    Graphing Calculator

    Hey everyone, I am taking pre-calculus w/ trigonometry and I need to get a graphing calculator. I was curious what Graphing Calculator people have if at all.

    Re: Graphing Calculator

    Im hardcore and dont use graphing calculators, rather just a normal Casio fx-100AU calculator.

    edit: unless they specifically said that you need one Id very much doubt that you would need one for a little bit of calculus and trig. Not to mention the fact that you probably wouldnt be allowed to use it in an exam.
    Besides they are slow, its better to learn it and know what you are looking at in your head.

    Ti 84+ SE, nice calculator, but I want the built-in USB to get working with Linux.

    Mine is a Casio fx-9750G Plus. Bought it at Wally World for around $50US I think.

    Re: Graphing Calculator

    I think most universities require you to have at least TI-83 if you take a calculus class! But if you are major in science, then definitely TI-83 or above and also need to know how to use one of those math programs like mathematica, maple, or matlab... (And yes, those three are available for Linux as well!)
    In the world of Linux, who needs Windows and Gates...

    Got most of my golden beans at an auction on eBay (with a couple of free drinks).

    Re: Graphing Calculator

    When I took Calculus A+B, graphing calculators weren't required or allowed on exams. My class had to do some work with Maple. However, I like yacas, which is Free Software, better.

    Re: Graphing Calculator

    When I did my engineering studies yrs ago Casion FX-5500L scientific calculator worked just fine. Some people went out and brought these fancy mega$$$ calculator that could basically do just about anything but be used in exams. When it came to exam times these guys were kinda lost... I sometimes think the day the western worlds electronic aids fail they will be a lot worse off than so called 3rd world countries as these days we have become button pushers without understanding how to get to the answer.
