Now /g/, we're pretty much all doing Maths here. What are you using?
Picture related, it's the Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil (0.5mm lead).
Pens, pencils, calculators etc. are welcome.
No desktops, tablets, or phones please - even if they're your calculators.
Calculator software (Matlab, Wolframalpha etc.) are welcome.
Loving this mechanical pencil. It's metal too, so it's not plastic.
Whatever people are using. Personally I'm using it to verify some of my answers. I should probably be using Matlab instead though, seeing as I took the time to *cough* acquire it.
a pencil. I bought a pack of 50 for $5
a stack of plain paper
a clear plastic ruler
that's all I need, that's what's best
when I study something, I don't try to make my notes look pretty
I watch lecture videos, I take notes as I go along, which I end up throwing out
I write down notes that I keep for longer for really important things that are difficult to remember
I then do problem sets
>no computers, tablets, etc
I use my thinkpad x220t's pen function so much when I do math. I just love being able to have a mathematica window right next to a window I do my scratch work on. Does it feel as well as a good mechanical pencil on a notebook? No. But it is very convenient.
Med student reporting. Writing prescriptions (that feel when can't sign) with pic related makes you feel badass as fuck.
Also, pens/pencils general?
What if it has an active stylus and I use it for handwritten notes in all of my classes instead or paper?
Its works really well. I have shitty handwriting, but its only marginally better on paper. The convenience of digital notes is fantastic.
Have been using a Parker like this for at least a decade and is definitely my favorite thing to write with. The balance is always at 2/3 which is perfect in my book.
I even accidentaly dropped it from my window and it feel to the street like 20m below. Barely had a scratch.

I guess you must like ink everywhere all the time.
Software is fine, I just don't want this turning into a 'post your thinkpad' or 'post your phone' thread. If you use a particular piece of software for your notes, post that.
I use a Pentel Graphgear 1000 .3mm. Metal body, doesn't break or cause other problems with the pencil mines, very reliable. And if you have small handwriting but want to use color fineliners, Edding 1800 pens are available with 0.1 stroke width.
rotring 600 @ 0.35
rotring rapid pro @ 0.5
i'm thinking about getting one of these. its weight is mostly distributed towards the eraser end right? the rotrings are all very nib-end heavy.
My all-purpose pen.
The pressure point is basically non-existant, so my hands don't get tired, which was always the worst thing about written exams anyway.
I got mine in black, I use it more than my rotring, mostly because of my worry of ruining the tip like I did before.
where can buy replacement erasers for cheap? shipping is crazy where I bought the pencil from.
Using the one in the middle. Lasts for nearly a decade now. Changed that cartridge once
Appears to be discontinued. I have two.
I have many other pencils, but the regulator is the ultimate.
(I also have one of the nice metal Kuru Toga's as in your picture.)
>person in medicine
>having legible handwriting or signatures
>*exception is a young woman with super neat, sometimes soft curve writing
Anyways, masterrace pencil.
I got this cheap shit graphing calculator for $35 on Amazon. It's lasted me from Calculus I to III. Screw expensive graphing calculators that I'll never use again outside of school.
you won't really need one out of school.

$3 from Goodwill. Best. Calculator. Ever. (Except maybe the HP Prime but I'm too poor for that.)
Yes it is. The OS is so well put together compared to the clusterfuck of the TI calculators with it's 5 million different menus. This just has the stack, some functions, and some menus to automate the functions. It's simplicity at it's best.
I've done my math for the night. TWSBI 580AL served me well.
Here's most of what i have thats interesting. I'm more interested in mechanical pencils than pens as shown.
I can get a closer shot of an individual pencil if if requested.
Is your preppy fairly unforgiving? I have to have the perfect rotation and inclination (which happens to be an awkward position for me) to get it to write without skipping all the time.
It's nice when it actually writes though.
At times it can be, but when i was using it i got used to to and was pretty impressed for a cheap pen.
Also there is an article somewhere where someone made it an eyedropper fountain pen with an o ring and vasiline on the threads.
Its a Sheaffer
