Some demo videos use the name "MightyMath" which was a dumb idea.

Notice the similarities between the screens and how the same approach
is available with all of them. As far as calculations go. A simple
solution is used here for a simple problem. The full syntax allows a
variety of ways to get the job done. The roulette simulator, for
example, uses direct cell references (e.g. B4) which is the sole
approach of most things called a "spreadsheet." Just got a microphone
so this these videos are getting sound as I go through them.

all of your trails to see exactly what's happening showing you precise
moments of time in the calculation of your table. You can even see
recent references to cells and memories.
even most, tables have blocks of rows that are all subject to the same
calculations. With a little care, you can set your table up so
that specifications other than the typed data can be added
automatically by T/Maker. This is a big time saver and you can do it
with confidence. (There is a second trail to calculate column averages
that I forgot to show.)

screen to direct attention. Also notice in this little application that
messages are put in trails to signal something to the user. A trail is
so much more than a fromula.

a wipe out becomes more common because you can cover fewer bets with
the same amount of money. The bets must be bigger.
