This is a cool site. It is extremely simple, and any computer should be able to
run it. This comic and educational page allows you to make calculations on a
crude calculator using ancient Roman Numerals. The page provides a table of the
Numerals and their definitions, so the user will not be confused if they have no
experience with Roman Numerals. I only spent ten or so minutes on this site,
and I was impressed. It's sublime in it's simplicity. This is a very educational
site, for all ages, as I learned Roman Numerals in elementary school. This is
an extremely effective way to learn this system, and can be easily utilized by
teachers.

This is a neat site. It lets the user mess around with a calculator that is
associated with the Romans. I spent about 15 minutes just putting in different
numbers and messing around with the calculator. The site also gives us lots of
information on the calculator and what errors the user may encounter when using
the calculator. This is a great model of what a calculator would look like if
there was to be one during the Roman times. The teacher can definitely use this
site to teach the students the history of calculators and how each one was
different based on time and people. The calculator was easy to use and the
instructions were easy to understand.

This is a neat web page, if you are looking for information on the official
calculator of the Romans. They explain fully how to use the calculator and tell
a few jokes on the way. It is probably a good page for you to check out if you
need to review your Roman Numerals too. They have a link to an abacus site
that is less helpful than most of the ones that I have seen. Nevertheless, the
virtual calculator and abacus work fairly well.

Technical Remarks:

Not a very sophisticated website and very few links. However, it is not
unexciting. I think that it is worth looking at, especially if you are
interested in the original calculator.
