    Besides knowing basic java, you need to know the Android environment.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    It would be more knowing the Android environment than knowing Java. When you are making something as simple as a calculator, most of your time will go into creating the GUI (Graphical User Interface). You create the GUI with the Android environment, not with Java's UI toolset (you don't use Swing, AWT, ect. on Android Apps).
    With that said, since you are making a calculator, you should be extremely aware of Java's Math API: Math (Java Platform SE 7 )
