10.4: Be aware of a Calculator widget bug
Authored by: diamondsw on May 24, '05 12:17:17PM

As I have consistently pointed out, this is most certainly a bug. Math doesn't change because developers are lazy. Now, if they want to clean up the interface, I'm all for that, but left to right is not correct under any circumstances.

No one is claiming that math changed. All that is being said here is that the calculator is just calculating one operation at a time. This is standard and expected behavior of calculators of this sort. The only non-graphing calculator I have ever seen that used order of operations was one with advanced features like parenthases.

Standard scientific calculators you get in year 8 use BIMDAS.
