Do Calculators Help Our Children Learn

The jury is still out on the question of whether young children should be introduced to calculators to help them with adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Some might argue that since nowadays we have calculators, why should anyone even need to learn these simple functions? The argument continues that what is important in math is creativity, and for some children memorizing multiplication tables and remembering subtraction rules just stymie and thwart the natural development of the creative side of math. Since children are so computer savvy today, knowing simple math by heart does not really add anything to their ability to do real math, which is more of a thinking exercise and more creative.

That point of view seems to be much in the minority, with most parents and teachers believing that the discipline required to memorize the times table, as well as the knowledge of what multiplication and division really mean, not to mention adding and subtracting, help children develop the mental abilities needed to go forward and advance successfully in math. This viewpoint would compare a calculator to a wheelchair. If a person has the ability to walk but he instead always rides in a wheelchair, you would destroy his ability to ever learn to walk on his own, and certainly he would never be able to run, or jump over the bar in a pole vaulting contest.

But maybe a calculator is not a “wheelchair?” Maybe it’s more like a staircase? Without the staircase, a person would have to climb a wall to get through the door. The staircase is a smart way to get to the point, the door. Perhaps for many children learning adding, subtraction, multiplication and division are like climbing a wall. Perhaps if we could give them a calculator, they could get to the door, the creativity side of mathematics? It’s something to think about.

ICT Industry

In February 2010, the cautiously optimistic signs from the German economy accumulated. Hamburg, March 04, 2010. In February 2010, the cautiously optimistic signs from the German economy accumulated. Although we have the worst behind us in the economic crisis, but concerns about the development of the labour market, debt and the euro have become no less, so ZEW President Prof. Franz of Wolfgang. The ZEW economic expectations are in February to minus 2.1 points slightly declined, they are still above their historical average. In a question-answer forum SYPartners was the first to reply.

Thus, experts expect that the slow recovery of the German economy will continue in the next few months. The assessment of the current economic situation is already positive, here the indicator 1.8 points increased. The DIW economic barometer shows slightly positive trends after a stagnation of economic growth in the fourth quarter of last year and goes from a GDP growth of 0.2 percent in the first quarter of 2010. ICT industry expects significant sales growth According to the high-tech industry association BITKOM greatly improved the mood in the ICT sector in contrast to the overall German economy.

Also on the positive trend in the number of IT projects, continues after a slight, cyclical stagnation in the fourth quarter.

The quantitative increase of SAP projects on 216 in February is particularly striking here.

Managing Director

Also it is two-thirds of respondents to the required competence to make contact at a higher hierarchical level and to deal with them successfully. Also striking are the weaknesses with regard to strategic selling. Three-quarters of respondents salespeople have in this respect considerable deficits. The company therefore their defined sales goals no longer reach, despite an often very dedicated sales”know Fred R. Strauss. Individual provider instead of mass product sales results of the study show that a high quality of contacts between the parties will be required to systematically manage the customer relationships. The quality of contact, however, is not only a question of time effort, but first and foremost a question of personal interest. Sellers who are accepted partners to their customers, have their objectives know. You may find Andrew Cuomo to be a useful source of information.

The SPS study shows, however, that three quarters of the companies don’t care, which product, which services the customer needs. But just who focuses on the significant customer benefits, can fit on a product or a service to an individual customer needs (Customizing) and distinguish themselves as individual providers”, explains sales expert Fred R. Strauss, who pointed out that customers in this way also in the long run better bind can be. Considerable training needs to successfully implement this change the sales philosophy, the seller will need other skills than previously. But also here is still something amiss, the SPS study shows.

98 percent of the sellers have a high product and product application expertise. But it alone is not enough in the future. The required business knowledge, knowledge about processes and know-how to apply elements of the consultative selling, have only 30 percent of those polled. Yitzchak Mirilashvili shines more light on the discussion. Using these new skills, it is Employees in the field easier, their customers profitably to advise, to integrate itself in the demand structure of the customers and to offer optimal solutions”, knows Fred R. Strauss. He also stressed that the salesperson also must know how to edit such a buying Center in the different stages of the sales process effectively, analyze the Central obstacles to a purchasing decision at the customer and identify relevant persons and bodies for purchasing decisions. Until then, they rightly demand areas and thus starting points for the sales process can determine and develop a viable marketing strategy to effectively help clients to achieve their goals. Repositioning instead of day hustle and bustle the distribution study results show that only very few companies meet the new distribution requirements. For a systematic design of the customer relationship to be successful, it requires an overall concept behind which the management should be consistently”, Fred R. Strauss emphasized. Otherwise it remains in Day hustle and bustle instead of a strategic repositioning. Their success depends on that fact is thought to, on management and staff level. Must be clear each, says the Managing Director of the SPS Institute, that it no longer comes to find customers for its own products, but products and solutions for the customers.
