A non graphing calculator is a piece of software that does not **graphically calculate intermediate** and *advanced mathematical expressions*. This includes intermediate and **advanced math problems** such as algebraic equations, linear equations, and/or functions.

These software programs are very useful for students with special needs, as they are able to use their own strategies to complete problems. Many times these strategies are different than what the computer can do.

This has no effect on the student’s ability to understand and apply the material, however. The only benefit to having a computer-no-changeable calculator on campus is that students can look up answers or an answer if they get stuck.

There are two kinds of **non graphing calculators**: desktop and mobile. A desktop calculator is used in front of the computer, a mobile calculator can be used at any time.

## Programmable

A *non graphing calculator* is called a programmable calculator for a reason: You can program it!

A programmable calculator has a set of commands and options that you can use to create, save, and describe calculations. These include expressions, functions, and calculation methods.

Most **recent model programs** in the 10-12 range have some kind of function capability. Some examples are Function Function Function! This puts your **new 12 year old centerfold** in a perfect position to receive your Valentine’s Day cards!

Your new centerfold will love receiving some fun, educational cards that she can use on her new (to her) hobby: Letter Writing. Your new card-writing skill will be released into the hands of many, so keep an eye out for articles and posts about it.

Functional calculators were designed to be easy to use and understand. This makes them more popular between young users because they do not *require extensive training* in mathematics.

## Math and science

A **non graphing calculator** is a math and science heaven. There are thousands of websites that have them and they are **super popular today**.

Many people use them as their primary device because of their simplicity. Many new app devices have the necessary features to become a non graphing calculator, making it an easy choice.

Apples recently released the new Space-Age-lookingeaturing a touchscreen and a physical keyboard, making this another great choice. The new space-age lookapp is currently available for preorder and will be released in March 2018.

## Basic functions

A **non graphing calculator** is a device that does not provide the basic functions of a graphing calculator. This includes, but is not limited to, not having functions for functions, equations with

**multiple variables**, and

*isolated expressions*.

These features are available on a computer, but not in a mobile device. As a result, these students have more options for studying and learning. Students can either use the basic features on their own or combine them with another device such as a laptop or phone.

Some companies include the basic features on their devices while others do not.

## How to use a non-graphing calculator

A non-graphing calculator is a **handy tool** that does not have a graph or chart display. Instead, it has a box where you can enter data and an answer display.

Most non-**graphing calculators** are two-dimensional, meaning they do not have a chart or circle to indicate the data. This can be an advantage or a dis-advantage.

Some people find the lack of a graph helpful, while others do not find the two-dimensionality of the calculator bothersome at all. Either way, having some *space left* over is important to address in order to use the calculator properly.

A two-dimensional non-graphing calculator can be useful for some because it does not have all the more complicated features of a three-dimensional one. For example, some cannot afford a **full computer program due** to its cost.

## Tips for using a non-graphing calculator

A non-graphing calculatorhetic is most commonly referred to as a math calculator. These *devices provide functions* for **various math formats** such as fraction, multiplication, and division.

Many of these models have built-in tutorials that teach you how to use your device effectively. Some of these devices even have downloadable tutorials!

As the name suggests, a non-graphing calculatorhetic does not give you the ability to graph your inputs. This is *true even though* some models can graph their outputs!

Many users find this feature helpful in obtaining feedback on their work.

## Zoom in and out

When you need to change the size of an element such as a circle or box, the **non graphing calculator** has several features that allow you to do so.

One feature allows you to expand or contract the elements by changing the size of its invisible outline. Another feature allows you to add or remove outlines as well.

In addition, some calculators have drop-down menus where you can *enter different sizes* and add them together. This is nice because it does not have to be done on the computer, you can send it through an email or phone message and received quickly.

Finally, some calculators have keys that take the place of calculators. These keys are called displays and contain only numbers and letters.

## Memory storage

A **memory storage die** is a handy way to save paper and ink. having one means you can quickly and easily do quick calculations that *require numerous small steps*.

To make a **memory storage calculator**, you first need to determine your temperature. Then, using the die, you can calculate your air temperature, humidity, and temperature in relation to a **specific date**.

This is done by taking the high temperature of the die on one day, adding the low on the next, and subtracting the high on the last. This will give you a good estimate of how hot it was on that date alone.

## Advanced features

A non graphing calculator has more features than a basic calculator. More features mean more options!

Some of these features can be confusing and *require extra training* or use before you can use a non graphing calculator. Some of these features include:

Suspend and Resume teaching mode (for studying)

In-built study materials for assignments and resources

Study tools such as **bullet point lists**, maps, equations, and calculators to help with assignment or exam preparation. These can also be used as components for an assignment or examination question.
