I was wondering, what's the best calculator for engineers that is good to use for Calculus and Physics.

Enjoy!

1,005Senior MemberIt does everything a Ti-83 can do and a WHOLE lot more (calculus, linear algebra, trig, automatically convert units and even have access to Engineering books for equations).

8,850Senior Member235Junior Member1,387Senior Member2,373Senior MemberThe best calculators for symbolic math are graphing calculators, particularly the TI-89 or HP-50G. The 89 is noted for its ease of use, and is very popular with students. The 50G is more powerful and flexible, but it has a significantly steeper learning curve, and is more commonly used by professionals.

The 89 and 50G also support calculations with units, which is handy for engineers. The 50G has the broadest units support, but the 89 probably has all the units you would need as an undergraduate.

9New MemberI use the Hp 50G and the 33S.

I wont debate this subject here as I know im right, but HP makes the best calculators, the only reason Ti is popular is due to them buying out the market with bribes. There calculators actually do suck.

If you are looking for the best graphing calculator its either the HP 48GX or the Hp 50G.

For a scientific it is byfar the 33S.

If you plan to take the FE and PE then buy the 33S as the Ti 36 is awful.
