PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web - Larry Ferlazzo

PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web - Larry Ferlazzo | ipadification | Scoop.it
You may have already heard about PhotoMath, the new iPhone app that lets you point it at a math problem on a textbook and then solves it while showing all the work involved.


Some are immediately reacting by citing it’s potential use in “cheating,” while others cheer that it might force math teachers and textbook publishers to be more creative in how they teach math. In some ways, it may force them to do what some of us in other subjects have been looking at — creating unGoogleable questions.


Here are some useful posts about the app, along with a video."

Yes, a friend texted me link to the site just yesterday. His take is that it works quite well, except that it struggles to pick up negative numbers if that number begins the math problem.
Melissa Marshall's comment, October 27, 2014 3:43 AM
Good to know - thanks Chris.
Allan Shaw's curator insight, October 27, 2014 5:40 PM

The promo looks slick. I suspect that it does not work quite that well based on some preliminary feedback. But even if it does work well, it seems it might achieve what  WolframAlpha can do without the typing.

It and similar technologies will sensibly provide Maths teachers with a good reason to reflect upon their practice. Good teaching cannot be replaced by a machine as it contains a positive relational component.

perhaps the reverse could be true: Any teacher who can be replaced by technology, probably should be replaced if they are no better than a machine.
