**Calculator/Computer
Philosophy**

The Mathematics Department of Pellissippi State Community
College fully supports the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers
of Mathematics and of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year
Colleges that calculators/computers be integrated into all mathematics
courses for classwork, homework, and testing. The department believes that
all teachers in all courses should promote the use of calculators, where
appropriate, to enhance mathematics instruction in computation, problem
solving, concept development, pattern recognition, data analysis, graphing,
and testing.

The Mathematics Department also believes that there are certain mathematical
skills that students should master with paper and pencil; therefore, some
restrictions may be placed on the use of calculators/computers in specific
courses.

Note: Each course syllabus
should include any statements of calculator/technology requirements and/or
restrictions that are specific to a course.
