CameraMath - Homework Help Review

CameraMath solves math problems from images captured live or from a device's saved photographs. It helps kids check their answers and, where they are wrong,shows them how to correct their approach, making it ideal as a homework helper.

The app is aimed at kids age  13 and older. CameraMath is free to download on iOS and Android devices, and after a free trial, user access is continued through a subscription.

What is CameraMath app?

CameraMath is a photo-based math-solver app. You take a picture either with your device's camera or from your saved photos, crop the area of interest to the relevant question, and tap solve. The app's artificial intelligence (AI) extracts the key information. It solves the math problem by presenting the results in steps that the user can follow to solve similar questions.

CameraMath adds additional features to this core functionality. One section of the app comprises geometry calculators to make it easy to solve problems based on shapes.

Another feature lets premium users ask the advice of math experts. A question that is too complex for the app's AI to extract the relevant information could prompt such an inquiry. Or, users who still can't understand a method from the app's solution might find a bit of extra human-provided guidance makes all the difference.

What we love about CameraMath.

We can't ask more of an app than what it promises, and CameraMath does what it describes and does it well. Straightforward questions, captured in good light and clearly written, were scanned and processed effectively.

When the app struggles with the conditions or style of question, it does so gracefully, offering assistance from the internet. Premium users can also ask for help from the app's human mathematicians, who will respond quickly.

This is a minor point, but one we appreciate: many subscription-based apps provide guides for signing up and using the app but go silent on unsubscribing.

CameraMath includes a step-by-step guide to ending the subscription. Obviously, the developers of CameraMath hope you won't, but they are confident enough in their app's capabilities to let those keep you as a customer instead of opaque processes.

What skills does it improve?

Arithmetic, algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, trigonometric, statistics, and geometry questions are solvable by CameraMath.

What age is it appropriate for?

CameraMath's privacy policy clarifies that the app's target users are over the age of 13. While it can solve simple math questions, an app such as this would seem overkill for elementary-level math, and younger children would lack the maturity to use it appropriately for learning rather than cheating.

Is CameraMath easy to use?

CameraMath uses a common navigation format to move between sections. The screen remains uncluttered as the app only presents options that are relevant to the current task.

How will students benefit?

Students will need to use CameraMath responsibly. They could cheat with it, as they could with any app that solves questions or lets the user seek the advice of mathematicians.

However, used appropriately, CameraMath will help kids be sure that they understand the math. Knowing that they have answered each question correctly as they go will ensure that a misunderstanding does not lead to a period of hard work resulting in a page of incorrect answers. Such an experience can harm the confidence of kids, and using CameraMath appropriately will avoid this.

How will teachers benefit?

Teachers may be concerned that their students could use CameraMath to cheat, but such deception would be easy to spot. In many ways, having access to CameraMath is not so different from textbooks that have the answers in the back.

Teachers can rest assured that their students with access to CameraMath aren't being left unsupported with math homework that they may find challenging.

In lessons, CameraMath can speed up creating diagrams for front-of-class explanations. For example, teachers can take any worksheet and quickly produce a clear visual aid to help the class with any difficulties. In an algebra question, the step-by-step solution and the equation graph are displayed in the app and could be mirrored to a class display.

How will parents benefit?

Lack of practice or confidence can make helping kids with math homework stressful for parents. CameraMath will help parents be sure that they are guiding their kids correctly and help to refresh their knowledge. Working together to learn from CameraMath's results will be a good shared learning experience that will help motivate and support kids.

What can CameraMath improve on?

As well as providing potential purchasers information about the app, CameraMath's supporting website adds some extra value. It provides concise and clear information, both written and in short-form videos, on solving different problems and practical, step-by-step examples. This content is great, but it would be even better if featured in the app so that premium users could get easier direct access.

How much does CameraMath cost?

CameraMath is free to download and offers all users seven days of premium features.

What is included with the free version vs. paid?

The full capabilities of CameraMath require you to have a subscription. Following the free trial, you have the options of monthly, half-yearly and yearly. The longer periods have a lower per month cost. There is only a small gap in price between the six and twelve-month subscriptions, so we recommend the latter if you intend to use the app long term.

Is CameraMath safe to use?

CameraMath has a clear privacy policy that explains its use of data well. While the app's store page shows that it tracks location, the privacy policy clarifies that this is at the country level, and the app does not request access to the device's precise location.

One unexpected permission request is for the app to be able to track your activity across other companies' apps and websites. During this review, that permission was denied but didn't appear to harm the user experience in any way.

CameraMath does not contain any ads. Users can communicate with the app's math tutors and send copies of the problems they have captured to other users of the app.

Overall rating of the app.

Math solver apps feel almost like magic. Pointing your device's camera at a math problem and receiving a solution broken down into steps would have seemed something for the far future not too many years ago. CameraMath isn't the only such app, but it is a five-star example of one.

It is easy to use, gives clear, accurate responses, and works well on different screen sizes. Parents and teachers should make it clear to kids that letting them have such an app is an act of trust, but used well, CameraMath will be a reassuring and educational presence on students' devices.
