Point your smartphone at an equation and solve it with Mathpix App

Mathpix App will solve equations when you point your smartphone to it

Not everyone among us is a match wizard, in fact, some of hate math so much that we would avoid it like we avoid snakes. However, now with a new App, you can solve critical math equations just by pointing your smartphone to it.

Mathpix App for iOS devices uses image recognition technology to solve math equation. With Mathpix lets you point your phone camera at a problem and calculates solutions in seconds.

The interface looks like any standard camera app: simply drag the on-screen reticle over the equation and the app solves it and provides graph answers where appropriate. The app also provides a step-by-step guide to the multiple methods to reach a math solution. From the looks of it, this app will become a must have tool for students.

Do note that since, it uses image recognition to process problems and pings its servers to do the mathematical heavy lifting, so it likely requires an internet connection to work.

Mathpix was developed by Stanford PhD student Nico Jimenez, who was advised by Stanford grad Paul Ferrell. The app’s other developers are high schoolers Michael Lee and August Trollback. This team has developed this awesome App which may become a go too tool for high school students in near future.

You can download Mathpix from Apple iTune Store here.
