Hi,
To the poster who said no calculator until Algebra. Why do you think you need a calculator for algebra? NO CALCULATORS. I am a college math professor and to be honest am horrified that calculus students want to use calculators just to multiply 6 by 9.
Stop using this idiot machine called calculators

When I first taught college calculus I thought that at this level the students should be allowed to use a calculator on their exams. Boy was I wrong! They used it to do basic (and I mean basic) calculations. After the first test I no longer allowed calculator. I always am asked at the beginning of he semester why I do not allow students to use calculators. I answer is always the same---This is a math course so you need to use math!
