The Casio FX85GTPLUS is the UK’s best-selling solar powered scientific calculator;Allowed in every UK exam where a calculator can be used.Suitable for use from Key Stage 3 4 and above and recommended for GCSE, A/AS level,Standard and Higher;It has 260 functions and is battery powered and has a large 10+2 display;New functions on the GT model are Prime Factorisation,Recurring Decimal and Verify;The Natural Display (Natural-V.P.A.M.) shows mathematical expressions like roots and fractions as they appear in your textbook and this increases comprehension because results are easier to understand
The FX85GTPLUS is the No1 best selling Solar Powered Scientific Calculator in the UK (GFK Data) therefore it is the one to have.This new version takes it on a stage further. It can be used in school, college & University and is approved by the government. It comes with a hard case so it will survive most most of the knocks it may get.The FX-85GTPLUS has all the features and benefits of the previous versions, including Natural display (expression and result appear as in textbook) with the addition of the following.1. New verify function – Checking Tool For Student, e.g. 10 + 2 = 2 + 10 ? Does the left side = right side. 2. Prime Factorisation – Prime Factorization – Latest maths ‘hot topic’ in education. A Prime number is a natural number that has exactly two (distinct) natural number divisors. For example, enter the value 10 e.g. 10 = 2 x 5 and the calculator provides the relevant two number answer. 3. Recurring decimals - Recurring Decimals – highlights on the display a recurring decimal number, e.g. 1 divided by 3 = 0.3333333 now displays 0.30 – which is Standard Mathematical Notation.

I decided to keep this calculator and boy am I glad I did!
Firstly, I found the calculator very easy to use... the buttons are very clear & I liked the fact that Casio have added the orange AC and OFF buttons..adds a bit of colour to the calculator! I presume it will attract a lot of young teens or those studying for their GCSE's/A levels :)
The calculator also does a lot of the work for you... the calculator has the ability to change decimals into root form which comes in handy, & I find the fractions button on this calculator a lot easier (and quicker) to use than on my old calculator.
The Casio FX-85GTPLUS is also solar-powered which should make it very long lasting!
However as I said previously, the calculator does all of the work for you, so for me (an A level Maths student), it's quite easy to become dependent solely on your calculator to convert e.g. decimals into fractions, when really it should be application of your knowledge of the work as well. Also, the plasticky, cheap feel of the calculator might put some people off..
I would still definitely recommend this calculator to anyone... although I think it's definitely geared towards GCSE/A level students more than anything.
It overcomes a serious problem of logic- which I admit Casio disputed- with its predecessor, where 10/3Pi came out at about 10, by dint of its inserting an imaginary * between the 3 and the pi to give 10/3*pi or (10/3)*pi, or about ten. In fact, it should have inserted parentheses to give 10/(3*pi) or about 1. Be warned ! Now one of my standard checks if I'm presented with a random calculator anywhere. Thankfully, the GT plus has overcome this, and gives the right answer, otherwise it would get -69! stars.
As it is, a really good little product. Maybe I'd like a bigger battery but the solar cell is really effective and so this hasn't been a problem.
Oho ! Now I see some people are struggling with the Calculator's logic. Well, there's an easy answer to that- calculators have used at least five different logics over the years; I've owned ones with four, avoiding RPN. The trick is to see what it does and understand what you're doing; also, read the manual, and have an expectation of the answer; most errors are obvious.Read more ›
Obviously 10 is NOT a prime number, so what went wrong here? Somebody overlooked the significance of the word "exactly" in the above definition of a prime number; it should be taken literally, so "exactly two divisors" means 2 divisors, not more, not fewer.
We can see than 10 has exactly 4 divisors: 1, 2, 5, 10.
Exactly four divisors is not exactly two divisors, hence 10 is not a prime number.
In the example quoted above the calculator has returned the prime factors of 10 (of which there are two). This is not the same thing as saying that 10 is a prime number, which it isn't. 2 and 5 are both prime numbers, since they each have exactly two factors, themselves and 1. 1 itself is not prime because it does hot have two factors.
The calculator itself is great. But I would urge any student to be familiar with how to reset the calculator to factory default settings, especially if they rely on a calculator provided by the school in their exams. Another pupil will doubtles have messed with the settings, which can lead to unexpected behaviour (from the calculator - sadly the behaviour of the offending pupil is probably all too expected)
