Study of accuracy of calculators


Since the first electronic calculators were made until today, there has been a lot of changes and improvements on the speed and accuracy of calculators. Specially when it comes to programmable and engineering calculators, accuracy is very important. 

When working with large numbers and repeated calculations, inaccuracies will add up and may get so high to make the results unusable.

 Project description
In this project you will learn different methods of testing calculators for their accuracy. You will then perform experiments on old and new calculators that you may have access to, measure and compare their accuracy.
