Overview

MATHdoozy offers students a way to get help solving tricky math problems in real-time. The app allows students to take a photo of or type in a problem and submit it.

Problems are solved quickly and in real-time, offering students help when and where they need it.

Features include:

  • Real-time problem solving
  • Ability to take a picture of problem
  • Purchase credits to solve more problems

Quality

When students first open the app, they’re prompted to sign up or sign in. In order to use the app, students must have an account. Creating an account requires an e-mail address, phone number (optional) and password. Students are also prompted to select a username and their grade-level. On the opening screen, students will find a video tutorial to help them navigate through the app and understand the credit system. It is helpful to watch this video, but the app is easy to figure out even if they don’t. When attempting to sign up or login, the app often crashes, so it may take multiple tries to successfully login and get started. Students can access the same service by logging in online, but they must upload problems in a .pdf format.

Education

The idea behind the app is to help students get real-time math help. Students can upload a PDF of a problem, type in the problem, or even just take a photo of the problem. Then they submit it to the solvers. Developers note that the solvers have been tested and come from some of the top universities in the world. They are also available to help 24/7, so students can get help whenever they need it. When you’re able to use the app, the solutions do come quickly and are accurate.

Entertainment

This app is not being rated for entertainment.

Value

While the app is free to download, it is accompanied by in-app purchases. Students aren’t given the solutions for free. Instead, each solution costs money. Students can opt to pay as they go or to buy a bundle. Adults can also gift solution packages to students. Solutions aren’t cheap, so students shouldn’t expect to use this app to get answers to ever problem. Instead, it’s designed as a tool to help when they really get stuck.

Child Friendliness

This app requires a student’s e-mail address and grade-level. It also suggests adding a phone number. Developers note that the solvers don’t know a student’s name. Students should take care not to include their names on any problems they submit. The app also has in-app purchases to allow students to purchase additional credits.
