DOVER, NJ (DECEMBER 3, 2012) — Casio America, Inc.’s fx-115ES PLUS, fx-9860GII and PRIZM™ calculators have all been selected as a University Business 2012 Readers’ Choice Top Product. The winners were selected by the editors of University Business from nominations submitted by the readership of the magazine, and were based on both the quantity of nominations and the quality of reader descriptions.
“We are honored that several of our calculators are included in University Business Magazine’s 2012 Readers’ Choice awards,” said Andrew Zweig, general manager of Casio’s Consumer Products Division. “We take great pride in enhancing mathematics education in the United States and will continue to pioneer ground-breaking technology that allows teachers and students to attack STEM-driven curriculum from multiple fronts.”
“Most of my students have adopted Casio’s fx-115ES PLUS because of its extensive list of features and capability at a price point that makes it affordable for everyone,” said Dr. Michael K. Swanbom, lecturer of mechanical engineering at Louisiana Tech University. “Additionally, the PC emulator software is a supremely useful tool in showing my students solutions to real engineering problems right down to the actual keystrokes on a calculator. The intuitive user interface of this calculator has a fast and easy learning curve, enabling me to happily recommend it to students.”
The complete list of products has been announced online and is in the December issue of University Business magazine.
The first annual University Business Readers’ Choice Top Products award recognizes leaders in the higher education industry and provides university leaders and administrators with the unique opportunity to learn what products their colleagues around the country are using, and how these products contribute to the success of their schools.
“We are pleased to announce the first-ever University Business Top Products list and plan to make it a yearly feature,” says University Business Editor-in-Chief Tim Goral. “The nominations came from a variety of university administrators who have shared their experiences with these products and how they have improved the way their school operates.
