In this review I talk about calculators and how the new Scientific calculators with a textbook view format make it far easier to enter algebra expressions.

I talk about the maths tutorials I would I like to run using applied maths to make learning easier and fun if folks are interested.

I also mention the the Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX CAS (Computer Algebra System) calculator that I would like to purchase.

You used to work at HP!!?

Bravo Well Done Thank You

I have the casio 991es plus

I have the Casio fx-991 ES (not the fx-991 ES Plus), and it has the same behaviour as the shown HP calculator for the input of numerator and denominator of the desired fraction. I guess I would believe Casio fx-115 ES will also be the same.

Else, this guy youtube /user/Sujoyn70 has nice videos showing use of Casio fx-991 ES which can be of good use for the Plus versions as well.

Which calculator do you prefer the TI-30XS multiview or the Casio fx-115es plus?

I own the Ti-30XS multiview and it is my favorite calculator I own

in the real world the sharp is the best at least in my case

Hi. Did you already start with the math tutorials?

Does anybody know an app for Android for calculating in that “view” or expression mode? Exactly like the TI30XS. 🙂 Thank you! 🙂

VBlogMag CAN YOU HELP ME PLEASE!’.COOL VIDEO!.EXCUSE ME THIS A IS A GOOD JOB , BUT I WOULD KNOW : WHICH IS THE BEST SCIENTIFIC NON GRAPHING CALCULATOR BETWEEN THE TI-36XPRO AND A CASIO OR A HP !?.

AND IF YOU CAN suggest me WHICH BETWEEN THIS MARKS IS THE BEST ! AND WHY!’?

is cello 991 es comparable to casio 991 es calculators?

great comparison!!!!

Good review, I’d like to have seen more capabilities than just ergonomics. You do make a case for Casio as the OEM for HP. The TI is a better interface, but its made for high school math. The Casio is college level and is the only one shown approved for the license engineer exam in the USA see ncees.org / exams / calculator-policy

Can you solve area, perimeter, and volume problems with the TI-36X PRO?

interesting Thanks

Incredibly useful video. Helped me make my choice. If you listen closely, his voice sounds like Martin Septim from the Elder scrolls.

You can change contrast on casio by pressing shift and mode then go down and hit the 7. Now you can change the contrast by pressing left or right 😉

Very excellent video. Thank you for making this.

Indeed the smartclac was the underdog but you havent seen the 300s+

Gooood GOD , man.. get to the point ! How about demonstrating how to enter a complex number in either form in each calculator , consecutively? And how to convert to Polar or Rectangular from the other form as well ???. You mention that exact thing at first and of dothmy heart swell in anticipation… but twas not love’s season and I was soon praying for early death ( not necessarily mine ) as the minutes became hours while I crawled through this entire video from Mars and still never saw or heard how to do exactly that. Who cares if the keys are ” squishy ” ?!? Sweet weeping Deity , just spit it out already.

I have all these calculators except the HP and only the TI 35 and one , and only one , of the Sharps models are easy and straight forward for entering complex coordinates.( One Sharps is fine but not any of the other Sharps … Just try to guess which ones to avoid from agonizing through this video .You’ll buy an abacus instead. If you must watch (incredibly gullible optimist or gleefully self-hating masochist that you must be ! ) Keep the Suicide Hotline number handy and stay safe out there.

( Don’t you just hate it when people write with parenthesis all over their message ( like this ) ) ? It’s almost as irritating as his video never getting to the point, isn’t it ? )

P.S. Did you ever manage to pass your Extra exam ? If so.. PLEASE limit your QSO’s to the topic at hand and FOCUS so the rest of us can actually get some operating time. I know you meant well but talkative NE informative.

73.

No HP35?

i have the Casio fx-300ES PLUS which can be found at walmart for $10 this is just like the Casio in the video but cheaper and has everything that calculator has

Im 14, and I have the TI-30xs in this video, and I love it, its great 🙂

Thank you, review really appreciated!

Can’t wait yo get the nspire!

