If your kid has recently gone back to school, chances are, he or she will soon be asking for a scientific calculator (probably already has!).
The Casio FX-300MS Plus Engineering/Scientific Calculator is a good all-round scientific calculator that will serve well through high school and undergrad math and science classes.
This one takes a 1.5 volt LR44 battery. The add-on program at Amazon brings the price down quite nicely, so it’s a good idea to just buy a spare when you buy your calculator.
- You can see the whole equation at a glance
- Nicely sized buttons
- Large variety of mathematical functions (229, to be precise)
- Fractions can be viewed as fractions or as decimals
- Well priced
- Difficult to see the numbers if the calculator is flat on the table
- Quality Control seems to occasionally miss a defective loose button
All in all, this calculator is a good choice at a great price.
