Make a calculator, but don't use multiply or divide. Only use add and subtract, even for the multiply and divide functions.

Teaches you how a computer does math. Makes you think about how to do things like exponents, square roots, and all the other functions of an advanced calculator. It is one of the basic assignments you see in most college programming courses. Do you know an efficient way to find the square root of a large number using only addition and subtraction? It is a fun and challenging project for a beginner.
Whats the point?
