Casio America releases its next generation line of graphing calculator, which feature world’s first Picture Plot function, that enables users to plot graphs over curves and other familiar shapes in real life, such as the parabola of jets from a water fountain.

The PRIZM calculator comes with high-resolution 3.7-inch color LCD display (216×384 screen), to enable equations and text to be displayed just like they appear in textbooks and in the same time provides low power consumption, enabling color display with an estimated run time of 140 hours on four AAA-size alkaline batteries. The fx-CG10 can also be connected to a PC via USB  and to projectors.

The new PRIZM fx-CG10 is already approved for use on the ACT, PSAT, SAT and AP Exams and will be available in January 2011 with an MSRP of $129.99.

“PRIZM is revolutionary among graphing calculators with features that enhance users’ understanding of mathematics. With conventional graphing calculators, students learn by inputting equations to create graphs. PRIZM creates a whole new way to learn math by enabling students to experiment by creating their own graphs over pictures of real-life scenes, and then understand the functions from the graphs that they created on their own.”
