Hi, guys. i just wanted to ask if having a graphical calculator would be a help for C3 and C4. Does it draw the graph for functions like In x and would it save time in the exam to use that calculator. Or is it just a waste of time as I have to learn how to use it.

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

It would only help you to verify your answers, you cannot just write out the solution without any working

Check the edexcel website as they give a list of accepted calculators

I'm pretty sure you can't if it gives algebraic solutions (as it tells you x) and I think that includes graph sketching too

My friend took a more advanced calculator in the exam than the normal one everyone uses and I know it got taken off him because it was algebraically graphical so /:

It really depends on your college/school. Mine did allow any calculators but of course you are advised not just to give the final answer, you also need to show your working

Yes it helps massively.
I completed A level math last year and my graphic calculator (casio FX-9750G11) allowed me to virtually check all of my answers for C3 and most in C4.
It was extremely helpful but bear in mind for A level math it is not essential.
Check out the rules for them by the JCQ.
Basically, just don't get one that uses CAS. They would say so if they are allowed in exams too.
