My daughter wanted a calculator for secondary school and she did not want my âancientâ Texas Instruments solar calculator - she wanted a new one.
This had good reviews, it seemed straight forward on first looks, did a lot of different calculations and was an absolute steal at under Â£8. Years ago I remember the large screen calculators that plotted graphs and they cost over Â£50, so this is a bargain.
It comes with a hard cover case, which the calculator slides out and turns round to slide back in again to save losing it. This calculator is powered by batteries, but should not take up much power and apparently there is sufficient warning when the battery is getting low.
I like the big direction button, because if you make a mistake in your entry, you can go to the point and correct it rather than retyping the whole lot again.
When you enter into the calculator, the top part is where your entry is...
I bought this for my son who was starting secondary school. The display on the calculator allows for more readable sums, fractions for example allow you to actually see one number abover the other one instead of using some weird symbol like the calculators when I was at school. The calculator is very simple to use, as well as the standard numbers and mathematical functions, you have a joypad which enables you to move to different parts of the sum (useful if it is a complex one) and make changes without the need to erase everything back to the point where you need to make a correcton.
Very happy with the purchase
Good simple calculator, sufficient for A-level (I'm an examiner). Only frustration is that it is too sophisticated at times and requires extra brackets in 'maths mode' to enable fractions etc to be entered correctly
Delivery was speedy as always.
