Their teacher, Ms. Shoebockle, a hard teacher of the school, had given them homework. This wasn't spelling homework, or handwriting homework, this was math. The students didn't know what to do, it was the first day of school, no one had taught them them any math yet. They decided to contact the other adults. First they tried their parents, but many were at work or unwilling to help. Next they tried calling their local government officials, however they thought it was just a prank and ignored the poor students. They continued their quest asking NASA, the military, they even got a hold of the president himself. No one would help though, they were all too busy or thought it was a joke. The students began to wonder if Ms. Shoebockle had paid off the entire world. Finally, one of the students remembered that he had a brother that was in college. He figured it was worth a shot. He picked up the phone, and by mistake, rather than calling his brother, he called the Purdue department of Computer Science. Upon hearing the news of the first graders plight, the secretary who took the call rushed to the CS 180 professor and demanded that he have his students write a program to assist the first graders in completing their homework. The professor decided that he would have his students make a simple calculator. 3. Setup
