              Using Calculator Efficiently

              The start of the lesson reviews basic calculator operation using the order of operations and place value to calculate the largest product possible. The development phase builds on this by introducing the squared, square root, brackets and fraction buttons on a scientific calculator.  Students then use the rules of BODMAS to break down the calculations and round their solutions to an appropriate degree of accuracy.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use the fraction and brackets functions on a calculator.
              • Most students should be able to use the fraction, root, power and brackets functions on a calculator.
              • Some students should be able to use any combination of the fraction, root, power and brackets functions on a calculator.
