  1. Dear Tom,

    Thank you for your kind article about QAMA.

    Do let me know if you would like to have more details regarding the calculator and associated topics – I’ll be happy to call you if you let me know on what number.

    I would also be interested to hear how you found the calculator’s performance, namely, the case-specific acceptance tolerances.

    With kind regards,

    Ilan Samson

    • Hi Ilan, As I mentioned in my post, I think that anything that reinforces our grasp of the basic “mechanics” of maths and science is completely worthy of support. My view was formed by the article in the London Times, which I linked from my post, together with a brief “play” with the online version. I wish you every success with the continuing trial. Kind Regards, tom
