My article on FirstNews¬†is called ‘Calculators to be banned from maths tests!’¬† This article is about maths tests being banned at the key stage 2 maths tests, (SATs). This is going to start in 2014. Some teachers disagree with this idea claiming working without calculators will put people off in maths whereas the other side of the arguement is that some children rely on the calculators and that they are not confident with ‘addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.’

Amazing, outstanding fact….

Some schools allow children as young as seven to use them!
