Calculator App Gives The Answer Just By Taking A Picture Of A Textbook
First it was the slide rule. Then it was the simple electronic calculator. Teachers then had to battle scientific calculators. Math teachers probably thought it could never get worse, but PhotoMath has just given math students a free pass. This amazing little app for iOS and Windows Mobile makes math homework a no-brainer, literally. An Android edition is coming, too. The app snaps a picture of the match problem, gives you the answer, and all the steps to get to that answer. In must moments a student could race through their math homework and still not have learned a single thing.
On the other hand, if a student studies the answers provided by PhotoMath they could learn complex mathematics easily. Will it become the math teacher’s worst nightmare, or an amazing teaching aid to share with students?
