Parenting Be a Math Super Genius for your kids!

Recommended Posts

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... ?

That's pretty cool.  I put it on my phone then went around office looking for equations to solve.

This app is especially useful for parents who help their child in math exercise, but if kids discover this app it's not going to be good for them.
Thank you for sharing
