In this project students create a Shanon Throbac calculator. Using Python and their knowledge of strings, conditionals, and loops, students must design a program that does Roman Numeral arithmetic. The program will prompt for two Roman Numerals, convert them into integers, sum the two integers, and print the sum. This assignment is particularly useful for students who are experienced with manipulating strings and conditionals.
Uses the creation of a calculator using atypical symbols (Roman numerals) to create a Meaningful and Relevant Context.
