Perfect for Maths students

matyid, Ciao
17 July 2010
  • Excerpt: An ideal calculator for GCSE and A level students. When joing my Maths A level course they seemed to make out you need a graphic calculator, but this calc does all the functions necassary to get a high leve l A level in Maths. Of course it does your basic sums - which is the absoloute minimum. But more important, it can give answers in decimal value, and pressing a button will put it in Surd form or fractional. Precisely what is needed for A level.
  • Pros: Does it all
  • Cons: Can't draw graphs, but this isn't essential

The Perfect A-Level Calculator

  • Excerpt: As a mathematics and physics A-Level student, my calculator is a very important day to day tool. The Fx-85ES is everything you'd need at this level, plus much more! One particularly excellent feature is textbook mode, which allows you to put equations in exactly how you'd see them in your text book and inputting is so exceptionally easy that i've found that any other calculator does not feel as solid.
  • Pros: Text book option equates to easy calculations; Great for A - Level Mathematics and Physics
  • Cons: Compared to more expensive calculators it has less features .  .  .  understandably .  .

  • Excerpt: The best feature that you get with this model is its durability, i have had mine for well over 5 years. Being an avid mathematician, i use it time and time again and never has the screen blurred or ran out of battery, which is impossible as it has two way power. The natural display feature means that we can write equations and fractions the way we see them, and don't have to mess around with buttons that we would usually have to tamper with on other calculators.
  • Pros: Durability, usability
  • Cons: it lacks a few features as your maths gets more in depth

  • Excerpt: Design - Size - The calculator is rather big but this is actually a good thing as there is a tumult of buttons; thankfully these have been designed to a perfect size and so enable to user to easily press every single button. Style - I rather like the colour of the casio calculator, the front section is black and the back is grey. There are some lovely curves and the calculator is nice and thin (about 1cm) and is extremely light-weight for it's size.
  • Pros: scientific, size, weight, design
  • Cons: perhaps it should be all black in colour

  • Excerpt: I brought from my college for my sister who is doing her GCSEs, however I borrowed it and fell in love (ok it`s a calculator I know) but when I was doing my A-Level maths it made life a lot easier, screw knowing the exact values of trig functions and log conversion laws, this does it. Gives you the exact values and can do any log!

25 September 2007
  • Excerpt: I bought this calculator at my local woolworths as i was after a scientific calculator and one that was cheap(i paid under £10 for this one which seemed a good price). The calculator is made by Casio which are a well known brand for making anything from calculators to TV's . The dimensions are 84x155x12mm and it is a light too which is a bonus. The keys are large enough for most people and all the writing is clear on and above the keys.
  • Pros: Good Price, Does that it says it will, Solar powered
  • Cons: None that i can think of

Great scientific calculator for maths&science

19 September 2007
  • Excerpt: This product is easy to use and has all the key features most scientists or mathematicians would need. It is also useful for children at a KS3 and higher level but probably nothing lower. There are simple, easy to understnad instructions included (which are definately helpful if you understand anything to do with maths as well as I do - i.e. not well at all!) to show you how to use certain buttons on the caluculator, but apart from that it is pretty straightforward.
  • Pros: easy to use, fufilled it's potential as a calculator
  • Cons: none  : )

  • Excerpt: I was provided this calculator by my school so didn't purchase it myself but I know it is readily available in most shops (WHSmith - £9.99, Tesco, Argos). The calculator is made by Casio which is a well known and trusted brand for calculators. The dimensions are 84x155x12mm and it is light to carry. It comes in two parts - the main calculator (black face and grey base) and plastic sliding lid (grey).
  • Pros: great brand, loads of functions, natural display, solar powered
  • Cons: none

Before starting the course, the teacher recommended to get this calculator, and I never once regretted it. Casio have always been my favourite brand of calculators, but this is definately their best yet. I have found it extremely useful in both core maths and statistics.
  • Pros: Natural textbook display, Easy to use, Good value for money, Casio, everything !  !
  • Cons: None !
