Small calculator, valid only within the set of Natural Numbers. Designed to the time of formation of the students in which they can add and multiply, and subtract or divide with integers and positive results. When the results come out of this range, the calculator warns of this: The negative results of the subtractions, and remainder results in the division. The calculator warns of the need for a better tool for these calculations. And new knowledge. At the same time write the spelling of numbers and operations.
Calculator in the set of the natural numbers (ℕ). And is able to write all the natural numbers with words. When the result leaves the set of natural numbers, this calculator points to the need of to upgrade to a calculator with more features. ( ℤ calculator or ℚ calculator). Type the numerical operations and results in words.
Writing numbers : The app writes correctly from from the one (10^0) until the centillion (10^303). Numbers converted in words in a text scroller: Marquee sliding text.

Type in the keyboard, and the spelling of the numbers or operations appears in the upper screen converted in words.
Meaning of the buttons: ↺ "Undo" (undo the last action) ↻ "Redo" (redo the last undone action) C "Clear all" (clears all screens and empty the inner list of actions) ÷ "Divide" (adds the character ÷ on the screen and add this action in the inner list of actions) × "Multiply" (adds the character × on the screen and add this action in the inner list of actions) - "Minus" (adds the character - on the screen and add this action in the inner list of actions) + "Plus" (adds the character + on the screen and add this action in the inner list of actions) (The same with all the numerical buttons) = "Equal" (adds the character = on the screen, add this action in the inner list of actions and performs the operation)
