as a problem? When is it appropriate for a student to transition to doing computation on the calculator?
