Very cool freeware calculator app by Scott Fortmann-Roe:

Longhand is a calculator built from the ground up to facilitate calculation. Most other computer calculators try blindly to emulate the physical format of their predecessors. […] Longhand uses the same paradigm as a word processor. You simply type in equations instead of hunting and pecking virtual calculator buttons. As your equation is entered, Longhand dynamically calculates the answer.

Comes with a nice user manual too, accessed via the Help menu. (Via Jonathan ‘Wolf’ Rentzsch.)
