## The Integration Of the Scientific Calculator (CASIO fx-82ES) with Mathematics EducationJiyan WangEast China Normal University China
## AbstractIn
1999 the scientific calculators began to enter mathematics classrooms.
Next year (2000) the scientific calculators were allowed to be taken into
the university entrance examination in the first time. From that time
it has seven years to use the scientific calculators for the mathematics
education and examination and all had good results. Now some high schools
are doing special experiment on the graphics calculators. And after some
years the graphics calculators maybe allowed into the examination. All
of these have brought some thinking: What influence to mathematics teaching?
What influence to students' mathematics abilities? What influence to mathematics
examination? We can get some answers from seven years experience of the
scientific calculators on Shanghai. Almost all teachers and students have
considered the scientific calculators, especially CASIO fx-82ES, is a
useful and valid tool. CASIO fx-82ES has become the powerful assistant
for teachers to teach mathematics and students to learn mathematics and
do mathematics, the tools for students to understand mathematical concepts
and to explore mathematical problems. In many mathematic textbooks, there
are some contents of CASIO fx-82ES. They teach students to do some operations
of numbers, to solve some equations, some inequalities and some statistic
problems. In the important examinations of many places, CASIO fx-82ES
is allowed to solve some problems and to explore some opened questions
for students. In other words, the scientific calculators, especially CASIO
fx-82ES, have been so fond of by more and more students. We believe the
scientific calculators, include CASIO fx-82ES, must be absolutely necessary
assistant in mathematics education. |
