5th grade standard for math. Great product / lots of features to learn.

Summary: This was recommended as the standard calculator for our 5th grader to purchase for math class. Very impressed with the ability to work with and show fractions (seemingly a bit part of this year's curriculum). Also, exponents are done, but there are some limitations. I only took off a star because the instructional manual that came with it was, understandably, a little too large and hard to follow. But the product does a lot. Way more than I ever needed at his age.
A nice calculator for school age kids- and parents :)

Summary: This calculator was required for my son in sixth grade and it arrived quickly. The calculator works well with clearly marked keys and sturdy build quality. I love the multi line display so you can actually see the numbers you are calculating, helps to spot errors :) BTW, the size of the calculator is great as it works for my large hands and fingers. Too bad I may have to buy my own.
Summary: I am well pleased with this calculator. It has features that I, as an elementary math teacher, find invaluable for teaching and checking addition, subtraction, multiplication, division (with decimal and remainder), fractions (all 4 functions. simplifying, transitioning to mixed, shifting between fractions and decimals), rounding and estimating numbers and other functions. Great for having students check their work and become familiar with calculators.
Summary: My daughter's teacher recommended this calculator for her TCAP test. She loves it and feels it is very easy to use. We could not find it anywhere locally and was happy to have Amazon save the day.
Summary: My son loves this calculator. He loves to play on it even when he isn't doing his math. This is the same calculator that the school had for the students so that is the reason why I ordered it. I would definitely recommend this calculator because it really has some great features and easy for a nine year old to use.
