A6 SUNDAY, MAY 17, 1998 GREAT PLAINS THE SALINA JOURNAL T MATH EDUCATION Does technology add up in class? State educators debate effects of calculator use in school math courses By CAROLCRUPPER Harris News Service For some members of the state school board, calculators don't compute. "I find it distressing to have fourth graders using calculators," said Linda Holloway, a board member from Shawnee. She doesn't like seventh graders using them either. She worries that they keep students from mastering basic math facts. Mary Douglass Brown, a Wichita board member, agreed. "I want them to know what they need to know without a mechanical prop," she said. But a committee of math educa- tors thinks calculators serve a purpose and believes the state should continue to allow their use. Margie Hill, who coordinates math curriculum for the Blue Valley school district, leads a 25-member panel working to revamp the state's math curriculum and standards. She was in Topeka this week to walk the state board of education through the latest revision. The proposal sets what Kansas expects students to know at various stages of development. It outlines what will be tested on a statewide basis. It doesn't say what books to use or how to teach the material. That is left up to individual districts and teachers. The proposal represents compromise, and one of those centered on calculator use. Lisa Colwell, a math teacher at GRADUATES Hays High School who served on the committee, thinks math education should fit life. In Hays, students are exposed to calculators as early as kindergarten and first grade where youngsters might use them in figuring very large numbers. Students need to learn the basics, Colwell said. But as they move into applying those-facts to real life problems, calculators come in handy. A student should know 6 times 8, she said, but would want a calculator to figure the cube root of 3,685. Calculators can't exist in a vacuum, she said. "You have to know what to put in them. If you don't know what a vertical angle is, a calculator won't help you." In high schools today, Colwell said, 90 to 95 percent of the time their use is unrestricted. More brakes are applied in elementary schools. Colwell said teachers have been fairly pleased with basic knowledge students display coming into Hays High. There is a concern, Colwell said, that youngsters don't have the manipulative skills they used to have. On the other hand, the real world offers an array of technical tools. School districts and teachers try to strike the balance. Kansas is trying to do the same. The final vote, in June, rests with the State Board of Education. Our government has admitted that POWs were left Vietnam. Evidence continues to mount ill be alive. We're on the annual America DON'T FORGET!
