Show Your Work
SHOW YOUR WORK – those words have been repeated many times by math teachers all over the world and now, there is a map that will help you do just that. Meet the PhotoMath app – a new app that’s the world’s first camera calculator. You just point your camera at the mathematical expression, and PhotoMath instantly displays the correct result. Children can use it as a tool to help them learn Math. And parents, we can use it to check our kids’ homework. It’s like a Math teacher in your pocket – so they say….
We started virtual school this year with our kids. I have to hand it to all home school parents. I am SO thankful for our 6th grader’s math teacher (and her other teachers – but especially Math.) I just don’t remember half of this stuff, I feel like I am learning right along with my student – and neither does my husband! I can’t wait to try this app out (unfortunately, it’s only available for iOS and Windows until early 2015 – then it will be available for Android.)
I have asked a teacher friend who teaches Algebra II, her thoughts on this. Her response when I asked if she thinks if kids could learn from this type of app…
Totally possible. But the kids will still need to be able to work the steps on tests.
