Ready to learn new tech skills in 2022?

 

Teaching with a graphing calculator adds a new dimension to your maths lessons. Discover the benefits of going graphic in your classroom.

We know a solid foundation in maths unlocks opportunities for your students; it opens doors for exciting careers in science, finance, design, and so much more. Using graphing calculators in the classroom empowers learning. Students are better enabled to experiment, stretch their understanding and learn at their own pace — there's no need to tie maths lessons to 'when the computer room is available' anymore.


Why now’s the time to go graphic

Graphing calculators help students link concepts by quickly moving between different visual and numeric representations. Although software can replicate the visual it can’t easily represent the numeric. And, unlike graphing software, these benefits can literally be carried into the exam hall.

By bringing graphing calculators into your lessons, you can:

  • Boost the chances of A-level success for your students
  • Ignite student curiosity and grow engagement
  • Create a more exciting learning experience

Students retain information better in stimulating environments, so as a teacher, you’ll find that your lessons are more productive when using graphing calculators.


Teachers choose the Casio fx-CG50

Teachers recognise the benefits of using the fx-CG50 in the classroom. One teacher shares how “learners, who are less confident in attempting a hard problem, can visualise it when using the graphic calculator. It gives them an entry onto the problem.”

With a Casio fx-CG50 graphing calculator, students can:

  • Plot and analyse graphs and their transformations
  • Build data charts and calculate statistics
  • Plot and evaluate probability distributions

Graphing calculators are the perfect fit for post 16 and secondary learning. It’s why you’ll increasingly spot the fx-CG50 in A-Level maths classes.

The Casio fx-CG50 is the graphing calculator of choice for more and more teachers — and while it’s incredibly user-friendly and packed with useful features, you need to be confident with it if you’re going to use it in classes.
