CGP-700 Compact Grand Piano
Casio’s CGP-700 Compact Grand Piano™ boasts a high-resolution Color Touch Interface™, a premium icon-based 5.3” touch display that makes exploring the CGP-700 both simple and fun. The CGP-700 features Casio’s world-class Tri-Sensor 88-note scaled hammer action keyboard with simulated ebony and ivory textured keys, providing the weight and resistance of an actual grand piano. Four speakers are located in the top panel of the CGP-700, and two additional speakers are located in the included wooden stand. Ideal for piano lessons and music labs, the CGP-700’s two headphone jacks are located on the front panel. The keyboard can be placed in “Duet” mode, allowing a student and teacher (or two students) to play, each with their own middle C. Stereo audio recording and playback are available via USB, and the built-in 16-track recorder is perfect for songwriting. The CGP-700 is available for a MSRP of $799.99.
PRIZM fx-CG10 Graphing Calculator
Revolutionary among graphing calculators, Casio’s PRIZM fx-CG10 is jam-packed with features that enhance students’ understanding of mathematics. While conventional graphing calculators require students to create graphs by inputting equations, the PRIZM offers a new way to learn by giving students the opportunity to create their own graphs over pictures of real-life scenes with the world’s first Picture Plot function. This helps students understand the functions from the graphs that they created on their own. Additionally, the calculator features a color LCD with a full textbook-style display, as well as a multitude of functions that leverage the color LCD in graphing objects like dotted lines, circles and bars, and grid lines. The PRIZM fx-CG10 is available for a MSRP of $129.99.
