The technology is designed to help users take a visual approach to exploring and understanding the maths curriculum. With the ability to display graphs, analyse statistics and perform a range of calculations, it opens up new ways to enhance your teaching and strengthen student understanding.

Benefits of the scientific calculator emulator

The online scientific calculator emulator available within ClassPad can help you save valuable time in the classroom, engage your students and strengthen vital skills.

It has many potential applications that can benefit teachers and students alike, including the ability to plan lessons with sticky notes of exam questions and live modelling of operations such as inputting trigonometric functions, fraction calculations and decimal conversions.

Accessible from anywhere
ClassPad is fully web-based, meaning all you need to access it is a registered account, a web browser and an internet connection.

Stronger engagement
There’s no denying the learning and engagement benefits of visual stimulation. This is something our scientific calculator emulator excels at thanks to features such as digital sticky notes and shape creation functions.

Supports both independent and collaborative learning
Being able to see the teacher’s shared calculator screen and also access their own device gives students autonomy over their learning, as well as the ability to help and work with their peers.

Builds calculator confidence
The more familiar and comfortable students are with their calculator, the better prepared they will be to use this tool effectively in exams.
