I agree, as a maths teacher I would say best buy a casio one instead.

CASIO is king.

Casio GT85 a lot more money % wise in relation to this deal, but still not expensive.

Cold these have been in every pond shop for atleast a year and are absolutely terrible. DO NOT get this if you are studying pay £7 for a Casio

there is only one king

Asda have a casio one for £6 might be worth checking it out.

The Casio fx83 GT plus is far easier to use than most of these cheaper ones and has a few extra functions (such as giving a number as a product of its prime factors). The only difference between the 83 and the 85 is the solar panel. This is still a good deal in a way though, as £1 for a basic calculator is good value. But for GCSE and above, get a Casio (or a Sharp, though personally I prefer the Casio).

What happened to mental arithmetic , slide rules, log tables and the abacus ?

The best thing you can buy your children is a dart board . Very good for teaching to do math in the head !

check with your school before buying most schools have an approved list of calculators that can be used for exams

Try taking your abacus and what not to uni......

Get a Sharp, Casios are a bit fiddly and some of their functions can be hard to find imo

+1 for a Sharp. Had mine all the way through GCSE, A-level, uni and 8 years of engineering and its still going strong.
