Really, Required?

Very handy for A level statistics and Core maths
What a rip off, the tech hasn't changed for 20+ years.

But you are not allowed it in the exam
Is this a joke? Is it a misprice?

I'd be looking someone to sit the exam for me for £50...

I did my Stats 2, Core 3 and Core 4 exam this month and yes you are allowed the graphical calculator and i used it. Only in Core 1 youre not allowed it.

​AQA
Come on mate. HUKD, how many of this rabble do you think ever saw the business end of a graphical calculator, let alone see the use for it?
I did...... loved. to do Mandelbrot and fractal sets on it..
I purchased mine for £85 through the college for my Pure and Mech A-Level around 15 years ago. Christ I feel old now.
Better stock up on CR3202s I had one like this 20 years ago, was fun programming little games for it. Pretty sure you could serial link some models.
These felt like obsolete tech ten years ago, it's hard to believe they're still requiring them for exams. Surely a locked down basic tablet with whatever the current equivalent of mathcad/matlab would be far more reflective of real world tools and not much more expensive.
How about a price-graph?

Not so sure as some of these apps will allow you write the question out and give you the answer and working out. I think mine did quadratics and I remember doing an argand diagram to figure out some kind of error signal on my calc so it has plenty of scope on its own. If I remember rightly you could program your own routines that would work of simultaneous linear equations.

​did the same around 20 odd years ago, except for the argand routines.

fun times, they are quite clever, surely some type of emulator would be better as a purchased app with some kind of (exam mode that teachers could verify and would only allow certain functionality. for example forced airplane mode, disable home button etc .
I have used some scientific calculator apps with graphing functions and they are similar except they( the ones I used) weren't programmable and also didn't show working out which is nice.

It is pretty much required for S1 and you can use it for any of the core units which allow calculators (PC2 and 4, maybe 3 as well). It's not as useful for those units but you can use it to quickly check intersections on a graph etc.

If the school does S1 and D1 instead of M1 and D1 then you will pretty much need a graphing calculator. It's probably best to buy one from a student who's going to uni though.

We should crowdfund these for Theresa May. She did find a magic money tree after she said there wasn't one!

On a serious note - how are these even relevant or expensive still? A tablet is the same cost!
