Problem Solving with Calculators
Billings and Moursund
Submitter: We came across this title while weeding our collection, and it obviously needed to go. Out of date language, not to mention the “calculators vs. computers” chapter! I just checked Worldcat, and there are 70 other holding libraries – really???
Holly: My niece is in tenth grade, and asked if we had a graphing calculator she could borrow for her math class. My husband has several from his high school and college days (which takes us back to the early 1990s…). As it turns out, she gave it back because it was too old to do whatever they needed to do for class. This was an expensive calculator in the 1990s, but worthless twenty years later. Imagine how worthless this book is 34 years after it was published.
