In maths in school we are starting to do a lot of problems involving integral and differential calculus as well as general algebra. The problem is while I can see the correct method of going about obtaining a solution it takes me a long time to get there as the integration and stuff takes up time and I'm not getting marks for it!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm not allowed to use a graphic calculator in one of my exams, mechanics. So our teacher doesn't like them in her class. Should I get one anyway and use it at home and for the parts I can use it?

The other thing is that I want to do maths next year and do engineering at uni so I would need one then.

Thanks
