Japan’s oldest calculator manufacturer, Casio is also the most prolific maker of calculators in the world. I already have more than programmable models listed, and I see no end in sight! Given the number and apparent popularity of Casio’s models, it is a bit mamual a surprise to see how uninspiring many of their products are. This is especially true of fc4500pa higher-end products that feature a mediocre programming model and a lack of functional integration between the calculator’s various features.
In contrast, many of their lower-end models are surprisingly versatile, and their oldest products are by far the most interesting. Casio has been producing keystroke programmable calculators for nearly three decades. Over the years, several programming models emerged; some were short-lived, some has been used in several generations of products. Casio’s began producing calculators in the pre-LCD era; their first programmable models used vacuum fluorescent displays.
A particularly annoying “feature” of many low-cost programmable calculators is that they provide no feedback during programming.
On these calculators, your calculations are performed as normal when you are entering a program, instead of showing up as a list of editable program steps. Fortunately, Casio also produced some advanced keystroke programmables.
Many used the same programming model that is found in their graphing calculators, providing labels, subroutines, and other sophisticated functions. Most importantly, on these machines it is possible to review and edit programs.
Programmable Calculators – Casio
Formula programmables provide storage for formulae in algebraic form. While this method is convenient for students and, to a lesser extent, casual users, most formula programmables offer no true program control capabilities, such as branching, loops, or conditional execution. Worse yet, it is often difficult to use predefined constants in kanual, as these calculators have the annoying habit of prompting for all variables used in a program, whether you fs4500pa them to be user-entered or not.
Over the years, several different product lines emerged, but they all shared some distinguishing features, such as a MODE button that lets you select between calculator and program modes, and a standard set xf4500pa ten program areas. Some machines had a built-in printer. Is the trade-off worth it? Yes, Virginia, there is such an animal: I wonder what it says about the respective educational markets that whereas the most popular calculators in North America are non-programmable scientifics with a fraction feature, in Japan C-language handhelds are surprisingly popular.
Casio invented the graphing calculator. No, it wasn’t Hewlett-Packard; much to my surprise, I found out that Casio’s first graphing model, the fxG, preceded HP’s first mmanual machines by at least a year or more.
Unfortunately, like so many other Casio models, the fxG is, well, uninspiring. HP’s first graphing model, the HPC, offered a whole new paradigm for programmable calculators, one that combined keystroke programming with advanced object-oriented features.
In contrast, the fxG lacks functional integration and, in many ways, graphing is more an afterthought than an integrated feature. Then again, HP used to be making engineering tools, whereas Casio’s machines were designed for classroom use. Easy to use is not the same as easy to learn. Casio continues to be a leader in the graphing calculator field; in fact, Casio remains the only calculator manufacturer producing a graphing model with a color display.
And despite my earlier comments, I do occasionally come across Casio graphing calculators, like the fxG, that are a pleasure to use.
Casio graphing calculators are clearly designed with the educational market in mind. For better or for worse, the goal is not to create an engineering tool but a learning instrument. Overhead models are functional equivalents of their regular counterparts, to be used by educators in classrooms equipped with overhead projectors. Casio’s color graphing calculators represent technology’s inevitable march forward. Although these relatively primitive displays are not true RGB, they help the user the student, probably create two-color graphs, for instance, that make it easier to demonstrate certain mathematical principles.
There are several Casio programmables that I have not yet held in my hands, and therefore I don’t know any details about them. Several Casio calculator models were sold under various OEM brand names, including the earliest machines. Even the Russian manufacturer Elektronika marketed a model obviously designed and manufactured by or under license from Casio.
