Texas Instruments Basic Calculators

A Texas Instruments calculator in the basic form is a practical tool to have on hand for any grade school student. Depending on future schooling, it is also the first step in getting ready for more complex science and math courses. It is even nice to keep one around the house or office for quick calculations or more involved math requirements, such as during tax time. Staples® offers many types of calculators as a part of our office supplies inventory.

Learning About a Basic Texas Instruments Calculator
A basic or elementary calculator is ideal as an anytime tool to assist with simple calculations for any student, office worker, or person in the home. More complicated mathematical computations require a scientific, graphing, or financial model. This basic version gives you zero to 10 buttons along with the essential addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and equal sign keys.

Many of the basic devices provide three keys for working with the memory feature, including one for adding numbers to the memory, one for subtracting from the memory, and a one for recalling what's in the memory. The on and clear display button are usually one in the same on most elementary models. The majority of these simple devices hold up to eight numbers on the screen, plenty of space for easy mathematics.

Deciding on the Features of a Basic Texas Instruments Calculator
Even with the basic model, there are many features to consider. Scientific calculators with bigger keys and a larger screen is ideal for hefty fingers and aging eyes. And any style with an angled display is also easier on the eyes because the screen does not pick up direct light refraction. The calculators come in a few color options, allowing kids, in particular, to be unique, and making it easier to recognize a lost or misplaced device in a classroom. Many run on batteries alone, work with solar cells, or power by batteries as well as with a solar panel. The solar-powered calculators take in a room's light and use that energy to power the calculator. This saves on battery usage when you have a dual-powered device.

What Calculations Can You Compute With a Basic Texas Instruments Calculator?
A basic calculator, also known as a four-function calculator, allows users to perform other simple computations besides addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Most offer the ability to figure percentages, compute square roots, and play with negative numbers, with a key for each of these functions.

What Are the Benefits of a Solar Texas Instruments Calculator?
The most enduring benefit of having a solar-powered elementary calculator is money savings, as batteries are not necessary to use it. And without the addition of batteries in the device, it becomes lighter in weight; helpful if you transport it often. To enjoy the benefits of a solar-paneled calculator, be sure to always use it under a bright light or lamp or have it in a room with adequate illumination.

What Is the Basic Design of a Texas Instruments Calculator?
Most graphing calculators of the four-function style differentiate the keys with a type of color coding. Many display the equal sign and number buttons differently than the function keys -- usually a light color against a darker shade. This makes it simpler for users to understand the key setup and easily complete computations.
