Exercise 2.6: Toy Observations – Katie Fraser

This is a watch which doubles as a calculator, as well as other regular functions of a digital watch. Calculators are not generally considered toys due to the reasons why they’re normally used. BUT, it’s bright blue color and the fact that you’re wearing a calculator on your wrist makes it a novelty – which in turn makes it fun(ny).

Observations: Student picks up watch from table. Askes what it is. Askes how to operate calculator function. Pushes various buttons on watch. Finds that pushing button on side of watch initiates calculator function. Performs simple calculation on calculator. Seems amused.  Thinks it’s “cool”. Puts watch back down on table.
