The Casio fx-260 Solar Scientific Calculator
The GED Testing Service selected the Casio fx-260 Solar Scientific calculator as the official calculator for the GED Mathematics Test. The Casio fx-260 calculator is available at many office supply centers and discount stores and from the GED Testing Service Fulfillment Center.
All scientific calculators perform the same basic functions; however, each calculator type operates a little differently. For this reason, it is very important that students have an opportunity to practice using the official calculator—the Casio fx-260 Scientific Solar—before taking the GED Mathematics Test.
Students who understand how to use the Casio fx-260 calculator and who are comfortable with the basic operation of it will experience much less frustration and concern during the GED Mathematics Test. If you don't have calculators in your classroom, you may wish to put them at the top of your priority list for purchase.
Special Note: This web-based training section provides problems and examples that you can practice on your own Casio fx-260 calculator.
If you do not have access to a Casio fx-260, you may wish to purchase one from your local office supply or discount store so that you can work along with the training module.
