figuring distance from Lat/lon

Thanks for the formulas. They seem to be the same as my math teacher friend provided. My GPS will calculate distances I just was curious about how to do it with a calculator. Actually my knot meter is not that acurate so that it''s error is probably my greatest source of error.
Thanks
Tom
