    Calculator is also ‘order of operations’ savvy.

    An example: if 1+2×3 is keyed in, it returns the correct 7, not 9 as with most cheap calculators. Unless parentheses dictate otherwise, the order is multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. There is more to all this… see the Wikipedia ‘order of operations’ entry.

    Calculator can also be run RPN mode! Again see Wikipedia.
