Using Programmable Calculators to Evaluate Complicated Formulas.
Snover, Stephen L.; Spikell, Mark A.
The application of the programmable calculator to evaluating complicated formulas is illustrated by considering the formula for finding the area of any triangle when only the lengths of the three sides are known. Other advantages of the programmable calculator are discussed such as freeing the student to explore more challenging problems and discovering unexpected results. Flow charts and programs for the problem stated are given. (MP)
