RE: Teaching kids real math with computers/calculators
The Raspberry Pi might be worth considering:
Pro: It supports many languages, including Scratch for youngsters and the popular Python. It also comes with Mathematica. The board itself is only about £40. Con: It is not a selfcontained package like a calculator or laptop. Add case, usb powerpack, touchscreen and keyboard/mouse, and it is no longer so cheap or convenient. If you want microPython, the French Casio CG50 calculator apparently implements that but foreign equivalents do not. Stephen Lewkowicz (G1CMZ) https://my.numworks.com/python/steveg1cmz
