A Level

STUDENTS AND PARENTS

At A-level you’ll be learning areas of maths you’ve not yet encountered. There will be new and more complex types of calculation. You will need at least an advanced scientific calculator to cover the minimum syllabus requirements.

Maths is a visual subject, and graphs form a significant part of A-level. A graphic calculator allows you to draw and analyse graphs. This will give you a significant advantage in lessons and exams. Our recommended graphic calculator is the fx-CG50.

SCIENTIFIC OR GRAPHIC CALCULATOR?

There are two main types of calculator: scientific and graphic. A scientific calculator can only be used for calculation. A graphic calculator makes calculations, shows surds as exact answers and displays graphs. Maths is a visual subject, so the graphic calculator gives you a big advantage for learning and also in exams.

All Casio scientific and graphic calculators are allowed in exams.
