Is it reasonable for a 7th grader to use a calculator for math?

    It depends on the math culture of the school and the family.

    I have not used a calculator until after university, ... and survived.

    Even today some professors prohibit the use of calculators in examinations of certain university math courses such as discrete math and combinatorics.

    So, as I said, it is discretionary, but I personally do not think it is necessary for a seven grader to use a calculator. I am not in a position to judge if it is reasonable.

    I always thought it was funny how when your younger, they prohibit the use of calculators, only to make it so when you get into Algebra 2 and higher, you HAVE to have a calculator. Aha, just think that's amusing.

    yeah in some cases if you really truley need it,like maybe if your dealing with decimals

    Well, I guess you should know how to do basic math (as in preschool through sixth grade math) without a calculator, but they're useful to have when multiplying by pi, finding square routes, messing with decimals, etc.
    Personally, when I go to college, I'm going to tote a calculator around wherever I go!

    no. in the 7th grade a student, depending on the state, should be learning the basics of algebra. calculator is of no use

    If you are in Florida, 7th grade is the first grade where you are REQUIRED to have a multifunction calculator, according to the state curriculum. It is important to note that there are parts of the FCAT where you cannot use a calculator so basic skills need to continue to be practiced.
