However, it is not only for calculation but also how to use it for exploration. Exploration in Mathematics means a series of activities about looking and finding solution in mathematics."

Farras Hibban Faddilah, a Mathematics Olympiad Winner, said, "In Mathematics question, we are asked to find out in how many ways can we arrange the letters of a word. Firstly, we have to train our logic thinking so that we could understand how to solve it. Then for calculation itself, in my opinion, it is quite complicated because the numbers are quite big. Therefore, scientific calculator really helps me a lot to solve the question and find out the answer."

On the other hand, there was a happening that indicates the merits of integrating the scientific electronic calculator into mathematic education.

Starting with role-playing demonstrations, talk shows conducted by the specialists in education, students who won the Mathematical Olympiad, and the artists who like mathematics, the press was impressed with the variety of content on the usage of scientific calculators that nurtures mathematical thinking.

Yasuhiro Ito, General Manager of Overseas Calculator Sales, CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD., said, "We would like to show that function (mathematics) is interesting. With Casio, we would like to actively work on organizing lectures and workshops for promoting the use of scientific calculators."
