The best calculator for engineering students [with demo]

Get the fx570es here: http://amzn.to/1TNSNP6

My new all-time favourite is now the Casio FX-991ES though: http://amzn.to/2pvLnsd (affiliate links)

What is the best calculator? fx-570 ES plus is such a powerful tool, and I just wanted to show off some of the basic, yet extremely useful things I do with it throughout my studies.

I roughly cover:
– Complex Numbers
– SOLVE
– Simultaneous equations
– Integrals + Riemann Sums
– Base conversions

There’s much more info found in the manual.

Does the Casio fx 115 es help with calculus and integration ? And also what’s better the 115es or the 570es??

Barney R. says:

I can see where you are coming from as far as pricing goes, but that aside, how is the Casio fx-570+ better?

Everything you demonstrated in the video that the Casio could do, the 84+ could do in a fraction of the time, as well as a variety of other functions.

I must admit I am biased towards graphics calculators, but I can not see anything that the Casio can do that the TI won’t??

None the less, good video!!

Laynus Socas Torres says:

Have you seen the Casio FX 570EX?

Lalo cura says:

hp 50g and HP Prime are the best

victor otene says:

Have you ever used the casio fxcg20?I have been using it and I believe it is better than the ti84 plus in price per performance. Also it can solve polynomials to a 6th degree and uses colours when graphing.

steveandamyalso says:

The truly best calculator for an electrical engineering student is ACTUALLY an HP 32 series or a an HP 49 series. Yes, I know they are gone, but they really are FAR superior to Casio and TI. I know because I have used all three. I could work any mesh node or mesh current problem with storage devices (capacitors and inductors) in a few minutes flat – without pencil or paper – with my multi-level stack HP RPN calculator.

should i get the fx570es or the fx-991es plus?

what’s name of the right white calculator

iBuyNewStuff says:

Casio have recently released the FX-991EX which is now my all-time favourite calc. http://amzn.to/2pvQaKl. Sexy and powerful.

Falcrist says:

If you’re in North America, the best choices are the TI 36X Pro, Casio fx-115 ES Plus, and HP 35s. Those are what’s available on the FE exam. The HP 35s is programmable, but it’s primarily an RPN machine (which not everyone likes).

Don’t bother with a graphing calculator, even for an engineering degree. You don’t need it.
If you must get a graphing calculator, the best choices are the TI 89, HP 50g, and HP Prime.

Daniel Ferreira says:

HP50g the best

ReadySetMoses says:

No TI 36x-Pro………..

Moi's Med says:

Why not ti nspire

Mos Rus says:

First of all, TI has upgraded their 84 series to the brand new TI-84CE, so unless they don’t sell the new model in Australia, the 84 you are showing, has been replaced by a much better model.
Also the new Casio CLASSWIZ has spreadsheets, an icon driven display, 4th order solvers and QR codes where you can see graphic representations of your data on your smart device. So these devices have newer and improved models.

Fishman says:

I got a Casio FX-9750GII for cheap at a yard sale

Sketch1994 says:

Casio is the de facto standard in my engineering school. The fact they are purely math oriented makes them very easy to use on what else but math and since I saw the 912 classwiz I was sold…unfortunately in my country they only sell in German, which is weird cause I live in Greece!

AL_O0 says:

I use the fx-750ES PLUSfor school, it’s awesome!
Does all the thing I want to do and I can Even type on it!
I can’t use any other calculator, iPhone included!

comic4relief says:

I like the number table feature. Neat.

Dan Hyde says:

Watched this video. I’m buying one! This will save my fucking life

Shi Martin says:

What about HP Prime?

Morsure fatale says:

Listen dudes and dunettes. I improved my maths since I stopped using all these US calculators such as hp, or Texas Instruments which are definetely the most inaccurate calculators ever.

Now I’m using a canon calculator and i can tell , the way I do maths changed and has improved my results at school.

Nicholas Idoko says:

I have the best calculator on Android for high school students, college students, teachers, researchers and professionals – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nickzom.nickzomcalculator

Business Cat says:

The white one on the right is the best because you can do Logx

Matthew Stark says:

If you have the ti-84 there’s no reason to use the Casio. It does everything the Casio does and more. (unless that’s not the case) but all of the functions you showed are included in the TI. Also it’s kind of a weird comparison considering the TI is a graphing calculator and the others are not. That being said the TI it horribly overpriced. I’d suggest the TI-Nspire CAS if you have the money. It does indefinite integrals and such.

Lucas Leong says:

My school uses fx42au

vangelis skandalos says:

I think it’s better to use the calculator that’s on our phones because it’s easier to use and we can enter as many digits as we want. On calculators like those, we can enter only up to a specific number of digits and that’s a disadvantage.

Miguel Chavez says:

I haven’t tried the newer casio models but I completely agree. I bought mine a semester ago, and haven’t touched the ti84 since.

Shiny Parie says:

Thank you for the awesome review! Just a quick question, I got the Casio FX-100AUS Plus, which is the same as the 570ES Plus i think. I’m having trouble with getting answers in surd form…it always comes up as decimal/fraction. Any suggestions anyone?

Phinearion Sherflynn says:

You should use Casio FX-570VN PLUS. Unfortunately, you must go to Vietnam to buy it.

Elias C.Gomes says:

can we solve matrix equations 3×3 with complex coefficients with Casio? because in electrical circuits we got this a lot.

iBuyNewStuff says:

Hey all, I wrote a small blog post about this here if you’re interested!

Gloria Lopez says:

Can the fx-570es graph? i need to know cause seriously I don’t know how to use it! HELP

Nico Rücker says:

I’ve got the Casio fx991DE PLUS and it’s even better
