PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web

PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web | Web 2.0 for Education | 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.


Via Dennis T OConnor
Lee Hall's insight:

I think it is helpful when you are working at home to be able to solve a problem and make sure it is right. I hated finding out I had completed a page of problems all the wrong way.
