“Everybody has a Casio fx-CG50 that they’re able to use in their lessons. I’ve seen this used really powerfully with some of the most vulnerable and most disavantaged students in mathematics.”
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?
“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.”
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.”
Maths Teacher & Education Support Specialist
“It makes them better mathematicians, it makes them make links.
So I think to see that in your classroom, when the students are asking their own questions, they are becoming mathematicians.”
