Summary of our poll to students

Translations: Français

As part of the development of our calculator, a poll has been set up for high school students and shared with a few math teachers around Lyon. The goal was to determine the common problems met by students when using their calculators. We got more than a hundred answers, so we can draw pretty reliable conclusions on the challenges the Symbolibre calculator has to address. The screenshots are in French, the translation of the questions is provided below ("oui" is "yes"). Without further ado, let’s see the results!

What conclusions can we draw?

It’s first apparent that few good points are raised by the students. Apart from having a readable display, none of the aspects we suggested reach a general satisfaction. There are even agreements on bad behaviour of features. Let’s see what we can hope to improve with the Symbolibre calculator:

As you can see, there’s a lot of work to do. We’ll leave it up to you to evaluate our contribution to these aspects!
