Solve Hand-written Math Equations With Your Smartphone Using Mathpix

oh god help me

You’ll finally pass differential calculus!

Most of us just assume the fetal position and cry uncontrollably every time we a difficult math equation in our exams and textbooks, but there’s finally an app that will help end our struggles. Mathpix, an appp made by Stanford PhD student Nico Jimenez, Stanford grad Paul Ferrell and high school students Micheal Lee and August Trollback can solve complex math equations, even ones written by hand, by just taking photos of them.

Mathpix Demo from August Trollb├Ąck on Vimeo.

It’s pretty impressive to see the app in action, though the computations don’t happen on your phone – the image is sent to a central server first, before it sends back the solution to your phone. The best part is that the app isn’t a simple crutch that math-challenged students use – it gives you step-by-step guide on how it reached the solution, along with graphs which engineering students will find extra handy.

There’s no app download link for the app yet, though it’ll only be available in iOS once it’s done.

  1. More like PhotoMath on steroids, but knowing that it has to send the information to central server for the computation, PhotoMath takes the edge because I can do offline calculations.
