DOVER, N.J., April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past several years, the subject of STEM has become a major topic of national academic discussions with schools, educators and parents. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, which are disciplines where the skills and knowledge for each are vital to students' success in education. With that said, Casio America, Inc. is encouraging awareness around the study of STEM as these subjects teach students real world skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving, which will ultimately give them an edge when thinking about future careers.
"The spotlight on STEM has never been brighter, and it is critical that students and teachers have the tools they need to succeed," said Makoto Ori, Senior General Manager of Casio's Consumer Products Division. "At Casio, our focus is on developing resources and technologies that address these curriculums from multiple fronts and the PRIZM is a perfect example. It is a great tool to help engage students in explorations that delve into important ideas and encourage critical thinking about content."
Revolutionary among graphing calculators, Casio's PRIZM fx-CG10 is jam-packed with features that enhance students' understanding of mathematics. While conventional graphing calculators require students to create graphs by inputting equations, the PRIZM offers a new way to learn by giving students the opportunity to create their own graphs over pictures of real-life scenes with the world's first Picture Plot function. This helps students understand the functions from the graphs that they created on their own. Additionally, the calculator features a color LCD with a full textbook-style display, as well as a multitude of functions that leverage the color LCD in graphing objects like dotted lines, circles and bars, and grid lines.
