The first step to effectively translating and solving word problems is to read the problem entirely.
Don't start trying to solve anything when you've only read half a sentence.
This overhelmed him and he felt ashamed because he didn't "get it" right away like he always had. Photomath was able to show him how to get to the correct answer and the light bulb came on. I love math but on occasions, no matter how much you show your students how to do long division they just can't get it. Being trusted by millions is one of our proudest achievements to date.
The joy he felt when he actually understood the problem he was looking at was amazing. Photomath is a proud winner of 4YFN competition in Barcelona, the world's largest startup competition on mobile technologies and business models.
If the former, what does this mean, in practical terms?
(And, if you can't think of any meaningful definition, then maybe you need to slow down and think a little more about what's going on in the word problem.) In all cases, don't be shy about using your "real world" knowledge.
I did this on a calculus test — thank heavens it was a short test! (Technically, the "greater than" construction, in "Addition", is also backwards in the math from the English.
— and, trust me, you don't want to do this to yourself! Certain words indicate certain mathematica operations. But the order in addition doesn't matter, so it's okay to add backwards, because the result will be the same either way.) Also note that order is important in the "quotient/ratio of" and "difference between/of" constructions.
Behold Photo Math, a new free photo calculator app that solves math equations in a snap -- a snap of your smartphone’s camera.
Oh, yeah, kids, it’s real and it’s finally here, but not without a few kinks. And, when you turn your math work in, your teacher might get the sinking suspicion that you’re calling in some serious tech backup to get your homework done (a.k.a.
