Summary: I purchased these for my grandchildren. It's the calculator I used with my fourth grade class. Shows the division answer in 3 R2 form as well as decimal form. Also great for fraction to decimal and decimal to fraction form.
Excerpt: Needed this for the grandsons homework. It is the one approved by his school. The store did not have any in stock but the store staff. took care of me without a problem. The shipping to my town was great. Needless to say, homework completion has improved!
Summary: We had a problem with the buttons sticking, every time we used this calculator. It is hard to do math when buttons stick, either repeating a number, or not imputing it. Kind of defeats the purpose of having it in the first place.
Excerpt: I purchase this calculator to help my daughter with her mathematical problems in school. She is in the fourth grade and she has been doing a whole lot better on her math work as well as help with different ways of solving the problems.
Summary: Works as advertised. However, I would have preferred to buy the advanced calculator now so he can get used to it for MS/HS. Also I had to buy it online because all the stores that had carried it were out of stock. Since the stores were sold out and wouldn't restock it.
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.
