Christ, I remember having to ask for one of these for an Xmas or birthday present!

That's a great deal but sadly of no use for A-Levels since that prefers a natural display. The Casio with natural displays are very recommended over these. These are more glorified normal calculators.

forgive my ignorance here, as I'm nearly 40 yrs old. but how does the display have any thing to do with how accurate a calculator is.

This 'worked out' to be a good deal

Do not buy biggest load of rubbish ever ,purchased 1 few weeks ago cheap plastic crap and wouldn't turn on threw it in the bin to ashamed to take it back for the sake of £1.50

I had a programmable TI calculator in school, the pinnacle of my programming excellence was to automate and loop 5138008 on screen, awesome.

Things here don't quite add up.

This went straight over my head at first. Now I'm laughing at the joke and myself for missing it.

Thank you

I remember in high school all my classmates would get a new calculator when their one stopped working. I was in no such lucky position but that makes you resourceful...I realised they just take normal AA batteries, I opened mine up and changed the battery(stole them from the TV remote..sshhh!)
You weren't taking it back for the sake of £1.50, you were taking it back for the sake of it didn't work, what's to be ashamed of in that?!

​A natural display will give answers as fractions or in terms of pi thereby giving a more accurate answer as trailing decimals are not rounded. E. G. Cos 30 will be given as (root 3)/2 all displayed as you would write it. Natural displays are much better for modern A level and GCSEs questions.

Abacus anyone?

So they don't learn how to simplify fractions/roots anymore and just type it into a calculator? Meh.

Why not have Mathematica/Maple on a phone/calculator today - that would help to solve/simplify integrals, polynomial expressions and other kind of symbolic computations. I think there is value understanding the rules and math behind that.
