App of the Week: Socratic - Math Answers and Homework Help.
Supports subjects including Math (Algebra, Calculus, Statistics, Graphing, etc), Science, Chemistry, History, English, Economics, and more.
The Socratic App promises instant results to help those with homework struggles. All you have to do is point your camera phone at the question/section you're struggling with and take a photo of it. You'll get INSTANT explanations, videos, and step-by-step help. You can also click on the "ABC" to move away from the camera mode so you can manually type the question. With no In-App purchases and completely free, I think Socratic are on to a winner here!
How does the Socratic App work?
Take a picture of a homework problem
AI (Artificial Intelligence) instantly figures out which concepts you need to focus on and learn in order to answer it
Socratic’s AI combines cutting-edge computer vision technologies which read the questions from the image and it uses millions of homework answer samples.
The AI uses this data to identify the concept required to answer the problem/question
The Visual support is created by Socratic's team of educators from sources like Khan Academy, Crash Course and more.
The Socratic App is beneficial to the children doing the homework. It also has a positive knock-on effect on the parents that are supervising, especially those that may not know the answer themselves.
The App is Time-Saving: forget all that time spent browsing on search engines looking for the answers. We've all been there, typing in a million different variations of the question and hoping to find a match. Even if you do find the match, you may not understand how it was answered. Socratic provides you with the explanation, the video tutorials, the definitions and a Q&A section.
The App Interface is extremely User-Friendly, you can't go wrong unless the image you capture is indistinguishable.

Using this app has taken me back to my school days. Sunday evenings, in particular, I remember staring at my maths book and copy, hoping that the answer would jump out at me or at the very least, give me some kind of a clue! It never happened. I was lucky to have a Maths Genius for a brother so I always got there in the end. Not everyone is as lucky as I was though so this is definitely an App to keep your eye on and it is an App that will remain installed and in use!
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope, if you decide to use this app, it helps you as much as it helped me and the masses!
