math

Some people believe that calculators have eliminated the need to learn the skills required to perform mathematical operations by hand. State your position on this belief, and then support your position with real-life stories or examples

I will be happy to critique your thinking on this. I admit, come calculator calculations go beyond what is needed to do in one's head. When I was a teen I memorized log tables so I could do log calcs in my head. That is no longer needed, a calc can do .054^23 so much easier than that method. Trig calcs are much easier also. I memorized many trig values also.
