What you will need for this course – About the calculator.
This course assumes that you have a Casio Classwiz calculator or have regular access to one or a Casio Classwiz Emulator on your computer. It is useful to have a mobile device with a camera so that you can use the Casio EDU+ app and the QR codes produced by the Classwiz to display additional features.
It is primarily designed for the fx-991EX / fx-570EX available worldwide. Similar Classwiz models with comparable features are also available, for which many parts of this course are relevant. These models of Classwiz have Blue DEL and AC keys, white number keys, a black finish with silver navigation buttons. They typically have 991 or 570 as their numerical designation. However these models may lack or have different features to the ones shown in this course and as such some content may not compatible with these models.
Other compatible Classwiz models include:
fx-991 DE X; fx-570SP X; fx-991SP X; fx-570AR X; fx-991AR X; fx-570LA X; fx-991LA X; fx-991 CE X;
The Japanese model the fx-JP900 is also compatible, but you must be comfortable identifying the relevant features listed in Japanese rather than English.
If you have one of the above models you are going to be able to learn a significant amount from this course.
Attention! – Incompatible models below
There also exists subsidiary models of the Casio Classwiz for which much of this content will be incompatible. These models have Orange DEL and AC, a grey finish with black models. If you will have this model of Classwiz it will not have as many features as the model used in this course and as such this course will not be as extensive for you and you will not get the full benefit. These models include the fx-82/85/350EX; fx-87DE X; fx-82SP X/X II_85SP X II_350SP X/X II; fx-82AR X; fx-95AR X; fx-82LA X; fx-350LA X; fx-82 CE X; fx-85 CE X; fx-350 CE X; fx-92 Spéciale Collège; fx-92B Spéciale Collège. It is also not advised to take this course if you a learning the features of another brand of calculator such as Texas Instruments, Sharp or HP.
You may also wish to consider downloading the Casio Edu+ app your your mobile device so that you can access additional features via the Classwiz QR Codes.
Who is the target audience?
- School and college students (typically 16+) studying a mathematics course (or a course with mathematical content), who would like to develop their knowledge of using a scientific calculator effectively. This may also include university students who are required to use a scientific calculator.
- Teachers, lecturers or educators involved in teaching mathematics to students, who wish to develop skills using a Casio Classwiz
- Any other professionals who are required to use a scientific calculator or anyone interested in improving calculator and mathematical skills.
- This particular course is designed for use with the Casio Classwiz fx-991EX or fx-570EX model of calculator. If you have another model of Casio Classwiz, whilst you may find many of the lectures applicable, there may be functions and features that are not available on your location specific version of the Classwiz.

I have been teaching mathematics for over eight years and am excited about teaching students how to get more out of using technology for learning, specifically their calculator. I started The Calculator Guide, a growing collection of videos and resources in February 2015 and am happy to be developing courses online and on
