Re: [MATH for FUN] Re: Calculator Help
- I suggest you to buy an old palm pda for maybe $20-30 and find advance
calculator program for it. There's some advance calc with programming
language and graphics in palm OS. As a bonus, you get an organizer too.
Just googling first and make sure you find the software first before
you buy the pda.
