Ok, so your professor may not approve of this week’s app, but you should check out Photomath anyway. The name pretty much says it all. You use your camera to scan a math problem, and the app tells you the answer. College Algebra never sounded so easy.

Not only does Photomath do the work for you, it shows you step-by-step instructions on how to solve the problem. So hey, maybe you can actually learn something from using this app. It will graph out simple equations, it can tell you the y-intercept, do you feel smarter yet?

If all of that wasn’t enough, you can use the app to type in math problems. So, if you are worried about your T.A. telling you to put your phone down, just tell them you are using a calculator, type in the equation and let the app do the work.

Let’s be clear, Maroon Weekly thinks you should actually learn the content your professors are teaching you, but Algebra is just dumb. Nobody needs to know that stuff.
