The availability of electronic pocket calculators, at prices which the students can afford, has had a considerable impact on electrical engineering education. Not only has the drudgery from computations been eliminated but it is also possible now to give meaningful and nontrivial problems which test the students' understanding of the details and subtleties of the discipline. A number of topics from circuit and systems theory are used as illustrative examples to demonstrate how the advent of the pocket calculator has changed "formidable" and "tedious" problems to the category "straightforward," and provided a better grasp of the theory.
