The HP39g calculator is an
easy-to-use algebraic graphing calculator for math and science
Smooth edges, streamlined curves, and a sleek, sturdy shape make
the HP39g comfortable for
either hand-held or desktop use. It comes in a cool, light
metallic blue with a translucent blue slide-on cover that keeps
the screen and keyboard safe when not in use. The
HP39g keyboard is very friendly—large keys with soft
edges and wide key spacing help you steer clear of keystroke

Get the big picture: input and view equations and expressions on
the large, 131 x 64 pixel, high-contrast screen in textbook
mode, then see them just as they appear in textbooks or on the
make statistical inferences
With the HP39g, you can go
beyond analyzing sample data: you can perform hypothesis tests,
measure confidence intervals that relate to a population. The
39g lets you input, view and edit sample data in a table format,
like you would in a computer spreadsheet or table, then plot the
results once you’re finished editing.
e-lessons (aplets) are an outstanding new learning tool from
Hewlett-Packard. Adapted from topics in textbooks, aplets are
electronic lessons packaged to help you learn math and science.
Master new math concepts as you explore at your own pace.
e-lessons are so simple to work with, you can create your own,
and so much fun you’ll want to.
dynamic split screen
With the 39g’s split screen you can have your cake and eat it
too. See math relationships in two displays on one screen for
useful side-by-side comparison.
interactive history of calculations
This feature lets you recall and reuse previously created
Using the built-in trig and quadratic explorer, explore sine,
cosine or quadratics in real-time. Control your graphs and
equations, and see how they relate to one another
communication in hand
Your HP39g can be connected
directly to your personal computer and has support for an
overhead display unit. The 39g can also communicate with other
calculators: using the two-way infrared port you can send data,
equations, notes and even e-lessons to friends and classmates,
from one 39g to another. The infrared port is built-in so
there’s no need for an extra cable.
other special operating features:
- Easy-to-read keys and menus that are grouped together for
- Data entry in simple algebraic notation that looks and
works just like equations written on paper.
- Over 600 functions available at the touch of a button: you
spend less time reading manuals and more time learning.
- 256KB of built-in memory—the 39g is amazingly powerful.

statistical features include:
- Descriptive Statistics (lists, single and two variables,
frequencies, regression, summary statistics)—Sample data
input, editing, plotting and viewing has never been easier.
- Use sample data descriptions to make inferences—make and
measure inferences about the population of interest with
hypothesis tests and confidence intervals.
graphing features include:
- Expanded plotting possibilities—plot types include
function, parametric, polar, conic, sequence and statistical
