Is Photomath a cheating tool?

As with any technology, we believe there are optimal methods of using Photomath, and our emphasis with the app is how to approach problems through clear and intuitive explanations. In other words, we strive to help students develop a deeper understanding of math concepts through the smart use of technology.

We want students to appreciate the mathematics that underlies Photomath and to become skilled users with healthy habits and the ability to mentally check the feasibility of answers. In fact, 75% of students report using Photomath to check their answers. Students should be encouraged to use Photomath to check their answers to practice problems, compare their solutions, and identify any missteps in their calculations.
