San Francisco, CA, April 13, 2016 - Casio America, Inc., a leader and innovator in the education space, will be in San Francisco, CA for the National Council of Supervisors in Mathematics (NCSM) Leadership in Mathematics Education annual conference from April 11-13, as well as the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference from April 13-16. During the conferences, Casio will demonstrate new products geared for the classroom, host live interactive presentations and workshops, and show educators how actively focusing on STEAM and STEM can help unify schools’ efforts in educational growth.
“We look forward to being part of two of the biggest mathematics conferences in the industry - NCSM and NCTM,” said Makoto Ori, Senior General Manager of Casio’s Consumer Products Division. “Participating in both events enables us to speak directly with educators from across the country about what they desire most in the classroom and how they can take advantage of our wide range of resources without straining school budgets.”
During the NCSM 2016 conference, mathematics supervisors will get an in-depth look at Casio’s suite of educational products and are invited to attend an interactive mathematics workshop to kick off the first day of the show. On April 11th, supervisors will be instructed on the full capabilities of the probability simulator using Casio’s widely popular fx-CG10 PRIZM calculator in a fun and informative way. Additionally, Casio will teach attendees how to use the QR Code and spreadsheet functionalities on Casio’s FX-991EX scientific calculator.
At NCTM 2016, education professionals will have the chance to experience Casio’s educational tools firsthand, as well as attend engaging mathematics events including interactive work stations at Casio’s booth. Casio will also host an exhibitor workshop on Thursday, April 14th where executives will showcase how the company supports complete solutions for schools including STEM and STEAM professional development, wide-ranging resources and synergistic technologies that provide school-wide benefits. Additionally, there will be giveaways of free lesson plans, calculators, keyboards and projectors, as well as a calculator face-off where attendees can compare Casio to its competitors during a live interactive presentation. During the face-off, everyone in the audience will also receive a free gift and a chance to win a Casio G-SHOCK timepiece.
Key Calculators on Display
In addition to these interactive demonstrations and sessions, Casio’s portfolio of industry-leading calculators will be on display. Casio’s ClassWiz fx-991EX is the industry’s first scientific calculator with spreadsheet functionality, which enables students to create spreadsheets with up to five columns and 45 rows. It also boasts a high-resolution screen and comes equipped with a natural textbook display, which means that mathematic equations and formulas are displayed just as they would appear in a student’s textbook.
Revolutionary among graphing calculators, Casio’s PRIZM fx-CG10 is jam-packed with features that enable students to solve the most challenging equations and enhance their understanding of mathematics, including the world’s first Picture Plot function. The Picture Plot function enables users to plot graphs over pictures of real-life scenes and offers a color LCD with a full textbook-style display. Additionally, the PRIZM includes a multitude of functions that leverage the color LCD in graphing objects like dotted lines, circles and bars, and grid lines.
