Goddamn, these things have come a long way since I was in high school. What are you guys rocking?
Pic related for when youre not allowed to use phone & laptop.
Otherwise I use my fucking laptop which has a better processor than the one they used to send people to moon so it should be able to draw me a graph or two if i want. Hell it can probably even emulate your pathetic calculator in a VM or something.
I use a Casio fx-300ES I got about 5 years ago. I have over the years become interested in an exploit in the calculator that can do really weird stuff to it, and may allow arbitrary code execution. So far, the only really useful thing that I've found that's possible is tricking the calculator into thinking it's a fx-991ES. Messing up the ram can be good fun, though. Pic related is an emulator (different calculator, but the same ROM) I have partly through the upgrade exploit. Unfortunately, most of the information is in Chinese, and very few English speaking people have an interest in the exploit or even know about it.
