As I started studying engineering, I knew I needed a calculator to help me out.
I left my favorite calculator at Mexico, the one I bought on 2002. The good thing is that I know it’s safe because one of my best friends at Mexico has it.
So, I was calculatorless here and had to do something about it. As I am one weirdo girl who like to buy something that’s useful for long, I thought a graphic calculator was a great idea.
And indeed it was. I got the Casio fx-9860G Slim Graphic Calculator and it has been amazing!
I like it because it does what is supposed to. But also gives me a little bit more than what it promised!
I have had it for less than a year and to be honest, I’m still discovering some functions and menus on it.
I got it on Sears El Salvador at Multiplaza.
One of the things I like the most is that is not a big calculator. As you can fold it in half, it seems like it’s make up or something like that and saves a lot of space!
If you’re learning or practicing math, you’re gonna love it. It’ll help you a lot with Algebra, Calculus, Statistics, Probability and Financial Mathematics.
If you’re learning or practicing math + physics or chemistry, this is not the calculator you need. This model doesn’t have any chemistry or physics options.
I don’t know if it’s normal for a graphic calculator to NOT have physics or chemistry functions. This is my first graphic calculator. I mention it because my last calculator, the one is at Mexico, has a lot of options to chemistry and physics. It even had a table with some constant and its value.
But this one doesn’t. So, if you need it for math, you’re gonna love it.
Remember that “just math” is still an immense world. Some things you’re definitely will love in the fx-9860G calculator are: Natural input, graph and tables, dynamic graphs, regression graphs, AP calculus, AP statistics, financial functions, spreadsheet, syntax help, eactivity and onboard function manual!
It uses triple AAA batteries to work but I discovered something recently. It can also work with electricity (instead of just plug in the USB cable, I connected the USB cable to my Nokia charger and it worked even though my batteries are dead, lol!).
What about the price? Well, I think you’ll be happy to know that this graphic calculator is less than $100 USD!
Even though it has its weaknesses, I love how much it has helped me this year!
