Thomas Jefferson High School students are gaining an understanding of the structure of number can be enhanced by the exploration of patterns, sequences and relationships with a calculator. Basic curriculum includes instruction in reading, phonics, language arts, spelling, mathematics, science, and social studies. In addition, children attend physical education, art, and music classes. It is the department's philosophy that each individual area, while comprehensive and challenging, supports the foundations of knowledge found in all three areas. Calculators help in the development of problem-solving skills by allowing the child to focus on the structure of a problem and possible means of solution. Calculators can be used to check estimates, to perform long and complex computations, and to provide exact results to difficult problems. The student needs a sound understanding of number to make judgments about when it is appropriate to estimate, to calculate mentally, to make a calculation on paper, or to use a calculator for an exact result.
