DOVER, N.J., June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the current academic year comes to a close, parents and educators alike are beginning to look ahead towards the fall and prepare for the 2016-2017 school year. Casio America, Inc. wants to make sure that students have everything they need and Casio's calculators and full portfolio of LampFree® classroom projectors are ideal tools to create strong engagement in learning this fall and beyond.
"Casio has a rich history of developing technologies with innovative features that educators want in the classroom and students will appreciate using while learning," said Yuji Sasajima, CEO of Casio America, Inc. "The summer season is an ideal time for parents and educators to prepare for the next school year and with Casio projectors and calculators, they can rest assured that students will have the best tools to learn key skills needed for their future."
Spotlight on Education
Casio's full portfolio of classroom projectors features LampFree technology. By combining a laser and LED light source, Casio projectors are a unique, high-brightness, mercury-free tool that uses half the amount of power per unit than its traditional lamp-based counterparts. These LampFree offerings save educators time and money because they require minimal maintenance and eliminate the cost of replacement lamps. Casio projectors have a 20,000-hour lifespan, which is the equivalent to approximately 18 years of school use. That means that schools can save nearly $2,500 when compared to traditional mercury lamp projectors. Additionally, in an industry where most projection lamps come with only a 90-day warranty, Casio backs its unique design with three to five years, depending on the projector.
Calculators Add to the Learning Fun
Casio offers a full portfolio of innovative scientific and graphic calculators that help make learning fun for students. Casio's ClassWiz fx-991EX is the industry's first scientific calculator with spreadsheet functionality, which enables students to create spreadsheets with up to five columns and 45 rows for a maximum of 170 data items. It also boasts a high-resolution screen and comes equipped with a natural textbook display, which means that mathematic equations and formulas are displayed just as they would appear in a student's textbook. Additionally, the calculator can convert graphs into QR codes, which can be displayed on a projector screen, allowing teachers and students to work together seamlessly.
Revolutionary among graphing calculators, Casio's PRIZM fx-CG10 is jam-packed with features that enable students to solve the most challenging equations and enhance their understanding of mathematics, including the world's first Picture Plot function. The Picture Plot function enables users to plot graphs over pictures of real-life scenes and offers a color LCD with a full textbook-style display. Additionally, the PRIZM includes a multitude of functions that leverage the color LCD in graphing objects like dotted lines, circles and bars, and grid lines.
