My personal favorite is one of the "nines" tricks. Type in the number 12345679 (remember to omit the 8), then multiply it by a number from 0 to 9, then multiply by 9. You will have 9 of the second number you multiplied by so: 12345679*4*9 = 444444444.

Whenever I've got one of these old school calculators in my hands I usually do this:

10/9 =

1.1111111

Then (square the previous result):

*=

1.2345678

Just because.

If it's a simple calculator you won't be able to do any programming on it, but here's a couple of ideas to keep you amused for a few minutes :-

Any of the 'think of a number' type tricks can be done on a calculator - HERE'S a fun one for calculating how old you are by how often you eat chocolate.

Alternatively, you can make words by reading some of the numbers upside-down. Oohhh the thrill of discovering you could do this on my Sinclair Cambridge, wayyyyyyyy back in the 1970's.
