Where I live, HP & TI are just nonexistent.

So I'm stuck with Casio. Can you recommend a model for me??

I will be basically using it just for math 2. So I don't need any features beyond what's covered there.

## Replies to: Best Casio graphing calc. For math 2

131Registered User Junior Member2,118Registered User Senior MemberWhen I took Math II there was a problem where we had to construct a linear regression, which graphing calculators can do, but not scientific. Thing is, the answer could've easily been guessed from the answer choices.

So you may not need a graphing calculator for math II, but ultimately you decide how much you want to spend, etc. A graphing calculator will definitely help in the long run if you take calculus, statistics, or other subjects. Unfortunately I don't know much about Casios (I use a TI-NSpire).

131Registered User Junior Member2,118Registered User Senior MemberI personally prefer TI's over Casio, but that's only my opinion and you can choose to get whatever you wish. But how limited are you to Casio? Are you able to buy online?

131Registered User Junior MemberWhat features do I need most, tho??

2,118Registered User Senior MemberYou'll likely want to use trig and log functions, graphing capability, and occasionally linear/quadratic regressions. Graphing calculators can do the last two, but scientific calculators won't.

2,214Super Moderator Senior MemberJust make sure you have enough time to master the basics (graphing, tracing, solving...).

Both fx-9750GII and fx-9860GII have very good reviews on Amazon.

I would not worry about regression questions - they are too time consuming, and I just skip them; besides, they seldom show on the SAT Math II.

Thank you guys for the suggestions, tho, that was really helpful :)

2,118Registered User Senior Member513Registered User MemberAnything that requires a graphing calculator can be done by guess and check/plugging-in numbers.

You could also just order a TI online or something.

2,118Registered User Senior Member131Registered User Junior Member2,118Registered User Senior Member131Registered User Junior MemberEasy to use, includes all the stuff I needed, and more.

Thanks for the recommendation.

You guys rock!!
