Illinois - calculators - I can not remember if it is for 1 or all, but I remember them using them last year!
I have many kids who come to me (5th) who do not know their mult. facts. Within the curriculum, they are required to already know them! We make mult fact cards, I provide them many sites to practice on, we take tests weekly. I believe they HAVE to know them, but... not everyone agrees and it is something I add in because it is something I feel is important. I still have kids who have a hard time with them and then the division process. Hopefully, in learning the process, soon enough they will be able to use a calculator for a quick check or not at all.
