Here is another useful resource - "How to use your Casio Scientific Calculator" - useful if you haven't been shown at school - also make sure you know what the dot means eg if you divide 1 by 3 the answer should be 1.333333 ... etc recurring - but you will see this on your screen as 1.3 with a dot above the 3 ... it means it recurs or repeats ...

Here is the course - I hope its still available http://the-calculator-guide.teachable.com/p/essential-casio-calculator-skills-succeed-with-math
