Programming your calculator: Casio fx-7400G PLUS

Kissane, B. (2000) Programming your calculator: Casio fx-7400G PLUS. Shriro Australia Pty Limited, Chatswood, N.S.W.

Abstract

The Casio fx-7400G PLUS does not have all the capabilities of larger, more sophisticated (and considerably more expensive) graphics calculators. This booklet contains examples of programs that you can use to extend its capabilities in various ways.

Some of the programs allow the calculator to undertake tasks usually available only on more sophisticated calculators (such as solving equations). Some programs allow you to explore mathematical ideas in new ways, such as those involving generating random data. Some others provide mathematical functions not usually available on calculators (such as finding factors of a number).

A calculator program is a set of commands to be carried out by the calculator in a particular sequence. There are special programming commands available to direct the calculator, although most of the commands are those with which you are already familiar.

It is not necessary to know how to write a program in order to use a program. All that you need to do is to faithfully enter into your calculator a program written by someone else, and to know how and when to use the program.

The User's Guide provides detailed information on programming, as well as some other programs, if you would like to know more about this.
