Photomath app (iPhone / iPad; free) developed by Microblink, promotes the apps as the world’s first camera calculator. I have been well aware of using cameras to access text but math has always been a tough AT situation in my opinion. This app is pretty amazing. Although I have trialed it with just a few math problems, it worked quite well given that I had good lighting, the problems were spaced appropriately to capture just one equation on a the worksheet.
So it’s as simple as snapping a picture of an equation (no it won’t do work problems or conversion) and it calculates the answer and shows the steps. It also saves the problems previously calculated for later reference.
Amazing. Pictures of process:
Great for checking your work and understanding the math process for math expressions, fractions and decimals, powers and root and simple linear equations. There might be hope for me yet with math!
