Calculators for Schools


Over the last few years we have worked closely  with schools and students to develop new classroom aids to assist with the teaching of basic calculator skills to primary school children. The ‘Calculators for Schools’ range was conceived and software to assist with ‘whole class’ teaching via the interactive white board was developed.

In the UK the ‘Calculators for Schools’ range has been very well received and has proved to be a useful, effective and extremely cost effective teaching aid.

The revised ‘Primary Framework for Literacy and Mathematics’ recommends that the teaching of calculator skills should commence in Years 3 and 4 and continue through to the assessment at the end of Key Stage 2.

Aurora’s new range of School Class Kits are an ideal aid for teaching the required calculator skills to primary school children.

A class kit consists of 30 calculators designed for KS1 & KS2, a robust Gratnell’s® storage tray, a lid and a foam insert. The foam insert acts as
a secure holder, keeping the calculators safe and enabling quick and easy distribution during lesson time and stock checking afterwards.

In addition the CK30, CK12 and class kits now include a free emulator.

This CD-ROM software when combined with an interactive whiteboard and projector will beam a large working replica of the calculator onto the whiteboard.

This giant working calculator is viewable to the whole class and it is also identical to the calculators being used by the students.
The whiteboard calculator makes it much easier to demonstrate a calculation and equally makes it much easier for the students to follow the keystrokes and calculation chain. The emulators provide a great solution
for introducing calculators to Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils.

They are simple to operate and easy to use and have been designed to integrate into an existing lesson plan with minimal fuss providing the teacher with a practical and fun solution.

Also included on the CD in a printable format are test and answer sheets naming the functions performed by each key
