Tech firm Casio is entering a new realm with the release
of the PRIZM graphing calculator.
The PRIZM, the first in Casio’s next-generation line of graphing calculators, boasts a high-resolution color LCD display and a variety of other functions designed to assist with math lessons.
Approved for use on the ACT, PSAT, SAT and AP exams, the PRIZM offers full textbook-style display with the highest pixel resolution and widest color reproduction of any calculator currently on the market.
“PRIZM provides teachers and students with a powerful educational tool that will transform how technology is used in the classroom and enhance students’ perspectives and understanding of rich mathematical concepts” said Casio curriculum and training director Amber Branch. “The breakthrough in technology doesn’t take over the classroom; it enhances it and makes an immediate impact on the way students comprehend mathematics.”
Apart from the new technical specs, teachers can take advantage of training programs Casio offers to make using the calculator even easier. Math teachers can contact Casio to get hands-on with the PRIZM and learn how to integrate this new technology into math and science curricula.
Step-by-step instructions will help math teachers navigate the calculator and walk them through some basic operations in each module.
“We are thrilled to introduce the new PRIZM to Casio’s line of superior graphing calculators,” said Casio’s consumer products division general managerGreg Yurchuk.“PRIZM brings math to life with vivid images and color displays which offer students a fun and innovative way to learn in the modern-day classroom.”
