General ClassPad Courses
This free course is an introduction to all 19 Apps that come bundled with the Casio ClassPad. It is designed to highlight what is possible in each app and make sure that users know the best app to deal with the problem they have to explore or solve. Links to the Casio World Education site are included to add or restore any missing apps or files and also to download the latest operating system for your ClassPad. Suitable for beginners using the Casio fx-CP400 or the fx-CG500 models.
Despite Casio launching the current ClassPad fx-CP400 model in 2013 (with OS v1), bugs are still being discovered in its operating system. Hence it makes sense that whenever a new update is made available by Casio (roughly once a year), users update their ClassPad. This short course shows how to find the OS version of your handheld ClassPad, find the latest OS available from the Casio website and install it on your handheld if required. Some tips are also shared to get the most out of any new ClassPad OS update.
This short course covers how to import and export programs, eActivities and other files into your ClassPad. Whether you use a handheld model, a computer emulator, or the ClassPad app for Android or iOS smartphones and tablets, your needs are covered. Although the course duration is close to 30 minutes, most users can jump to the part(s) relevant for their device and be downloading within minutes.
This short course covers tips to customise your ClassPad so that you can work efficiently and get results the way you'd like to see them. We start by tweaking settings in Main and then move on to setting up Shift Keys in System. Two battery-saving measures are shown followed by steps needed to set a unique Ending Screen. Understanding variables is important to get the most out of ClassPad and their creation, management and deletion is explored. In the final two parts we create and store a mini-function in the library folder so that the function can be used in all ClassPad apps.
Explaining what an eActivity is, or does, is difficult - they can be one of many different things. In this course we start by looking at a range of different eActivities and then move on to their construction. Besides the student favourites - storing formulas in NumSolve strips and 'cascade' style copies of mathematical procedures in Main strips, we also head off the beaten track and make some other types of eActivity. This course assumes basic proficiency with ClassPad.
ClassPad comes with its own coding app (Program) that runs Casio BASIC, and this course explains how to use it to extend the functionality of ClassPad. Starting with defining new functions in Main, we move on to creating open programs in eActivity and finish up creating simple programs in the Program application. Along the way we'll brush up on general coding skills and share a few tips and tricks to get the most out of the Program app. Basic proficiency will be assumed in (i) knowing your way around ClassPad and (ii) having some general coding skills.
