How I Use It
I used this app as an alternative to a traditional calculator. The students loved it because it allows them to simply write the calculation. It might remind one of using paper and pencil. You do have to be careful when writing math symbols. Since I don't have the neatest writing some of my calculators weren't preformed correctly because of poor penmanship.
My Take
When our 8th grade students received this app during my computer classes I immediately had them download this app. I thought it was a great app for students to preform calculations. The students like this app because they find it easier to use than a traditional calculator.
