Evolution of Calculators

Evolution of Calculators

There have been many different stages in the evolution of calculators. Four stages were the abacus, anita, pocket calculator, and the current complex calculator. It began in 500 B.C. when the abacus was invented. Many, many years later the anita was invented. It was invented around the 1950s. Then, in 1969, pocket calculators were invented. Lastly, the current calculator we use these days is very complex. Middle schoolers and high schoolers use this calculator in their math classes to quickly calculate math problems. Sometimes, it may take to long to solve the problem by hand and it is a very useful tool when it comes to algebra. Calculators also help to make life easier with the use of technology.

All in all, calculators have impacted our lives tremendously and have not only made math a lot easier but daily lives as well. There has been lots of engineering involved in the evolution of calculators.
