Casio’s color calculators include two of Casio’s widely popular fraction and scientific calculators, the fx-260 and fx-300ESPLUS. The fx-260 is an all-purpose scientific calculator with 144 built-in functions, now available in pink and black. It is small enough to fit in a student’s pocket but strong enough to solve polynomial and trigonometric equations.

Available in pink, blue and white, the fx-9750GII is an easy to use, durable calculator that provides probability, regressions, and unit conversion functions as well as pie charts and bar graphs. Designed for grades six through twelve and available in pink and gray, the fx-9860GII offers a large, high-resolution screen with icon-based menus. The fx-9860GII also has a LCD backlight for superior visibility when viewing in a dim environment. Furthermore, it provides enhanced technological features such as a built-in spreadsheet which includes a graphing function that can be used for problems that require plotting points on a graph or entering x-data and y-data in a table.
