Casio BASIC is a programming language used in the Casio calculators such as the Classpad, fx-9860G Series, and CFX graphing calculators.

The language is a linear structured, BASIC-based programing language. It was devised to allow users to program in commonly performed calculations, such as the Pythagorean theorem and complex trigonometric calculations.

Output from the program can be in the form of scrolling or located text, graphs, or by writing data to lists in the calculator memory.

Numerical data can be stored in the lists and matrices available on Casio calculators. This data can be used to create sprites for non-text programs.[1] In this way, the language can also be used to create games, such as Pong, Monopoly and role-playing games.
