They also come in a fun array of colors that enable students to express their personal style.
Casio’s scientific calculators provide enhanced technological features necessary to solve including fractions to algebraic equations and more. The key fraction and scientific calculators in Casio’s line include the fx-260 and fx-300ES PLUS. The fx-260 is an all-purpose scientific calculator with 144 built-in functions, 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, black and blue, the fx-300ES PLUS is a standard scientific calculator designed for middle school and high school students who are focusing on General Math, Trigonometry, Statistics, Algebra I and II, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, and Physics.

In addition to the standard features of an entry-level graphing calculator, the fx-9860GII has an enlarged display with an optional LCD backlight for ease of view. Designed for grades six through twelve, this calculator offers icon-based menus and a Natural Textbook Display that allows students to view expressions just like they would in a print book. The fx-9860GII also offers a wide variety of graphing tools such as a built-in spreadsheet that can be used for plotting points on a graph or entering x-data and y-data in a table.
The fx-9750GII, available in pink and black, has all of the standard features of an entry-level graphing calculator and can be used by students and educators in middle school, high school and even college. Its icon-based menu is easy to navigate and the soft-menus make it easy to access functionality for common tasks.
