The Calculator that Tests

Coverphotofinal2003 With calculators of all sizes and abilities filtering into math classrooms, why not get one that can interactively test whether kids have mastered their math facts? That’s exactly what FlashMaster does, and at $50 each, they’re an inexpensive technology that most schools can afford. About the size of a portable game machine, the 11-ounce FlashMaster is appropriate for second through sixth grades and can test kids on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Each math problem comes up on the unit’s small screen and kids answer it with keys along the bottom. About the only thing it can’t help with is word problems.
