Are you, as a parent, struggling to help your child with homework?
Well guess what, there are all sorts of apps for that.
With the introduction of Common Core, which makes basic math look like something from outer space, it’s no wonder we’re lost (and sometimes our kids)
These Best Homework Apps will help students in several subject areas and help you to help them.
If Algebra and Geometry are foreign languages to you, these apps will become your translator!
The Best Homework Apps
Whether it’s solving a super difficult math problem, taking better notes or working on chemistry formulas – there’s an app for that and these are the best homework apps for students at a variety of levels.
Math Solver Apps
Working on algebra, trigonometry, geometry, or calculus? Stuck on a problem and can’t get it figured out? Well, there is a whole family of apps that have become super popular in this area called math solver apps.
Photomath is probably one of the most popular and is available on itunes and Android. All you have to do with these is point your camera at the problem you’re trying to figure it out and voila, step by step instructions will appear. Now in the hands of our kids, these solver apps could be used for both good and evil. So, be careful before you let them in on the secret to your math super power.
This app, while similar to the Photomath app, it actually takes things to another level and allows you to send a picture of your problem to an experienced, professional tutor and get instant help.
The app itself is free and you’re given a certain “bank” of minutes to communicate with the tutor. You can earn more minutes by inviting friends to download the app, paying per minute for help, or joining a monthly subscription service. FREE on iTunes and Android
This app is perfect for those needing to create their own flashcards, especially useful for high school and college students studying for the SAT, ACT, or GRE. With these cards, students can study anywhere by flipping through their phones while waiting or on the go.
