This is a great tool.
As someone who wasn't always an ace in algebra, this would've been handy back in the day. Well, they have it now.

Great idea--Could we get one for the Presidency?
Gee! If the voters could only get something like this programmed for the President. When he or she starts to do something that is wrong, the voters could instantly respond with the appropriate "help".

My problem with the story
If students are using calculators in school, it's no wonder the people working at McDonalds can't make change.
