Technology certainly has it's benefits in the world of education, but sometimes I wonder how beneficial it is for students to totally depend upon it. Students who cannot function without a calculator are of great concern to me. I strive daily to empower students to believe in their basic ability to add, subtract, multiply and divide without using a calculator. However, graphing and finding solutions to an equation are best performed by the graphing calculator to save time.
