Students may find the app Photo Math an amazing boon. Mathematics teachers may find it a potential challenge. As amazing as Photo Math is, it could be at best, meddlesome and at worst, disruptive to the instructional process.
The user simply takes a picture of the math problem (or a whole page of math problems) and the app deciphers the syntax of the problem and solves it.
Right now, the app can handle arithmetic expressions, fractions, powers, roots and linear equations but supposedly they’re working on calculus level equations.
