I'll leave this as an ethical problem for parents and grandparents to decide. I recently had to unlimber my long dormant math knowledge to help my grandson work out a formula. It hurt somewhat, but at least I remembered how. Then ironically I saw in an item in @heather's Evernote Daily News about 'photomath' - an iOS and Android app that will work out (and graph!) math problems for you, whilst explaining and teaching the process. Scan the problem with a camera and text recognition, plus built in math smarts, will work through the solution in teaching mode and give you an answer. If I'd had this back in the day, I would probably be stepping rapidly through the screens and just getting the answers for my workbook - but sadly I learned my math in a day when we were taught tables by rote, had actual printed books of logarithms and I thought a slide rule was "new tech". So stuff has been pounded in. I'd counsel caution in releasing information about this app to anyone under the age of 18 though - let 'em suffer! ? But for parents & GP's wrestling with problem-wracked pre-teens, and somewhat antiquated math knowledge, this might be a godsend... ? https://photomath.net/en/
I use Evernote mainly for academic purposes. Very often, I need to enter a formula. However, Evernote does not support this feature. So I write the formula in LaTex and make a screenshot. But this is not optimal, of course. I would love to see a formula editor. It could be a graphic one (like in Microsoft Word) or a "scripted" one like in LaTex.
It would be nice to have the ability to evaluate expressions in evernote. An example of implementation is calca. I use it sometimes to keep track of some of my electronics designs where the value of some component depends on other values. It allows me to iterate through design by just changing the values of my base assumptions the rest is getting computed Automatically. The examples in the calca page show other really cool use for this like budgeting. It would be nice to have the same capability in evernote so I don't have to switch editors.
I want to clip Math pages with formulas into Evernote. The formulas are rendered by MathJax http://www.mathjax.org/demos/copy-and-paste/ and just disappear when I clip the article : ( This makes the Evernote completely useless for Math, Physics, Chemistry lectures which are available online and rendered with MathJax. I tried now the webclipper in Chrome and Firefox - both don't work.
