Survey: Engineers, Scientists Still Rely On Hand Calculations

Maplesoft reports that mathematical work is still often performed with paper and pencil.

“On a daily basis, respondents turn to scratch pads and calculators more frequently than any other tool for mathematical tasks. The same survey also revealed this community largely considers its field of work and study as both modern and taking full advantage of modern tools and technology.”

“The study results are drawn from an international survey of scientists, engineers and researchers across a variety of markets, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, life sciences, finance and education. With more than 2,000 participants, the survey offers insight into the daily practices, experiences and perceptions of the technical user community, the company reports.”

Excerpt taken from, “Survey: Engineers, Scientists Still Rely On Hand Calculations”, Cadalyst, May 26, 2006.
