Some of the computations you'll need to perform to answer a question on the Elementary Education: Mathematics and Science CKT tests are somewhat time-consuming, such as long division or finding square roots. For such computations, you can use the calculator provided with your test.
Although the calculator can shorten the time it takes to perform some computations, keep in mind that the calculator provides results that supplement, but don’t replace, your knowledge of mathematics. You’ll need to use your mathematical knowledge to determine whether the calculator's results are reasonable and how the results can be used to answer a question.
For more information, including examples of computations using the calculator, download Guidelines Specific to the On-Screen 4-Function Calculator (PDF).
