Online Calculators and Converters

Basic Calculator

The Internet is brilliant for finding just about everything!

It is especially easy to find plenty of free online apps for calculating and converting.
There are free online converters for just about anything you could ever want to do.

My son told me that Google is the best search engine for finding converters. Whenever he hits a problem he cannot do in "Matheletics" online games, he just Googles to find a converter app that can get him the answers he needs.

In this post we provide links to our favorite free online converters.

If Blogger sites are blocked in your school, then you can also read this post at our Mathematics blog on WordPress by clicking the link below:

Note that to get to each converter, it is necessary to Click the Link that we have supplied. Clicking the screen shot of the Converter, does not take you to the online app.

(Eg. Because it is a bit tricky to do picture links in Blogger, we haven't bothered connecting the screen shots to the apps, but instead provided direct text links.)
