Get the Most from your Calculator

Calculators are an invaluable tool when doing maths. As a student you need to become proficient at using your calculator.

While calculators are an important tool for doing maths, you still need to understand how to do calculations without a calculator and to understand if the results of a calculation are reasonable or not.
