What an excellent gift.

Newton works is built into ROM along with Newt Draw extension, which  
is handy since the eMate is somewhat limited in storage.
The spread sheet may be of interest to a 12 yr old but I suspect that  
the extension he wants is the graphing calculator.
The name of the file could be Works Calculations.pkg or possibly  
see <http://www.unna.org/view.php?/applications/NewtonWorks>

Be sure to do system patch for eMate
see <http://40hz.org/Pages//40Hz>
Do hinge repair
see <http://www.pda-soft.de/emate_disassemble.html>

Hold down 'Option Key'  to see keyboard short cuts.
