Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Dataman Electronic Calculator

handheld video game

Texas Instruments produced a large line of electronic educational products, including the Dataman Electronic Calculator. Unlike a true calculator, typing in an equation will not produce an answer. Instead, users are required to provide an answer, and Dataman will either produce several flashes on its screen for a correct response, or give an error message if not. Providing an incorrect response two times in a row will prompt Dataman to display the right answer. But all work and no play makes for a dull experience, so Texas Instruments also included five math-themed mini games on the device.
