## Hewlett Packard HP6S SLR Solar Scientific Calculator Feature

- Solar powered
- Essential scientific and mathematical functions for middle-school use
- Essential trig and math functions for scientific applications
- Base conversions and arithmetic
- Easy-to-use algebraic entry system

Combining both battery and solar power, the Hewlett-Packard Solar Scientific calculator is ideal for students ranging from middle-school algebra all the way up to college-level trigonometry. Don't let the calculator's slim design fool you; although it's compact and easy to slip in a pocket or desk drawer, the functions are meaty. You can use the fraction and fraction-decimal conversion to work with irrational numbers and utilize sine, cosine, tangent, exponential, natural log, and antilog functions for scientific applications.

The calculator also allows you to convert minutes and seconds (sexagesimal figure) to decimal format, as well as perform conversions with hexadecimal, octal, and binary bases. Algebra students can enter data in algebraic notation, just like they would if they were writing on paper. And if the math lessons last until after dark, this solar-powered calculator will automatically switch over to battery-powered operation.

The calculator's instruction booklet is comprehensive and easy to read. Our only complaint with the HP6SSLR is its single-line display. While it is large and easy to read in most conditions, for those used to graphic or multiline calculators, it may be disappointing. *--Ariel Meadow Stallings*
