Solve math problems using your device's camera






PhotoMath is an app that can solve math problems by just pointing your camera to them. The app works very similarly to QR readers, and shows you the solution for the problem in seconds.

One of the main benefits of PhotoMath in contrast to other similar apps is that it lets you see a complete transcription of the step by step operation followed to reach the solution. Instead of just showing you the result and nothing else, PhotoMath lets you see every step before the solution.

As a drawback, PhotoMath has no problem reading printed math operations, or reading them on a screen, but it usually has difficulties reading hand-written operations.

PhotoMath is a good math application that lets you solve problems in seconds, but don't use this app at high school!
Android apps to help you with math

As we’ve already discussed here before, educational methods are changing, embracing technology in a much more natural way, although this in turn requires changes in learning methods from a young age. Math has always been an uphill battle for many in the absence of a better method to assimilate that mishmash of numbers and formulas than simply rolling up one’s sleeves and doing exercises to the point of exhaustion. But never fear: we’ve put together a compendium here of apps to help you with math.

PhotoMath solves math problems with your phone’s camera

Computerizing education and automating problem-solving can be a double-edged sword, as it can lead slacker students to lean too much on technology instead of using their noggin. Even still, in certain circumstances, especially stuff related to doing calculations, solving equations, and solving for unknowns in functions, a good technological tool can be super-helpful. PhotoMath is one of the best in its field, letting you solve problems (and see the steps to do so) based on a photo taken with your device.
