7 "U.S. fourth graders use calculators and computers in mathematics class more frequently than do students in most other TIMSS countries. Use of calculators in U.S. fourth-grade mathematics classes is about twice the international averageā€¦. In six of the seven nations that outscore the U.S. in mathematics, teachers of 85 percent or more of the students report that students never [or hardly ever] use calculators in class."

9 As the Notices of the American Mathematical Society state, standard algorithms "are more than just 'ways to get the answer'-that is, they have theoretical as well as practical significance. For one thing, all the algorithms of arithmetic are preparatory for algebra.... The division algorithm is also significant for later understanding of real numbers."
