Using Casio CG50 for matrices and complex numbers



We will be sharing expertise on using Casio CG50 to solve work with matrices and complex numbers. Teachers will be asked to have a Casio CG50 with them for use and to know how to navigate around the calculator. Teachers needing an initial introduction to CG50 should book a Casio course for their department on this link: CG50 Skills Training ( There are also some useful videos on the Casio education website on this link.


  • To develop technical skills on complex numbers
  • To use run and matrix mode for matrices
  • To share technical expertise

Who will benefit from attending?

Teachers who teach year 1 further maths and wish to improve their understanding of techniques to use in lessons.


The session will include a mix of presented techniques and shared ideas from teachers.
