Is Photomath - Camera Calculator safe for my kids?

Photomath, in its essential function, is a safe app for kids to use, that function being math and math only, without options to chat or meet people.

The real question is about cheating, or relying on the app where the brain should be applied.

Parents should know that the app will provide solutions to kids’ math homework quickly and easily, and while it does provide the steps to attaining the solution, those can easily be glossed over in the name of expediency.

Now, there are certainly benefits to this stunning technology, as Photomath can really help when students are stuck on a tough problem, and teach them the method to solving it, which is great for those who are honestly struggling. But I’m sure we can all see how this could easily be abused, as human nature tells us the path of least resistance is often the path taken, especially when the task at hand is one that we in which we have low interest.

For many, math is a task in which we have low interest, and Photomath can provide that path of least resistance. Using Photomath as a tool for expediency hinders development in math, while providing false results of success, which becomes a serious problem when test time comes around and kids realize they do not know how to solve the problems because they had relied on the app for every round of practice.

Photomath is not allowed in the SATs. But further than just tests, these math skills are valuable for the rest of our lives, and by relying on Photomath for the sake of finishing homework quickly will deprive kids of those important skills.

The key to safe usage is responsibility and honesty from kids, and attentiveness and guidance from parents, who should take the time to make sure kids are not abusing Photomath.
