Casio Calculator Pricing

The idea for this all started in June 2017. With new calculators for A Level and much parental confusion about what Year 7 students should be buying, I asked:



So here it is!


These are the current UK prices for the 3 newest models of Casio calculator for schools.

You will find cheaper prices on eBay and Amazon for some products, but they may be from overseas, not contain UK manuals, or be programmed in a different language. Bulk orders may incur customs duty.

Thanks to Graham Cumming of Edexcel for the extra publicity. If you teach Edexcel Maths qualifications and don't already get his support (emails, access to Emporium etc) then contact him on mathsemporium@pearson.com.


Let me know if you see any cheaper deals: email adamcreen@hotmail.com or tweet @adamcreen
