DOVER, N.J., May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As a way to honor teachers and recognize the crucial role they play in shaping our nation's students, Teacher Appreciation Week was created. Celebrated during the first full week of May each year, Teacher Appreciation Day is celebrated on the Tuesday of that designated week. Casio America, Inc., a leading manufacturer of education technology, understands the tireless work educators perform each day. Casio's latest calculators and projectors offer features that support teacher's goals and can alleviate classroom stress.
"Often times, we take for granted the long hours and tremendous amount of work it takes to be a successful educator," said Makoto Ori, Senior General Manager of Casio's Consumer Products Division. "We at Casio acknowledge and appreciate their tireless work. That is why we work to develop tools for the classroom, including calculators and projectors, which support their efforts and help to make teaching efficient and fun."
fx-CG50 PRIZM Graphing Calculator
A new addition to the revolutionary PRIZM line, Casio's fx-CG50 offers an improved catalog function so teachers and students can use commands more easily and quickly. Expanded features include the ability to easily draw 3D graphs such as planes, cylinders and spheres, and view them from various angles in order to better analyze their shape. Additionally, the fx-CG50 includes the Picture Plot function which enables users to plot graphs over pictures of real-life scenes and offers a color LCD with a full textbook-style display. These features enable teachers to ensure their students are getting the most out of the educational tools in their classroom while enhancing their understanding of mathematics.
Casio's Portfolio of LampFree® Projectors, including those in their Core Series, are ideal tools for the classroom. With the ability to project images and video wirelessly from smart phones, laptop computers and tablets, the Core Series is a key tool that enhances learning for students while easing stresses on educators. Additionally, Casio's mercury-free Laser and LED hybrid light source has a service life of up to 20,000 hours without the need to change a lamp. For use in schools, this corresponds to an operating lifetime of up to 18 years, during which the projector is running for an average of six hours a day during a 180-day school year.
