Calculator is perfect for advanced algebra, trigonometry, computer science, chemistry and statistics. One- and two-variable statistics include results for linear regression and trend line analysis. Adds, subtracts, multiplies and divides fractions entered in traditional numerator/denominator format. Three memories, 10 English/metric conversions and eight physical constants. Runs on solar power. Calculator includes protective slide case.
Math students will appreciate TI36X's ability to perform fractional equations and calculate angle units (radians, grads, degrees) when performing trigonometric functions. Everyone will find the calculator's English/metric conversions helpful.
The TI36Xs single-line LCD is a little difficult to read when the unit is lying on a desk, and users in need of graphing functions will have to look elsewhere. Overall, however, for a calculator in this price range, the TI36X provides enough power for most high-level math and science needs.
