STEM Everyday #60: Calculators

The tools kids use in the classroom have sure changed over the years.  Phones once relied on a land line, you picked up the receiver and an operator connected your phone call.  Now we have added smart to the name and they will connect you from almost anywhere.  However, smartphones and tablets can be a great tool to use in the classroom.  But with so many apps out there where do you start.  When it comes to calculators choosing from the hundred or so apps for your device can seem like a daunting task.  Then think about how many different apps you could have in one class being used and the confusion that could cause.  Chris tackles this thought sharing how he and his fellow teachers made the decision of how to approach this.
