calculator
- Something used for making mathematical calculations, in particular a small electronic device with a keyboard and a visual display
- A calculator is a small (often pocket-sized), usually inexpensive electronic device used to perform the basic operations of arithmetic. Modern calculators are more portable than most computers, though most PDAs are comparable in size to handheld calculators.
- an expert at calculation (or at operating calculating machines)
- a small machine that is used for mathematical calculations

decimal
- numbered or proceeding by tens; based on ten; "the decimal system"
- The decimal numeral system (also called base ten or occasionally denary) has ten as its base. It is the numerical base most widely used by modern civilizations.
- Relating to or denoting a system of numbers and arithmetic based on the number ten, tenth parts, and powers of ten
- Relating to or denoting a system of currency, weights and measures, or other units in which the smaller units are related to the principal units as powers of ten
- decimal fraction: a proper fraction whose denominator is a power of 10

inches
- A unit of linear measure equal to one twelfth of a foot (2.54 cm)
- (inch) edge: advance slowly, as if by inches; "He edged towards the car"
- column inch: a unit of measurement for advertising space
- A unit used to express other quantities, in particular
- (inch) a unit of length equal to one twelfth of a foot
- A very small amount or distance

Calculated Industries 4045 Construction Master IV Calculator

These feet-inch-fraction calculators feature a broad range of nearly automatic construction/math problem solutions. From its single key solutions to arc length, circumference, circle area, board feet conversions, and weight-per-volume conversions, this popular calculator works in most common construction or building dimensional formats. It adds, subtracts, multiplies, and divides in feet-inch-fractions, decimal feet (10ths, 100ths), inches, fractions, decimal inches, yards, meters, centimeters, millimeters, and square and cubic dimensions. Plus, it converts to and from any dimensional format. Model CA224 automatically finds lengths of rafters, regular (45 deg) and irregular (non-45 deg) hips, valleys and jacks, stair stringers, angle of incline, number of risers and treads for any landing-to-landing height, plus riser height and tread width. Covers practically any construction, building, or remodeling application. Features paperless tape for reviewing past 20 entries. Model CA227 features advanced dedicated key functions for blocks, roof areas, and footings. Enhanced stair, rafter, rake wall, and circular cone functions. Both models include easy-to-follow pocket reference guides in English and Spanish, English and Spanish How-To C

If we could do this kind of math in our heads, we'd be working for NASA, not cutting wood. This little gem will add, subtract, multiply, and divide yards, feet, inches, fractions, decimals, meters, centimeters, and millimeters and make you look really, really smart. We threw some astronomical calculations at it and got our answers in the time it took to push a button. Figuring board feet, squares, and cubics is not a problem, and this calculator will do area and volume as well. Stairs--perhaps the most intimidating of all construction projects--become nothing but a quick calculation. We thought it was a nice touch that a battery was included, and the user's guide is great, even for someone who lacks a degree in rocket science. We know how you like to do all your figuring problems in pencil all over scrap wood, but give this a spin. It'll be the least expensive and smallest power tool in your arsenal (it fits in a shirt pocket), but one of your best investments. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

A strange side-effect, from back when the only hint of an app store was just a glimmer in the eye of the dashboard widgets, and I signed up, thinking I could teach myself how to write an X-code widget that would help me turn property title descriptions into proper GPS-NMEA, as well as a general, multifunction construction calculator that could handle degrees, minutes, seconds as easily as decimal, and feet/inches input, as well as slopes, roof pitch and stairs.
After failure to launch, the most complicated I got was a spreadsheet that I could look-up load limits of southern-yellow-pine, even though the actual architects had always already over-engineered any of the houses I was building.
So, not only did I never really learn x-code well enough to even create a widget, let alone an app, which I thought might be a gateway into an alternate career path, but every once in a while I get odd things like this show up...
(I did, however, get to the point I felt like a pro at SketchUp, and I wish I hadn't sold my SpaceNavigator, now that I'm getting out of practice.)

Friday Feet At Work

Ok, so after my friend Marianna (greekchickie) put up her daring photo at work with her feet on the boss' desk, I thought I better do one too. This is my own desk but I am just in a cubicle very near the break room and plotter room where people walk by all the time, not very enclosed. I think they would've laughed if they saw me with my feet up but then I would've had to explained Flickr and why I was taking the photo. Oh well, this is my sad little "desk", really just a table.

This basic math fundamentals workbook relies on the student to have grasped the multiplication tables, from one to ten. Without this ability to instantly know the answers, the advantages are outweighed by this inability to seek the correct answer given certain situations. My rigorous addition, subtraction, multiplication and division approach, using whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percents examples, will help the learner become a better player in the field of math. These short fundamental lessons will bridge the gap that was lost somewhere in the educational process years ago.
