We don't recommend using a calculator for the Mathematics placement test or Fact Fluency. For lessons, most students should not use a calculator because our curriculum starts with simple sub-skills, and a calculator would interfere with a student learning those sub-skills. However, the teacher is the best person to evaluate whether a calculator is helpful for a student on a particular lesson or assessment.
