Only in a 2008 classroom

Yesterday, my kids drew a profile of the ocean floor. They used sonar readings and had to do some multiplication to find the depths of about 20 different points. I told the kids that if they had their own calculators to bring them because I didn't have enough for everyone.

I can't tell you how many kids asked me, "Can we use our cell phones?"

We are in a different generation :)

By the way, they couldn't use their cell phones because it's a school rule that cell phones stay locked in their locker.

I know. It is so crazy! I use my cell all the time to multiply and add. It is pretty handy!

I agree that it's crazy that sooo many kids have cell phones now! I do love to use my calculator on my phone, too. :)