Just bought a casio fx85gt plus and it feels so cheap and flimsy the buttons move around in their holes

Which do you strongly recommend for calculus? I’m leaning to the Casio though

Thanks for the video! I personally use the TI 36x Pro. Only certain calculators are allowed on the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam, and my college only allows engineers to use calculators that are allowed on this exam. Overall, it is a really great calculator!

Casio I would recommend

I’ve really liked the casio, I havent used any other for 6 years I think. I got a sharp this fall because common buttons are getting worn out and the store didnt have any natural view casio. I basically just went back to the worn out casio for awhile because I find the button layout and labels easier to use and it doesnt care if I do (-) or – . For sharp I have to hunt for the button and I keep getting syntax error. Of course the sharp may just need a bit of practice after having used casio exclusively, but I was on to the casio right away. I dont plan on ever going back to singe line displays.

I noticed something else about Casio and HP. Even when the keys are not in the same place, the shift-functionality of the key is the same. Example: parenthesis keys are located differently, but on both the shift-function to ( is %. The shift function to 0 is on both RND, the shift function to 1 is on both STAT, to 9 it’s CLR, the shift function to AC is OFF, the shift function to ANS is DRG. And i know some shift-functions commonly match because it’s the most obvious place for them, but these in particular are too arbitrary to just be a coincidence. They must come from the same parts bin down to some parts of the firmware.

that hp 300s is a totall shit for calculator. I have bought 2 of these and both of them and after a short period of time they have dead lines on the screen. Save your money and dont buy that blue shit

Calculator++ Fx by graficlux can do vector calculations like projection, cross, dot products, vectors angle, unit vector, convert between polar cylindrical spherical and rectangular forms, matrix calculations like determinants, rank, inverse, transpose, LU, QR decomposition, ref, rref, can solve systems of lynear equations, draw graphs, and much more, check it on youtube.

Casio fx-991ES is the best <3 :")

I have the earlier model Casio fx-991ES (bought in 2005). Unlike the PLUS version that you have, on the older version you have to first press the fraction key, then enter the numerator followed by the denominator. Basically exactly the same as the HP quirk you showed. I think Casio only changed this for the PLUS version back in 2011 or something.

i just realised, how crappy my calculator is……….

I am used to have the Casio calculator in school, it worked okay and that’s what i bought after school to have a calculator during my time in university and for my own personal needs. However i bought a little more powerful newer model we didn’t have in School but still without the programming feature.

But for my personal needs and at work i usually use my PC running GNU bc, WxMaxima, LibreCalc, some programming languages and the calculators shipped with Windows and KDE (in Linux) in scientific mode today.

Thus i rarely use my Casio calculator nowadays.

But it’s still handy if the PC is not running, but this does rarely happen and if it does, i often use my smartphone to do some small calculations.

EDIT:

I also want to mention, that i would never by a calculator without scientific functions. Buying simple basic calculators without these functions is for me like throwing money out of the window. Completely useless.

I own an fx-991ES (not the plus version) and I can clearly see the fraction behavior being like that on both mine and the HP, so this has led me to believe that calculator ripped off CASIO’s fx-82ES calculator. I bet I could glitch it out like the regular fx-ES series.

Great video!

Where TI is better than Casio.

-More memory

-Better navigation keys

Where Casio is better than TI .

– It is more powerful due to its SOLVE function

– It has many features like Table, Equations, Matrix, Vector, HEX and Bin etc..

– Smaller

– Cheaper

So this is why I prefer Casio.

i got fx-350es and from what i see in this vid it’s nearly 1:1 in functionality to the hp 300s (it has the same problem with fractions). i’m thinking of getting fx-991es+ though as 350es lacks in functionality for nearly all the engineering courses and its not all that much more expensive for something that can do calculus, matrixes and complex numbers operations

Thankyou for a well-presented and informative video, which confirmed my choice of the Casio (the Sharp triangular editing cursor would drive me nuts!)

texas wins by far I tell you

Which one would you recommend for high school algebra 2 9 th grade
