  • Initially students will think only of the seven times table as these are the most obvious multiples of seven. As these are exhausted more creative students will come up with larger multiples such as seven thousand or fourteen million. Calling the register in a “random” order can be adapted to calling the register in an order which will allow the weaker students to suggest the easier answers while challenging the more able to be more creative.

Casio Classwiz Calculator

There is currently a lot of talk about this new calculator being the best in its price range for use in the Maths classroom. The new ClassWiz features a high-resolution display making it easier to view numerical formulas and symbols but it isn't a graphical calculator as such (it has the capacity to draw graphs on your smart phone or tablet, via a scannable QR code and an app).

As well as basic spreadsheet mode and an equation solving feature you also get the ability to solve quadratic, cubic or quartic polynomial inequalities and the answer is given just as it should be written down, using the correct inequality symbols!

This calculator has a high-performance processor and twice the memory of previous models ensuring speedy operation and superior computational power.more...
