very minimal ... I have that calculator
I personally recommened the natural display calculators, easier for punching in equations and they display in fractions and surds.
Ah, Surds. Great things.
it's the one they recommend for our A levels. The non calc. exam done last wednesday ... don't think I will be carrying it on to A2
I also recommend the natural display calculator!! Much better, been so handy since I got it, I now have 2 and a graphical calculator!! Sorry I get over excited about calculators
Minimal at the moment, wait till 6 weeks in You know how uni rooms turn out, lol. And if only I could use a graphical in my end of year... Cam only allows 4 or 5 models of calculators to even up the field. Well, I had a calculator before I arrived, but it wasn't one of the "holy 5", so it was banned. I had to shell out for an "approved" one.
The only difference is the banned one had basic Vectors and Matrix operations... which were cumbersome and slower than the normal by hand anyway. Yeah.
Graphical calculators don't seem to help all that much outside exams anyway - if there's anything tricky to draw, there's either Mathematica, MathCAD, Autograph or Grapher. Now if someone designed an app to complete a question with worked solutions, then my life would be complete
i did maths at uni and wasnt allowed a calculator at all :'(
Hilariously enough, the mathematicians weren't asked to buy a university approved calculator. I was curious why us natural scientists were required to buy calculators but not the mathematicians, so I looked at the work they were doing: it was so abstract that I didn't see any numbers, only letters and symbols, sets and subsets... man, I felt bad for them poor suckers for once.
EDIT: I may have steered this thread off topic
Speaking of maths, I have an exam tomorrow at uni. Gads!
At my college, no calculators are allowed in any math courses.
Here's my room:
I'm trying to take a picture of the view but it's hard to get a good one at night.
Here's my setup:
Oh, and the math courses I did at college required me to purchase a Texas Instruments TI 83, which was quite expensive:
The TI-83+ is full of win. I had to have one for my first year of high school. I could swear I'm still using the batteries that came with it, despite getting a low batt warning a couple years back.
I've had one since 2005, and I've never has to swap the batteries.
That is my dream calculator, but it's too damn expensive and illegal.
No calculator in math? I'd die, I can't add or subtract to save my own life.
@altron moar pix of amp pls? what is it?
@calculators - I pwn you anyway i got ti 84+ SE which apparently seems to be the top-of-what-is-allowed, but it was not that much expensive (like few bucks over ti83 on ebay) so I got it. Not much different to ti83 in what I'm doing tbh
Yeah... I'm talking '01/'02, yeh young hoodlum.
In all my photos, the 19" seems larger than the Dell
And who ya' calling a 'Hoodlum'
Same monitor as me
Although both of mine are a bit broken, one is a little bit fuzzy and the other has a dark splodge in the middle
I've had mine for quite a few years now, and haven't had any problems of any sort. It's still as crisp and clear as day.
do you have any source for big resolution south park frames ? Not wallpapers but frames of episodes. I have found a few very high resolution ones and they look amazing. I am actually pretty sure this is one of them (from the Die Hippie Die episode)
kinda like this one
this is directly from comedy central after all
here's the page
