Google Goes Ultra Nerdy, Adds Graphic Calculator

12.06.11 6 years ago 3 Comments

We all remember the days in math class where we got dealt out the TI-83, silently praying that we got the one someone had surreptitiously programmed “Tetris” or “Doom” onto. Then we became adults and discovered that most of what we learned in high school wasn’t going to matter in our office jobs.

But occasionally you have to help the boss’s bratty teenage daughter with her homework or something. Or maybe you do actually use graphic calculators at your job. Either way, if the battery’s dead, Google has your back.

Yep, type in the function and Google will spit out a graph. Why does Google do this? Because it’s run by nerds. This is what Adi Avidor, the engineer who implemented this project, had to say:

I hope students and math lovers around the world find this experience as magical as I found the graphing calculator so long ago.

So, what does Ogre have to say about this?
