hi everyone, i was waondering if anyone knows of any useful functions and buttons etc that would be helpful for A-level maths and physics?
i've looked in the manual and it all seems very advanced, i'm just trying to make the exams a little easier by being able to check answers etc.

The differentiation and integration capability - invaluable for checking results especially of integration between limits and results from the trapezium rule
Table mode, to generate a table of values for a function, can be used to help with sketching and can be used with the factor theorem (mode table) and with trapezium rule. You need to be able to find the X button - shift )
The equation solver - to solve quadratic and cubic equations (mode eqn)
You'll need the nCr button for binomial expansion
The log to any base button helps solve problems in bases other than 10 and e
The stats functions are not particularly useful as exam questions tend to be designed to confer no real advantage in using them, you have to show your working anyway and it's usually quicker to do it without them.
