Numworks Updates the Graphing Calculator for the 21st Century

When I was in school, the best calculator you could get would be one of those crazy expensive HP-10C’s which offered some very fancy math abilities that I never fully understood, but the smartest students were using them, so they must have been good. That said, the HP-10C’s tiny LCD screen couldn’t come close to this new calculator from Numworks.

The Numworks Graphing Calculator is designed to help high school students learn and solve math problems, and includes a variety of built-in programs for different math scenarios. It’s got apps for calculation, functions, sequences, probability, statistics, and regression, as well as a tool for designing and executing Python algorithms.

Unlike smartphone and tablet apps, this is something students can safely use in class, without risk of going online and Snapchatting instead of doing their schoolwork.

It’s got a 2.8″ full color, backlit LCD screen with a 320×240 resolution for easy viewing of graphs and calculations. Sadly, it’s not a touchscreen, and must be navigated using the buttons below the display. Still that’s a minor drawback given its capabilities. Battery life is rated at 20 hours.

Priced at just $99.99(USD), it packs a whole lot of functionality without breaking the bank like the old HP-10C once did. You can test out how the Numworks calculator works right now using their online simulator.
