I taught 4th grade before becoming a 7th grade math teacher. The district made it a goal that all students would learn their addition and subtraction facts by the end of 2nd grade and their multiplication and division facts by the end of 4th grade. We did timed tests once or twice a week. They were rocking those x and / facts. Well I has two groups of those students again as 7th graders and said, what the heck happened; they know these facts 3 years ago. Point proven to me. My question would be, what is the feel on the use of calculators in grade 7?
