    5.0 out of 5 stars Casio FX 83 Calculator 29 Aug 2010
    By C. Buck
    I bought this for my son who was starting secondary school on the recommendation of the 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.

    The FX-83 uses AAA batteries to run but you will get plenty of notification that they need replacing so you shouldn't get to the situation where it fails during a crucial exam. The calculator comes with it's own hard plastic case for ultimate protection when not in use.

    The calculator is endorsed for use by all of the major examining bodies, making this a super choice for any schoolkid. The calculator is also great for adults too, it's ease of use makes it a winner all round.

    Perfect for the Open University science modules that require a non-programmable calculator that can be brought into the exam room (I take S282 and S283 this year). Sturdy and fit well in the palm of the hand. Large display screen that goes easy on the eyes and its ability to display maths formula in a natural way is definitely a plus. The ratio features over price is hight! I would recommend it to any Open University student without hesitation.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Casio Calculator 12 Oct 2010
    Verified Purchase
    I purchased this calculator in order to use its functions on an Open University course - it was the type they recommended. It is very simple to use and the best feature is its ability to display formulae 'as they are written'. The price is very reasonable for a great gadget; I will continue to find it invaluable during my studies!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Casio Calculator 26 Oct 2011
    This calculator is great value for money as I am using it for Higher(A level) maths and physics. One thing that annoyed me was that answers were given in fractions and would end up converting the fraction to the wrong number, i.e. 5/9 would convert to 0.5 when infact it should be 0.555556 which when rounded becomes 0.6. BEFORE YOU STOP READING THERE IS A SOLUTION! Simply press [SHIFT][MODE][1:MathIO] in other words shift button, mode button then the number 2. Great calculator, great price and I highly recommend it :)

    I'm doing a number of OU maths courses and this is the updated version of the calculator they recommend. The screen size is amazingly large and it shows complex equations with ease - it's easy to use, even though it has hundreds of functions - I've found it invaluable.

    3.0 out of 5 stars The numbers are rubbing off 25 Dec 2012
    By Jimbo
    Verified Purchase
    Good calculator, very easy to use, even the more complicated functions.
    The white numbers have started rubbing off after less than a year, particularly the more used buttons such as = . and the 0.
    Even though I know which buttons they are, I have had to use tipex to write them back in.

    They have come out with a part solar powered calculator -85 which will help with worrying if the battery will run out during an exam, but I have a feeling the numbers coming off will be the same.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy 5 Mar 2012
    Bought this calculater for a distance learning course, which specified the model. I wasn't sure it was worth splashing out on ANOTHER calculator, but it has proved beneficial.

    Being able to follow the instructions in the course exactly has made life so much easier, and the calculator is very clear and aids learning. Very happy with the purchase. The screen is easy to read and editing your calculations gives you so much freedom.
