a cheap calculator great for A-level mathematics,
This review is from: Casio FX 85 ES Calculator (Office Product)
battery will last ages (i'm imagining) as there is a solar panel so no fear of it dying in an exam.
Great features include how it will display answers as fractions automatically..great for precise answers, but it is easy to see the answer in decimal format also at the flick of a button.
when in radian mode it gives answers in terms of pie shouls the answer be an exact muliple of pie; this isn't on all calculators but is very useful
also it will always show square roots when the answer is one, but once again you can flick to decimal at the touch of a button should you wish to.
it automatically cancels down things to their nicest form....very useful
the keys are clearly labelled so it is obvious what key does what
easy to type in fractions within fractions
great calculator...more than i'd expect for the money
even more surprising is the table function where one can get readings for graphs for a range of values
i'd recommend to all, particularly since it is allowed by exam boards and makes certain topics a lot easier
