The death of the graphing calculator?

9 Jan

iPhone? Nah, ancient calculator!

Last month, Google released a Graphical Math Calculator application to their already brimming toolbox of add-ons.  Now, if an equation is entered into the search box, it will graph the result.

Seriously?

This is amazing, but I had to save $150 for the TI-83 graphing calculator in high school. It was a rite of passage and took serious money management to be able to buy before school started in September.  Now kids can just Google it? Math may have gotten a ton easier, but I have a feeling it will lead to many fewer students interested in pursuing the field, if Google can do it all for them.

Your thoughts? (and yes, picture is not a graphing calculator, but an awesome iPhone skin)
