A refreshing change
Message #1 Posted by Hal Bitton in Boise on 8 Sept 2008, 1:21 a.m.

Hi folks...
I thought this was interesting.
Apparently, Thiel College requires the HP50g for it's math courses. And what's more, the student is required to use the machine in RPN mode.
This requirement appears to be well supported by what appears to be excellent online tutorials for using the 50g.
The mathematics professor there, Dr Mervin Newton, must have a strong (passionate?) preference for HP machines.
It's nice to see an educational institution stand against the tide.
Anyone know of other such schools?
Best regards, Hal

Nice to see for sure. Made it to the tutorials, too. May this be the first crack in the Texas Rock -- let's hope for the best. BTW, please correct your link above.
