Cheat On Math Homework
The potential here, though, could be scary to those who think that kids should learn math technology-free, like they did back in the days of chalkboards.
I contacted my daughter’s algebra teacher, Marla Sanders, to see what she thought of the tech.
It is a real pain just typing your questions to email them to a tutor, and if there are a lot of mathematical formulas and/or diagrams, this is next to impossible!What’s really important to me is that my daughter learns how to think abstractly and logically, which is what algebra does for her.If she needs a tool like Photo Math to help her find out how a tricky math problem is solved, well, then, I’m all for it.She tried to use it on her worksheet, which was full of linear inequalities to graph.Photo Math won’t do those, nor will it solve quadratic equations, functional equations, equation systems or calculus problems.Sometimes the words of the question might stay the same, but the numerical values might change.For example the 50.0 miles per hour in the question above might be switched to 55.0 miles per hour, so you might try a search for only the text part in double quotes.My math-averse daughter wanted to cheat on her algebra homework.So we downloaded Photo Math, a free app that lets you take a picture of your mathematical and algebraic equations, solving them for you and showing the steps to the solution.As a tutor, I try to ask students to learn the material and ask me questions that they are having trouble with. Does a guidance counselor ever use the formula for an ellipse or convert grams to moles or calculate the trajectory of an arrow shot from a bow at an angle of 33.2 degrees above the horizon with an initial speed of 42.8 m/s? So while some people might look down on homework help or homework cheating, I don't see it as a huge sin and those who do can jump in a lake (with piranhas! I warn students that they typically need to know the material to pass their class exams, so please don't view this as a complete "get out of jail free card". I understand that most students taking college algebra, physics, or chemistry will seldom use the information in those courses and I would rather see someone get on with their life and get a job than get held back.
