Photomath description

Math is one of those subjects in school that has gained one of the most notorious reputations worldwide. Unless you have an inherent love for numbers, it’s likely that you’ve faced some sort of resentment towards this frustrating subject at one point in time. Whether it was a homework assignment that made no sense or your finals, math has a way to get on our very last nerves. Thankfully in the world of smartphones there’s a solution to this ever-growing problem: Photomath. Photomath is a free to download math tool and companion that can help you solve simple to complicated math problems in no time. It’s available for both Android and iOS users.

The Review

Photomath isn’t like a calculator that only computes the values you put in. No, it does things at an entirely different trajectory. It won’t even be entirely false to call it one of the best math tool and innovations our smartphones could provide us with. Photomath is the perfect app for those struggling with math in school and even a great tool for teachers and parents.

How Photomath works sounds simple but is actually a scientific marvel. All you need to do is take a picture of the math problem you’re trying to find a solution off. The app then calculates and finds the most accurate solution to it. This all might sound too good to be true but it actually works with a very small fail rate. There have been almost no complaints from users of Photomath regarding its solving capabilities and accuracy which is saying something. There also have been little to no complaints of the app lagging or erring in any way.

Photomath can be your best mathematics companion whether you’re a student trying to wrap your head around a complex homework assignment or if you’re a parent trying to learn the basics of this subject to teach your kids. Teachers can also benefit from the Photomath app as it allows them to understand and discover complicated math solutions themselves as well a detailed step by step explanation that can be later taught in the classroom or at home.

This app has some pretty advanced technology backing it up. The smart camera built into the app recognizes handwritten math problems easily (given that they are articulate and not messy). The solution to the problem is found in seconds and you can get your answers almost instantaneously.

What’s more the app provides a comprehensive step by step explanation of each math problem instead of just finding out the solution or final answer for you. This helps in two ways: you can understand the concept behind how the particular question is solved and you can verify whether the app really did solve it the right and anticipated way.

Photomath also provides users with animated instructions and explanations of the math problems which further aids to the understanding of each solution. There’s also more than one explanation method in the app so you can choose to understand the concept in multiple ways to really learn the crux of it.

Photomath has support for graphs as well and calculates all problems that include arithmetic, integers, fractions, decimal numbers, algebra, calculus, roots, linear equations, trigonometry, functions, derivatives and integrals, quadratic equations, absolute equations and much more. In short, it’s a pretty solid math tool to have in your app!
