Students who need help solving math problems can use online problem solvers on the Discovery Education and Mathway websites or use a mobile problem-solving app like PhotoMath. These tools offer both the steps and direct answers to problems. Mathway is particularly good for its accuracy, states Yahoo News.
Discovery Education's WebMath tool is geared toward those needing help with elementary math, general math, algebra, calculus, trigonometry and geometry. Users select a type of math, enter the problem into the interface and then see each step in the problem-solving process.
Mathway's tool has a detailed interface with clickable symbols to use for entering problems. Although users can see the answers for free, a subscription is needed for step-by-step walkthroughs.
PhotoMath is available for Amazon Kindle, Android, Apple and Windows mobile devices. Users simply take a picture of the problem from a textbook and get options to see the answer and a walkthrough. This app is particularly good for being fast and simple, notes PhotoMath.
