# ITEM: Calculators and Manipulatives

In ITEM: Calculators and Manipulatives, based on the calculators and manipulatives the school district owns, teachers will explore beneficial ways to infuse these technology tools into the math lessons. Teachers will also design a math lesson or a classroom activity using mathematical manipulatives and/or calculators.
