History of Calculators
  • In Ancient Times the abacus was the main aid to calculation.
    • Instrument used beads that slid along a series of wires or rods set in a frame to represent the decimal places.
    • Probably of Babylonian origin.
    • Used by merchants in the Middle Ages throughout Europe and the Arabic world; it was gradually replaced by arithmetic based on Hindu-Arabic numerals.
slide3
1820--The Arithmometer, invented by Charles Xavier Thomas de Colbrar, was introduced. Fifteen hundred models were sold over the next thirty years, chiefly to banks, insurance companies, and other businesses.
slide4
1885--Dorr Felt devised the Comptometer, a key-driven adding and subtracting calculator.
  • 1889--Felt's Comptograph, containing a built-in printer, was introduced.
curta calculator
Curta Calculator
  • 1948--Curta miniature hand-held mechanical calculator was introduced.
first electronic desktop calculator
First ElectronicDesktop Calculator
  • 1960--First electronic desktop calculator - Bell Punch/Sumlock Anita Mk VII - based on cold-cathode vacuum tubes.
  • Orange discharge tube displays numbers used.
slide7
1975--Price of basic pocket calculators very low, many companies left the market due to lack of profits.
  • 1977--Solar powered calculators were introduced.
  • 1978--Credit card sized calculators were introduced.

Introduction

using the calculator

Using the Calculator

Your goal is to use the correct finger to tap a key without looking at the keypad.

tap vs strike
Tap is used to indicate when the touch method can be used effectively to operate a key.

Strike is used to indicate keys and functions whose locations on the calculator do not easily lend themselves to the touch method.

Tap vs. Strike

The textbook will use the acronym “DTC” to indicate desktop calculator.

Calculator Functions
calculator tapes
Calculator Tapes
  • Calculators equipped with tape and a display have a Print Selector.
    • When activated, a tape will print as you perform calculations.
    • When not activated, calculations will appear in the display only.
    • This is designated by the “P” on the top row. If you want to display only, put selector on the dot.
decimal selector
Decimal Selector
  • This gives you the option to choose the number of decimal places needed to calculate a problem.
  • Different types include:
    • [A] or add mode is used when calculating problems with two decimal places.
    • [F] key (floating decimal) used when calculating figures that don’t have the same decimal places
    • 0, 1, 2, 3, 6 are fixed decimals used when the entry has the same number of decimal places
clear key
Clear Key
  • Clear key (CE) clears data from the calculator.
    • Clears only the last entry
    • Clears only numbers that have not been entered
  • Always clear the calculator before entering a new problem by pushing total button [*] twice.
plus key

Plus Key

Plus Key is used to enter addends.

Look for the [+=] key.

minus key

Minus Key

Use the Minus Key to remove addends for incorrect entries.

Look for the [- =] key.

total key

Total Key

Use the Total Key to print or display the answer to a problem.

Look for the Total [*] key.

touch method
Touch Method
  • 10-key touch method means tapping the 0 through 9 keys on the 10-key pad without looking at the keypad.
  • Curve the index, middle and third fingers and place them over the home row (4,5,6 keys).
  • Keep the fingers located over the home row and extend out to tap numbers using the correct finger.
  • Practice moving your fingers to the keys above and below the home row.
finger position
Finger Position
  • If you are right-handed, use the index finger for 7, 4, 1. Use the middle finger for 8, 5, 2, 00. Use the ring finger for 9, 6, 3, decimal. Use the little finger for the [+] and [-] keys. Use your thumb for 0.
  • If you are left-handed, use the index finger for 9, 6, 3, decimal. Use middle finger for 8, 5, 2, 00. Use ring finger for 7, 4, 1. Use little finger for 0. Use your thumb for the [+] and [-] keys.

See page 6 for finger position.

practice finger position
Practice Finger Position
  • Clear the calculator by pressing [CE] and [*].
  • Set decimal selector to 0.
  • Position the book at an angle so you can keep your eyes on the problems while operating the key pad by touch.
  • Curve your fingers and place them over the home row keys.
  • Enter the digits from left to right.
    • Enter 4, 5, 6 and tap the [+] key
    • Enter 5, 6, 4 and tap the [+] key
    • Enter 6, 4, 5 and tap the [+] key
  • Tap the total key [*] to calculate the sum. (1,665)
correcting errors
Correcting Errors
  • Accuracy is extremely important. Be aware when you have entered the wrong digits.
  • Correcting errors before tapping the plus key—strike the [CE] key once.
  • The [→] is the last digit correction key.
  • Correcting errors after tapping the plus key—tap the [-] key immediately before entering the next addend. This will subtract the incorrect number from the total.
verifying and recording your answers
Verifying and RecordingYour Answers
  • Always check calculations for accuracy. Record answer in space provided at end of each problem.
    • Printing mode. Verify the calculations with the tape entries
    • Display mode. Repeat the problem in reverse addition (add the numbers from bottom to top).
  • If your answer is correct, place a small checkmark next to the first answer and record it on the answer sheet. If your second answer is different, write it next to first answer and calculate again. Draw line through incorrect answers and record correct answer on the answer sheet.
problems 1 20
Problems 1-20
  • Use the touch method to calculate problems 1, 6, 11, and 16 on p. 9 two times. (First time use tape, second time use display, and add from bottom up)
  • Remember to keep your eyes on the problems.
  • Develop the habit of using the total symbol on the tape before beginning a problem.
  • See if you can increase your speed by keying in the problem two times. (Key the problem without the tape on first and then turn on the tape feature.)

    • Enter 314 and tap the [+] key twice.
    • Enter 555 and tap the [+] key three times.
    • Tap the total key [*]
    • Did you get 2,293?
  • Complete problems 21 and 22 (p. 11) in class.

item count
Item Count
  • Counts the number of times [+] and [–] are tapped as a problem is calculated.
    • Counts the number of times [+] is tapped and subtracts 1 each time [–] is tapped.
    • Count is reset to zero when pressing the total key [*].
  • Set the selector on the [P·IC] key to turned on feature. Calculate: 45 [+] 56 [+] 21 [+], [*]. Note item count in left margin. (It should be 3).

    • Problems 48-52 you add the columns down and put the grand total in 53.
    • 47 & 53 should be the same number.
decimal place values
Decimal Place Values
  • Numbers to the left of the decimal are whole numbers. Each place is ten times greater than the place to its right. For number 3,692.1983

3,692

(3 thousands, 6 hundreds, 9 tens, 2 ones)

  • Digits to the right of the decimal indicate a part of the whole or a fraction of the whole. Each place is ten times greater than the place to its left.

.1983
