It's no wonder so many teens and young adults can't do simple math these days. Have you ever run across a person at a checkout counter who couldn't figure out how to count change correctly? I'm sure you have.
Get this......Magee Elementary School in Kettle Moraine, Wisconsin has released its school supply list for fall. You won't believe what's on it--CALCULATORS! You can find it by clicking here: Magee Elementary School Supply List
Students in Kindergarten through fourth grade are required to have simple Texas Instrument Calculators. Fifth graders are required to have a Texas Instrument Scientific Calculator.
When I was in school, students were not allowed to use calculators till they enrolled in Algebra or Trig classes.
What on earth is going on here?
