| Engineers, scientists prefer pencil and paper
“Maplesoft, of Waterloo, Ont., says that according to an international survey, mathematical calculations in engineering and academia are still most often performed with pencil and paper. On a daily basis, respondents turn to scratchpads and calculators more frequently than any other tool for mathematical tasks. The same survey also revealed this community still largely considers its field of work and study to be "fully modern" and "taking full advantage of modern tools and technology”.”
