Question
Scientific Calculator
Scientific Calculator  
Dear Prof Anne

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_calculator
http://www.math.com/students/calculators/source/scientific.htm
http://www.squarebox.co.uk/scalc.htm


Can there be further enhancements to the Scientific Calculator device functions in addition to the current functions provided by the Device ?

For examples : Matrix Algebra, Computing real roots of quadratic equation, Simultaneous equations, Vector algebra etc

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
I know the ti83 can already do computations with matrices and computing roots.   I'm not sure what else is available.  If software programs such as Wolfram Alpha can do those computations, a calculator would be able to be programmed to do such operations.  I hope this helps
