The calculator worksheet has been adapted from the downloadable spreadsheet, originally provided by the Massachusetts Library Association and then adapted for the web by Chelmsford Public Library.  Maine State Library added extra accessibility coding and reformatting for ease of reading online. We have made out own adaptations to this. This spreadsheet requires either Microsoft Excel or the Excel Viewer.
