This book explores the impact of calculators on mathematics instruction in grades K-14. The authors examine underlying theoretical and research information which supports the use of calculators in the mathematics classroom. Chapters examine general issues related to calculator use. Successful calculator projects, while further discussing direction for the future utilization of calculators in mathematics. Many authors contributed articles to this original work, focusing on the benefits of calculators. Authors included are: George W. Bright, Hersholt C. Waxman, Susan E. Williams, Thomas A Romberg, Jane F. Schielack, Clarence J. Dockweiler, Gary C. Bitter, Mary M. Hatfield, Juanita V. Copley, Shwu-Yong L. Huang, Paul A. Kennedy, Bert K. Waits, Franklin Demana, Donald R. LaTorre, and John G. Harvey.
