How can quilt calculators and charts help quilters?

Quilting and quilt making involves a lot of mathematics and mathematical calculations.  I never realized it until I started to quilt.  Math is used to plan and design quilts, from calculating fabric yardage to playing with geometry to design a block.  Instead of spending a lot of time calculating yardage, block sizes, etc., use a handy quilt calculator or chart.
