ab: Summary: Relaxation can provide time for reflection. This paper illustrates
how relaxation, in the form of fishing, led to reflection involving
mathematics and technology ‒ in particular, the calculator technology
fostered by Bert Waits and Frank Demana, Ohio’s
internationally-recognized leaders in the field.
