Using a slide rule used to be common, necessary knowledge among mathy types. In 1969, NASA and Bell Labs people still did most of their calculations with paper and a slide rule.

Nowadays you'd be hard pressed to find someone with any idea how a slide rule works, although using "slide rule precision" to mean "three digits" occasionally comes up. Well, there's a bunch of cheap ones on Ebay, and this illustrated slide rule course can let you experience history first hand.
