Introduction to Calculators

A calculator is a math tool with a grouping of pre-programmed equations and constants.

Creating a calculator in vCalc is easy and powerful.  The calculators you create are private by default and only available to you.  However they can also be available to your vCalc colleagues and the public if you so choose.  Let’s get started.
