When I was in college, I’d hear from my professors (and other elders) that my generation had a leg up on those who came before us.
They had slide rules. We had graphing calculators.
We had email and (at least the earliest forms of) the Internet. They had typewriters and maybe access to a fax machine.
The list goes on.
Now, I”m looking at the situation the other way – amazed how college kids have it so easy now with wi-fi and smartphones apps. I’m not mad. Maybe just a tad jealous.
Check out these cool apps that help with homework from the US News & World Report via Yahoo!.
I think the iFormulas would have been the most significant for me. I remember using my graphing calculator as a storage device for such information.
