Remember maths "guide" books from the good old school days?
The ones that provided step-by-step solutions to each and every problem in your textbook?
It works with printed text, and even then there can be some garbled text, so a little light text editing after the picture is taken is required at times.
One limitation is that the app doesn't support equations with brackets.
The app includes a range of functions including trigonometry, logarithms, exponential functions and it includes an equation history so you can see what work you did to reach your results.
Equation syntax highlighting, bracket highlighting, and separate modes for scientific and engineering calculations make it a great choice, but most of all, this free app is also ad free.
You can unlock the pro version with an in-app purchase.4.
My Script Calculator This app recognises your handwriting, so you can draw equations on the screen and it will solve them right away. We like this app very much, but it doesn't always recognise handwriting perfectly.
The various app stores also have a number of scientific calculators available for cheap, or free, making this handy tool far more accessible than back in the day when it used to cost a small fortune.
This is by no means a comprehensive list, but we tried a bunch of apps and found these to be the best in making maths (almost) fun.1.
