Campaign - What IF - Graphic - Sceptic - Casio Calculators
Bernard Murphy explains why students are disadvantaged without access to graphic calculators.

What If?

“If all students had access to a graphing calculator then mathematical learning would improve and they could perform to their potential in exams. ”

What If?
All your students had access to a graphic calculator?

Are you a teacher that is sceptical or undecided on graphing calculators? Perhaps you believe in their value but struggle to convince your colleagues and leadership team?

Many teachers know the benefits of graphing, but simply cannot justify or find a way to budget for them – given the challenges of equity in UK schools.

The belief of many teachers and experts is that graphic calculators enhance learning in such significant ways, that without them students are at a disadvantage – simply by not having agency to access the learning. More than that, graphing technology enables students to comprehend maths in a wholly deeper and more impactful way.

We spoke to a selection of maths teachers and experts, to gain their insights and also illustrate how Casio can genuinely help in getting you started in graphing technology adoption.

What If graphic calculators could improve your classroom, forever?

Assistant Headteacher

“I then had to explain and show the effect it had on my small group…
the higher up you go the more interested they are in results… if you can show that and prove that, they’re willing to take the risk.”

Rhiannon Rainbow
Improvement Lead & ECT Coordinator

“School budgets are very very tight…
speak to your SENCo, speak to your equity champion, speak to your raising standards lead… you might just have enough to get started with your pilot.”

Rose Jewell
AMSP Area Coordinator & Senior Examiner

“That’s a great mathematician question, what if…
and on your calculator you can find out what if really quickly. The calculator will keep up with you, and you can really enhance learning with that.”
