Do you see these happy faces here? It wasn’t always this way, especially when it came to math homework. With everything going on in the world, I try my best to be there for my daughters and my brain wasn’t having it. It’s not an easy thing for me to say as I pride myself on being a pretty good mathematician. I did extremely well in high school with math as well as in Calculus too.
But, I have a confession to make. I needed help. All of those years of learning have blended together, and unless I have taught it recently, I need to spend days going over and reviewing. Some people have said it happens after pregnancy. Some have said I have a lot on my mind. Either way, I knew I needed help to explain to my daughter how to solve the problem and I am so glad that the Photomath app was able to help.
How the Photomath App with Math
While in the app, there are a variety of ways that it can help.
There are two ways to solve problems and get step-by-step explanations in Photomath.
You can use Camera mode:
- Take a photo of any math problem (handwritten or print-based) using your
- Photomath will solve the problem and give you detailed step-by-step explanations
for how to approach the problem
This way really worked for me as I wanted to be able to solve the math problems she was working on and then guide her through the process of solving them on her own. The Photomath app really wants the user to understand the math they are working on.
This is why I found the step-by-step explanations so useful. I did some on my own first and then showed her. Then I had my daughter look at the app and see the detailed explanations so that she had a better understanding, too.
The key for me was watching her do some problems without the assistance of the app or me. It was obvious to me that she now had a clear understanding and confidence. The app not only served as a tutor for me but for her as well. What’s great too is that since it is an app, you can use it anywhere, even on the go.
Photomath App wants to provide access to learning support for more people. The price point is more affordable than live tutoring and many of the features they’ve developed (and will continue to develop) are focused on truly understanding where students get stuck.
As an educator and a mom, I recommend Photomath to help you and your child have a positive math experience.

Looks like a very helpful app. I loved math but it’s been 40 years since I’ve had to use it much.
This would be a great app for my niece to use.

This looks so helpful! I struggled with math when I was in school, I still do. I could’ve used this when our daughter’s were in school, they struggled in it as well.
Wow. I love it takes you through HOW to solve the problem.

i love this idea, i wonder if it would help my kids!
Holy cow! I could have really used this app when my kiddo was in school! Between “new” math and advanced math classes, I was in trouble!

Math help websites were just starting when I was in high school and that was if I could even connect with AOL… I remember being so stressed about homework that was graded. I love that there are so many tools available now. Sometimes it just takes a more detailed or different way to show a solution for it to click. I can see how this can also be a very helpful tool for parents, too.

Wow! i wish I would have had this app when my kids were little.

Sarah Hayes says
I so need this! Math is my weakest subject and I have no idea how to help others with it.
This is a great way to help your kid understand what you can have trouble explaining!
