Information sheet for Mathatronics Mathatron 8-48M (Version I)

There were two versions of the Mathatron 8-48M, Version I, which was an adaptation of the original Mathatron 8-48 to provide "hard coded" math programs (in magnetic core-based ROM) for advanced mathematics functions. The 8-48M was joined by the 8-48C (for Civil Engineering applications), the 8-48S (for Statistical applications), and the 8-48SC (for Scientific applications). All of these Version I calculators utilized a rotary switch on the keyboard panel to select the advanced function, along with an additional keyboard key that cause the selected function to be executed.
