Summary: We love love love this calculator. I don't know why they don't sell this in stores! It makes it so easy to add mixed numbers, reduce fractions, convert percents and decimals, work with integers, insert exponents, and more. Plus, you can see what data you entered at the same time you see the answer. It also has other features that I really haven't used yet, and it includes two plastic-coated cards that clearly and simply show how to use all the features.
Summary: Its a good calculator and its as good as what you can expect from TI. My son likes it. I felt that compared to older TI calculators, the plastic casing is kind of cheap material (not as sturdy as it used to be).
Summary: My child needed a calculator for school that would show a remainder as a whole number. The school didn't specify a model or brand, just that the calculator needed to have the remainder feature. After much searching online to find a model, we decided on the TI-15. It has been a very good value for the price that we paid. This calculator should last both of my children through the rest of elementary/early middle school.
