Outstanding calculator for any middleschool, highschool or college student.
Pros: So much easier to use than ANY Ti-XX calculator Bright color backlit screen Completely intuitive interface, even if only slightly technically inclined Comes with USB cable to update OS and add apps/data tables White numeric keys Absolutely does not require a "teacher" to explain how to use it (unlike every Ti-XX, which requires instructions in math text books plus additional teacher tech support, just to learn the obtuse TI keystrokes)
Cons: I would prefer all buttons to be white with colored lettering, rather than black with colored lettering
Misc: I'm dumbfounded when I hear stories of students returning Casio models and replacing them with Ti models, simply because the school teachers tell the students they don't know how to use a Casio...@@ They're totally missing the point!!! ... You don't need a teacher to explain it to you because Casio's are so much more intuitive and easy to use!
My three older kids all used the Casio FX-CG10 all through high school into college (calculus, chemistry, physics) and noted how much simpler the keystrokes were on their CG10's than all of their peers Ti's. My fourth son is using the CG50 because it is simply the newer version of the CG10.
