Python for Casio Calculators: Powerful Python programs and games for the Casio fx-CG50 and fx-9750GIII calculators

Casio provides Python in two of their calculators, the full-color, top of the line fx-CG50, and the low priced, power-house fx-9750GIII. I developed all the programs in this book to run on the fx-CG50, but almost all of them also run just fine on the fx-9750GIII.
Some of the graphics commands might need some adjustments, as the fx-9750GIII display is black and white, with no color option, and the pixel width and height of the screens are different. When displaying lines of text and numbers, as in many programmed calculations, the screens are nearly identical.
This book should serve you well if you have either calculator, and making those slight adjustments to the code required for running on the fx-9750GIII provides a great opportunity to learn and understand how Python works.
The hope for the future is that Casio will provide more models that support Python programming. Only time will tell! I have both calculators mentioned above, so feel free to contact me if you hit any snags getting a program to run on either model.
Fun and interesting programs each with their own introduction or explanation intended to help teach the reader the ins and outs of Python include such favorites as
Calendar Functions such as "Days Between Dates" or DAYSDATS
Electronic Functions which include some basics to Electronics for students
Games of Chance - including decks of cards, dice and calculating the odds of winning the next time "Monty Hall" offers you 3 doors to pick between.
GPS - distance, area and navigation
Money and Finances - including how to calculate "Future Value" or FUTURVAL
And many others, including some Environmentally important programs, and space sciences programs.
Python for Casio Computers is a fascinating read for some of its fun facts - even if you don't want to learn Python, because of the discussion around each program as it is explained and demonstrated.
If you know of a student who wants to learn how to program, get them the Casio calculators and get this book as a companion so they can get off to a really fast start into the world of coding!
