Abstract

In most examinations, scientific calculator is used to do calculation. As compared to Casio fx-570MS, Casio fx- 570ES calculator is more users friendly. The display of the n x m matrix is more natural which is exactly in their mathematical form. This natural textbook display will avoid confusion among students as Casio fx-570MS only shows one line expression. In this paper, a collection of keystroke sequences is illustrated to highlight its features of matrix computation. Once the students can utilize their calculator throughout matrix computation in numerical methods, they can expand their ability to any other problems involving matrix in a similar pattern for any subjects in undergraduate level.
