    Hi.

    I'll be doing AQA Mathematics and AQA Further Mathematics A Levels in September and I need to purchase a graphic calculator. Which one is best? Price is not an issue here, however I know that some calculators are banned by regulators so I don't know which one to buy.

    Preferably, I would like to purchase from Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb...hic+calculator

    Although, if there is something better I'd probably be willing to buy elsewhere, but Amazon is most convenient.

    Thanks guys.

    Please for the love of maths dont use one. Not only are all A-level questions straightforwards enough for you not to need one, but they will get you to think that little bit less about the questions which will be bad in the long run. However I am aware there are changes to the syllabus, but I cant see why a graphical calculator would be necessary. I would understand a calculator that can handle large data sets for stats or something would be useful but the act of plotting a graph shouldn't require it.
