OMRON, Mountain View, CA.
The Omron Company produced a 30 page comic book designed to introduce children of elementary school age to electronic calculators in general and to teach them how to operate its Omron calculator. The book provides sample diagrams of and operating instructions for the machine and illustrates through the activities of its major characters the mathematical operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Number problems and puzzles are offered with provision made in workbook fashion for allowing the reader to check his understanding of the text by figuring out solutions to sample problems. Examples involving the calculator in the solution of non-school numerical problems are used to convey the message that both mathematics and calculators are of general practical significance. (PB)
