  • The eleven times table has always been very easy to learn up to 9 x 11. Here's a way of multiplying large numbers by 11 too:
    Example:
    Q. What is 324 x 11 ?
    A. Write down the first digit ... 3
    .......Add the first and second digits ... 3 + 2 = 5
    .......Add the second and third digits .. 2 + 4 = 6
    .......Write down the last digit ........... 4
    The answer is 3564.
    Try it yourself ... multiply 543 by 11
    Do you know why it works?
    Does it work for all three digit numbers?

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...
