Best Scientific Calculator I've Ever Used!

5

All through my high school career I've used Texas Instrument calculators. Texas Instrument is an extremely high quality brand that takes pride in their calculators. Throughout most mf my High School career I used the TI-30 XIIS Scientific Calculator, as it was the manditory calculator, and for a good reason. I've used other scientific calculators in the past, and a lot of them were difficult to use, and hard to make out what was on the screen. This however is NOT the case with the Texas Instrument TI-30 XIIS Scientific Calculator. This calculator is extremely easy to use, slim size, very easy to reed the screen, and extremely durable. I myself own 2 of these calculators. 1 for school and one for home use. In addition to great performance, the TI-30 XIIS Scientific Calculator comes in multiple different colors. Some of the many colors available include, Red, Blue, Dark Blue, Orange, Green, and Pink. Overall I highly recommend this calculator, as it helped me all throughout my High School career, and is an overall dependable calculator!

The TI 30XIIS is the bomb!

This calculator has saved me many times! I love this calculator because it is so compact, but it really gets the job done. A few years ago, I had to take a big examination to become a licensed engineer. When it was time to take the test, this little calculator was what I was allowed to use . Graphing calculators were not allowed on the test. Up to this point, I have relied heavily on graphing calculators, so I was somewhat skeptical. Luckily, my wife had this calculator on hand and I can't believe how great it was! I love that it is similar to a graphing calculator in that you can type a whole equation in and see it. Along with that, I love that you can scroll up and look at previous equations. It makes math very convenient. I would highly recommend this calculator.

An easy to use calculator that gets the job done

5

This calculator is excellent in several ways. First, it is affordable. It has all the necessary scientific and basic functions that every student will need. For a student who does not have use for a graphing calculators functions, this calculator will prove to be the most beneficial. Its thin design means it is easy to carry around and also does not require batteries that can certainly bulk up and make a calculator heavier. This means that this calculator can easily fit in slots of your bag. I have been using this calculator for almost a year and I have had no issues with it. It is very durable and the included snap cover for it is a nice touch which is also aethistically pleasing. This calculator is also a great introduction for younger students into algebra and pre-calculus since it has all the basic functions which can lead students to gain a better grasp on using graphic calculators in the future. As a casual use calculator, I would highly reccomend the TI-30 for its simple design and its slim easy to carry size.

when i first brought this calculator i needed to do a assignment for math and i need it right away or i was going to flunk my class. I went out to the store and i saw these expensive calculators when i only needed a calculator for this one math assignment so i decided to get the Texas Instruments TI-30 XIIS Scientific Calculator and when i checked it out at the service desk i saw that it was reasonalbe price so i happy abot the price. When i got home i took the calculator out the package and i figured out how to work it quickly and i was glad it was not broke. When i began working on the assignment i needed the calculator and i the calculator got me through every single promlem on the assignment and i was really impressed with this product. My brother needed to use this calculator and i told him to let me know if it worked for him and when he was done with it he said that it is a great calculator and we should of brought this a long time ago

Scientific Calculator is simple, yet powerful

4

I have owned this calculator for approximately 4 years, and even though most of my engineering student counterparts are using graphical display Texas Instrument calculators, I find that the 2 line display of this scientific has worked perfectly for me. The buttons are logically arrayed such that computations are quick and simple. The memory function works well for long and tedious calculations that require many steps and numbers. I hardly ever need to write down numbers when doing such calculations. The case slides on and off well and provides protection for the screen. Between the existing batteries and the solar panel I have never needed to worry about power. It seems to have a curve that fits well into the hand and is thin and light enough to be carried in a pocket. It has every function I have ever needed, even with complex engineering calculations. From the math and science student to the house mom who needs to calculate her bills, this calculator is ideal for every situation.

Awesome Calculator

I have one of these calculators, but it is in blue. It's better than all the other Texas Instrument calculators. It could do all your math problems easily.If you couldn't do order of operations, then this would be your calculator. It could do order of operations easily without any hesitation. This calculation could also simplify fractions and turn the fractions to either percents or decimals. this calculator could also square root. Also, it could do trig easily, but you could only use SIN. Turning it off and on is easy. To turn it off press the ON button. To turn it off press the 2nd button and press the On button. This calculator could also go back to your old problem by pressing the arrows. You could also edit the problem by pressing the arrows to edit your mistake. the only thing I hate is when you are trying to edit like when you put 77x66, but instead it is 777x66 the extra 7 will go over the x and you need just retype the problem. Overall, this is one of the best calculators I Owned.

Basic Scientific calculator that works well for computation

4

This calculator works well for basic computations. Also has the ability to compute trigonometric values of sine, cosine and tangent. Also has a fraction button that assists students who struggle with doing basic operations with fractions. This is a blue collar type calculator. Nothing fancy, but it gets the job done.

Good Calculator for Most

Having used both Texas Intruments and Casio scientific calculators, this calculator is practically my very first one as a studentand it is very good! It has a decent amount of functions, and even has a 2nd key to allow for more functions. However, in my belief, this scientific calculator does not have as many features as its competitors have. It is very serviceable for algebra classes, and potentially calculus as well (if you're in calculus, the tricky parts of it is the algebra involved, not the calculus itself). Allowed on the FE/EIT exams for engineers, as well as the standard SATs and what have you, this calculator has a very familiar feel and look to it for most children as teachers advocate the Texas Instruments calculator line of models. In my opinion, it should have a faster cursor. Display is small, allowing only one line to be seen; thus there is no "pretty print" feature available. In essence, it is a serviceable calculator, doing most mathematics that anyone really needs, but there are better options. The TI-multiview is just like this calculator but its larger display and pretty-print makes it better. I'd reccommend that model over this one. But in the end, if you are buying this for your children, ask the teacher what they use since its best for kids to have the same edition as their teachers. Learning with the same calculator helps greatly for children.

TI-30 XIIS is a good scientific calculator

I work in the science field, and we do a lot of math--basic stuff but a lot of conversions and such. When I first came into the field, I needed a calculator. But I felt my TI-86 or TI-83 graphing calculators were too big and unneccessary for the job. I went to some office supplies store and picked up a TI-30X IIS. What attracted me was that it was a Texas Instruments and I already liked TI (I had another scientific calculator in college and was constantly searching buttons--I know TIs more). It is run by solar energy--I hate finding batteries. It has two lines--one for entry and one for the answer. It allows you to put in a decent number of digits, so I don't feel like I leave numbers out or forget to add something. My complaint: sometimes it takes two tries for the button to be pressed. It may be my particular calculator because I don't remember this with my other one. But it is a little pet peeve when you think you pressed the button and now have to go back. However, since it saves the last few entries, it is easy to correct.
