Staples® carries a variety of calculators as a part of our office supplies inventory that meet the needs of most elementary, junior, and high school students.

Functions of a Learning Resources School Calculator
Simple calculators for students provide addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication functions. Five-function calculators add the ability to work out percentages, making them suitable for use on most tests and quizzes. For beginning students, a four-function model helps them gain a better understanding of entering numbers and choosing the correct button for figuring out problems. Models with the square root function help older students deal with more challenging calculations.

There are graphing calculators available that perform additional functions for students in higher grade levels. However, these specialty options aren't always available for use on most tests. In these instances, a basic calculator provides the functions that most students need for determining simple math and some algebraic equations.

Learning Resources School Calculators for Younger Students
A student calculator assists children just starting out in math or working with numbers. The smaller designs are easy to hold and help students become accustomed to the proper ways of entering mathematics equations for solving. Models with brightly colored shells interest kids in the three to five-year range. Calculators with different-colored buttons help students choose the right function when first beginning to recognize common math symbols. Some units feature ergonomic shapes that fit smaller hands for improved comfort during use.

Are Learning Resources School Calculators Sold Individually?
Simple calculators come in single packs for parents who want to purchase a device for a child to use at home or to keep handy in a backpack. Look for packages with up to 10 calculators for a budget-friendly option when providing tools for every student in the class. There are also multipacks available that include a larger calculator paired with a mini one that stores easily in a crayon box or purse.

Can All Students Use a Learning Resources School Calculator?
Most younger students can use a calculator with their teacher's permission. While scientific calculators may be permitted when practicing different math problems, some teachers require students to put them away during normal unit testing. Check with the school requirements and classroom rules for a complete list of when your child is permitted to use a calculator and which type is allowed.

Does a Learning Resources School Calculator Require Batteries?
Some classroom calculators rely on button-style batteries for operation. Most utilize solar energy through a panel on the front of the calculator. Solar-powered calculators require adequate lighting for proper operation. Calculators that use both battery and solar power ensure the device works anywhere. Consider models that rely on the solar panel for charging the batteries for increased lifespan and optimal performance in all conditions.

What Features Are Available on a Learning Resources School Calculator?
A student calculator with an angled view makes reading simple, without picking up the device. There are models with eight-digit readouts that work well for most elementary students. Junior and high school students may require a device that features a 10-digit readout for working with decimals and larger numbers.
