Normally you interact with the calculator in the Console tab of the work area. If you are running the text only version then the console will be the only thing that is available to you. If you want to use Genius Mathematics Tool as a calculator only, just type in your expression in the console, it will be evaluated, and the returned value will be printed.
To evaluate an expression, type it into the Console work area and press enter. Expressions are written in a language called GEL. The most simple GEL expressions just looks like mathematics. For example
30*70 + 67^3.0 + ln(7) * (88.8/100)
62734 + 812634 + 77^4 mod 5
| sin(37) - e^7 |
sum n=1 to 70 do 1/n
(Last is the harmonic sum from 1 to 70)
