I don't know, did people stop learning arithmetic when the calculator was invented? Does nobody play sudoku since a computer can just solve it instantly? Do we not care about good chess players since they can never beat the computer?

I discovered sudoku from the Harvard Python Algorithm Course from YouTube and I play it every so often.

So as you point out, games of mathematical form will always exist

You say this but I do think ut's becoming somewhat of a problem with kids who cant do basic arithmetic.

And those tests may or may not allow calculators depending on the curriculum.
