New app helps students solve math equations. Now that Wolfram Alpha and MicroBlink make solving complex equations easier, will math teachers harness this to push students towards solving more open-ended real-world problems? Or will schools try to block the software and consider it “cheating?”
MicroBlink’s newly unveiled PhotoMath for iOS and Windows Phone . . . uses your smartphone’s camera to scan math equations and not only solve them, but show the steps involved.
