ab: How can calculators be used in infant grades? What long-term effect will
calculators have on children’s learning of number concepts? These
were two of the questions addressed by the Calculators in Primary
Mathematics project, a four year research project carried out in six
Melbourne schools. This paper summarises the positive findings related
to children’s learning and relates these to the types of classroom
activities devised by project teachers. No detrimental effects were
found. (Abstract)
