Saw this advertised in Leeds today on one of their window posters, assume it's national.

Great price, heat added.

I just bought this 3 weeks ago for my son...and paid full price. ..heat added anyway

Get the silver one. Its about 15£ but it'll last you through A-levels/uni and will be very useful then as it can commute functions that this one can't Eg integration/differentiation/finding roots of a quadratic and so on...

This one will also last you through A-Levels. The silver one mentioned doesn't support recurring decimals as well as this one.

Everytimw I see "Ryman" I always think of Rayman the PS1 game.

I think you're being irrational.

(Not quite the same thing but let me have it for gag purposes :D)

This calculator will no longer be sufficient for A level Maths for students starting from September 2017 due to the removal of statistical tables from examinations. Casio will be releasing a new model soon (known as the classwiz and available through import at the moment) which has the required statistical functions. This is a great calculator for up to GCSE level so a good deal

So could you please clarify if the examaning body are removing statistical tables or adding some sort of statistical functions? Sorry if I'm being dumb but I'm not sure if you're adding or taking away LOL.

Hi Marty, sorry I was a bit tired when I typed the message, let me clarify: At the moment students can use a book of statistical tables in A level exams to look up values (or they can avoid statistics completely by choosing different modules!). These values can also be found using the functions on an appropriate calculator (mostly graphical calculators or new models of scientific calculator which students are also allowed to use, not this particular model though). In September 2017 a new, linear, A level in Mathematics begins where statistics is compulsory. One of the stated requirements for this new A level is that students are expected to have a calculator with statistical functions needed to find values. Therefore there will no longer be a booklet of statistical tables used in exams. This fine model of a calculator doesn't have all the required statistical functions students would need for the statistics questions in the new A level. I would highly recommend this calculator to anyone taking maths up to GCSE level, but be aware that a new calculator will be required for any student continuing to A level maths. Sometimes however schools may have certain models of calculators which are preferred or can get bulk orders to sell to students which work out cheaper since schools do not pay VAT.
