It’s hard to believe how quickly the summer came to an end and school came back into session! With four of our kids in high school, the need for a graphing calculator was inevitable. We were very excited to check out the Casio PRIZM Graphing Calculator (model fx-CG50). This graphing calculator is pretty dang cool and so much better than the one I had in high school!

  1. My son just bought a calculator but we did not know about how great this Casio was. I paid a lot and I hope the one i got will get him through High School and the SAT.

  2. Stacie says:

    I love that color LCD screen. When I was in high school, our graphing calculators were just that green screen, and they were definitely much harder to navigate.

  3. Brianne says:

    That is one awesome looking graphing calculator! This looks really easy to use. Casio has always been known for making great calculators.

  4. Margie DQ says:

    Oh this makes me remember my graphing calculator in high school. This one seems much better and easier to use!

  5. That calculator looks like a nice tool. Looks pretty easy to use too

  6. Wow! This is really cool! Would be a great help to teachers and students.

  7. Just found out at the beginning of the week that my daughter needs a graphing calculator at school and I had no idea this was available. Definitely providential that I saw this post. I know she’s going to love this.

  8. Lisa Favre says:

    Wow! Graphing calculators sure do look different from when I was in high school. Casio makes such great calculators already so I am sure this graphing one is state-of-the-art.

  9. Peter says:

    Wow, calculators have certainly come a long way from when I was in school. Love the colour screen

  10. Lynndee says:

    I had a Casio calculator when I was in college, but it did not have a LCD like this. This is sleek. Love the features.

  11. Rachel says:

    This looks way fancier than the calculator that I used in school. It isn’t dot matrix!

  12. Jeanine says:

    Wow this would be perfect for my oldest. I bet he would get a lot of use out of it but I havent a clue even how that would work. Looks interesting!

  13. Kiwi says:

    Wait graphing calculators are still a thing? They were so expensive when I was growing up!

  14. Melanie says:

    This is bringing back some serious memories. My math teacher my sophomore year of high school said I was the best at looking like I was paying attention. I’ve gotten better at focusing, and it looks like the tech has gotten even better too!

  15. Ahhh! My kids aren’t here yet and using these calculators, but next year they will be. I’m not ready!!

  16. I think I like the improved capabilities such as 3D graphing the most. Great review!

  17. Yikes, stats class was NOT my thing – I nearly failed it when I was in college the first time around about 4 decades ago! Looks like stats calculators have come a long way, though, and if I had something like this back then, I would probably have done SO much better!
