Efficient Calculator Apps

I've been thinking. There are so many easy calculator apps. I've been thinking, maybe if I use one all my finances would be easier to control. Not only is ease of use important, the look of the calculator is important too. Do I want it masculine, feminine, colorful or cute.

Use to be, we needed to take a calculator to math class. We still do but the calculator is already in the smartphone. One less thing to carry to class. The features and functions we can find in an app are amazing. Sin, cosine, square root, angles and pi.

The calculator's screen can be small like the smartphone or as large as a touch screen tablet. The size has helped students with physical needs. The most unique app I have found is called Sums. Instead of targeting the plus, minus and other symbols. This is one slash to the right for addition, one slash to the left for subtraction.

A recently realized gem for the physically disabled is the use of the abacus. For some one with a good visual memory, the abacus is the perfect calculator. Think about it... Once the abacus and the movement of the beads are well established as muscle memory of the brain. Anyone would be able to add, subtract, multiple and divide independently. In education you have to find what works for the child not what works for the staff.

Sums gesture controlled calculator

5 STARS out of 5

One different calculator app. Input the numbers you want to calculate but instead of finding and tapping on the symbol for add, subtract, multiply or divide. All you have to do is swipe in the direction of the operation.

Swipe up for equal - swipe down to clear.

With the free version you get the 4 basic operations, equal and clear. Memory and scientific functions are on the paid version.

More fine motor control for the students in my class included ataxia.

Komodo Abacus Math Program
By Trovare Inc.
3 STARS out of 5

There is a math problem under the abacus. You can select addition, subtraction and other operations. I'm trying to learn the abacus and I showed it to a student. She was intrigued and I think she would be able to use the abacus. Once the abacus is memorized she would be able to the math problems and give the answer to the writer. She has no functional hand use. This would be great for her.

I was amazed at how simple it is to use. I get the addition problems correct but I can't believe that counting gets the answer I need.
