    You don't need a graphical calculator to do stats. A standard Casio will do all the stats you need if you know how to use it. It makes much more sense to spend 30 minutes familiarising yourself with the states function on a £10 calculator than to splash out on something more pricey.

    you dont need a graphic calculator, this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/CASIO-FX83ES...9746149&sr=1-1
    is good enough, you can put all the data in tables etc, and on some graphic calculators the a + bx bit is the wrong way round, which is overly confusing

    and stats is so much easier than the people with the other non-graphical one. It's all arranged in nice tables, and gives you the answers like x-bar, standard deviation, mode, etc really easily
