  10. 10. It’s Use in education  In most countries, students use calculators for schoolwork.  There was some initial resistance to the idea out of fear that basic arithmetic skills would suffer.  There remains disagreement about the importance of the ability to perform calculations "in the head", with some curricula restricting calculator use until a certain level of proficiency has been obtained, while others concentrate more on teaching estimation techniques and problem- solving.  Research suggests that inadequate guidance in the use of calculating tools can restrict the kind of mathematical thinking that students engage in.

  15. 15. Abacus  The first calculator  Today it is still debated whether the Babylonians or the Chinese invented it.  Used before written numeral system invented.  Constructed from a wooden frame with beads sliding on wires.  Still used by some merchants, fishermen and clerks in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. July 28, 201315
  16. 16. c1600 - Napier's bones  An abacus created by John Napier for calculation.  Invented in 1614.  Used for multiplication and division.  "Napier's bones" invented by John Napier for multiplication, based on the ancient numerical scheme known as the Arabian lattice. July 28, 201316
  17. 17. 1622 - Slide rule. July 28, 201317 William Gunter developed a logarithmic rule for multiplication and division using dividers, which was the forerunner of the slide rule. Invented in 1622 by William Oughtred. Allows multiplication and division operations to be carried out significantly faster. People who sent the space shuttle Apollo to the moon used the slide rule for their calculations which was in 1961.
  18. 18. 1623 Calculating Clock  Invented in 1623 by Wihelm Schickard.  Known as the first mechanical calculator.  The calculator was made from cogs and gears which were normally used for clocks.  It was the size of a typewriter.  It could add, subtract, multiply, and divide to up to six-digit numbers. July 28, 201318
  19. 19. 1642 - the Pascaline o Capable of addition, subtraction was performed by nines-complement addition, and multiplication was performed by repeated additions and subtractions.  Invented by Blaise Pascal  Pascal invented it to reduce his father’s tax work load.  Used for taxes in France until 1799 July 28, 201319
  20. 20. 1820 - Arithmometer July 28, 2013  Inventor: Charles Xavier Thomas de Colmar  The arithmometer was the first commercially successful calculating machine to complete all four basic operations — addition, subtraction, multiplication and division — according to IBM. Like Hahn, Thomas also based his calculator on the stepped drum mechanism of Leibniz. The machine featured a second result display for subtraction and division as well as a multiplication gear.20
  21. 21.  W.T. Odhner in Sweden independently develops the pin-wheel calculator, the first of the long series of Odhner calculators. Since then, many calculating machines have used the same principle. July 28, 201321 1874 - Odhner calculators

They use vacuum tubes.  The world's first electronic desktop calculators were announced by the Bell Punch Co., Uxbridge, England - theAnita Mk VII for the continental European market and theAnita Mk 8 for other markets. These models used cold- cathode vacuum tubes and numerical display ("Nixie" type) tubes. July 28, 201325

  37. 37. 1985: First Graphing Calculator Device Name: Casio fx-7000G Inventor: Casio A Brief History: The Casio fx-7000G was developed with 422 bytes of memory and could store up to ten programs in 10 program slots, according to the Computing History website. It offered 82 scientific functions, and its display could toggle between 8 lines of 16 characters each or a 64x96 dot matrix graphical display.  Interesting Fact: Today’s graphing calculators like the TI- 83 kept the fx-7000G’s display format. July 28, 201337
  38. 38.  2003: First Graphing Calculator with Touch Functionality  Photo Credit: Gumtree  Device Name: Sharp EL-9650  Inventor: Sharp  A Brief History: When most people think of touch devices, they think of using their fingers, but Sharp broke the mold by debuting the first stylus-based graphing calculator, according to Tech Powered Math. Sharp, unfortunately, didn’t find much success with the model.  Interesting Fact: The EL-9650 had a slideshow functionality that allowed teachers to walk through pre- programmed lessons and formulas on the calculator. July 28, 201338
  39. 39. 2010: First Color Graphing Calculator Device Name: Casio PRIZM Inventor: Casio A Brief History: While the world of mobile devices quickly moved to full-color screens in the early 2000s, it took a while for graphing calculators to catch up. Casio’s PRIZM calculator, with its advanced, 216x384 resolution, full-color display, debuted in late 2010. Texas Instruments soon followed with its own color calculator, the TI-NSpire Cx, in early 2011. Students could finally bid good-bye to the monochrome, low-pixel displays of years past.  Interesting Fact: The PRIZM allows students to create graphs over images, which helps them understand the real-world applications of the work they’re doing on their graphing calculators.
