    My Casio FX 83GT+ has been with me since Y8 and it's perfect in every way.

    An unbreakable bond has been formed, I hope it lasts me for many years to come.

    Well, I don't know if Texas Instruments is well-known in the UK, but the TI-84 series is widely used here in the US. It's very powerful and stops just short of being a Computer Algebra System, which isn't allowed. The UK might have more restrictions on graphing calculators, in which case it wouldn't be allowed in your country.

    I'd highly recommend a graphical calculator for statistics as it saves you a hella lot of time and effort in the exam.They can be really expensive though; the one I'd bought was around £64, and it isn't very good at normal functions, as it looks very messy when ttrying to use things like fractions, so I have to use a standard calculator for a lot of stuff.

    Haven't done any A2 modules yet, so can't really tell you about that.

    Also, I've read how you're a little confused on some definitions.
    Differentiation- it is a little method you use to help you find the gradient of a curve on a graph.
    Integration- it's used to help you find the area under a curve on a graph.



    EDIT: I wrote 'lines' instead of 'curves', idek why, but I've changed it now.

    great, thanks for the definitions, they'll come in handy soon when the textbook doesnt get to the point i'll also look into the graphical calc

    I want to find a calculator that can help me with A level maths. i used to have a canon one but lost it :cry: and i forgot the model, it was a calculator that i was very comfortable with, i know a lot of the buttons and its function. i had to replace it with a casio fx-83GT plus which is ok, but i dont feel content with it (probably because im still mourning about the loss of my canon one :rofl: oh and the one i currently have doesnt have a solar panel, i feel like it could die on me in exams and i wouldnt be able to use it lol)

    what calculator do you use and i heard a graphical one is good for C2 or something? ive never used a graphical calc before so im not sure which ones are good :P
    I've been using a Texas TI-84+ Silver Edition since my GCSEs. I've never had any problems with it. It takes time to get used to but it's really very handy! I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Those aren't correct definitions.

    Differentiation gives the gradient at a point of any curve.... You dont need to use it for lines :/

    And integration can be used to find the area under curves, again not required for lines :/

    Oh, by lines I did mean curves. I'll change it then.
