Graph in 3D with Casio's PRIZM fx-CG50

The PRIZM fx-CG50 by Casio is a new new graphing calculator. And that means lots of great new functions like 3D graphing, an improved catalog function, and a new case design to offer easier use. With the 3D graphing capabilities you can more easily draw 3D graphs such as planes, cylinders, and spheres, and view them from various angles. It still amazes me how far the calculator has come from when I was in school. I'm not going to say how long ago that was, but I will say we were just starting to get into advanced mathematics equation functions. I also have to say I like how easy it is to use. Your basic buttons are a little larger at the bottom so you have all of your primary calculator functions right there. Then you have the additional buttons a little smaller above those. This is definintely going to come in handy when my son starts college a year from now for sure!

High-resolution color LCD with full textbook-style display

*As of October 7, 2010, for the pixel resolution and color reproduction of calculators. According to a survey by Casio Computer Co., Ltd.
**Using repetition of the following one-hour sequence: Menu display for 5 minutes, Run-Matrix mode calculation for 5 minutes, flashing cursor in Run-Matrix mode for 50 minutes. Based on default settings for display brightness and auto power off. (Refer to the Specifications for exact settings).

Picture Plot enables learning from real-life pictures

PRIZM fx-CG10 Graphing CalculatorPicture Plot enables users to create their own graphs over pictures displayed on the color LCD. PRIZM™ comes with 55 types of color pictures that users can create graphs over, such as a picture of the parabola of jets from a water fountain and an image sequence of a clock’s pendulum movement. Users can perform regression calculations from the completed graphs to enhance their understanding of math functions.

Multitude of functions that leverage the color LCD

PRIZM fx-CG10 Graphing CalculatorColors can be added to a multitude of graphing objects including dotted lines, circles, and bars, as well as grid lines on graphs, labels of coordinate axes, and coordinate values displayed during tracing. The Color Link function links the colors used in graphs to the designated values in the spreadsheet screen, to aid the visual comprehension of trends and changes in values. PRIZM™ automatically color-codes brackets when entering equations with multiple brackets, as a visual aid to facilitate the entry of complex equations.
