I also tried it on a weird fraction from an AP algebra exam, which it kind of failed at, but then I swiped over and it was showing me this graph, which included the correct answer: I love this app, not just because it would've helped 8th grade Paul out of a jam, but because it's such a computery use of computers.
You use the tiny computer in your pocket to be basically smarter than you already are.
I was homeschooled (that's not the confession part), and in 8th grade my algebra textbook had the answers to half the problems in the back. That seems to be the premise behind app called Socratic. The app lets you take a picture of a problem (you can also type it in, but that's a little laborious), and it'll not only give you an answer, but the steps necessary to to arrive at that answer — and even detailed explanations of the steps and concepts if you need them.
Of course, cheating at math is a terrible way to learn, because the whole point isn't to know the answer to 2x 2 = 7x - 5, it's to understand the learn?
You can use the free Mathway calculator and problem solver below to practice Algebra or other math topics.
Try the given examples, or type in your own problem and check your answer with the step-by-step explanations.For students who already know algebra, we have another section that consists of solving word problems using algebra.In addition to block diagrams and algebra, we also have a section that uses other types of problem solving strategies.The app is actually designed to answer any kind of school question — science, history, etc. For other kinds of questions, Socratic kind of does a bit of Googling, and in my experience can typically find similar word problems on the wide internet, or from its own database of answers.On about half the middle school science problems I tried, the app was able to identify the topic at question and show me additional resources about the concepts involved, but for others it was no more powerful than a simple web search.You can find area and volume of rectangles, circles, triangles, trapezoids, boxes, cylinders, cones, pyramids, spheres.You can simplify and evaluate expressions, factor/multiply polynomials, combine expressions.Solve all type of trigonometric (sin, cos, tan, sec, scs, cot) expressions, equations, inequalities. Solve integral problems - definite, indefinite integrals.Solve your probability, combination, permutation problems. Statistics - find median, mean (arithmetic, geometric, quadratic), mode, dispersion, mormal distributions, t-Distribution. I told her, “mom, the day I become good at math, pigs will fly.” I think pigs just flew. my mom always told me that one day I would be good at math.
