About Slader - Homework Answers

What is Slader - Homework Answers?

Slader is an app that offers user-generated answers to questions from thousands of different middle school, high school, and college textbooks. With Slader, students merely scan their textbook’s barcode and input the page number with their question to view step-by-step solutions to their problems (if available).

 

The Slader app is rated for users of all ages and is free to download and use, but does offer in-app purchases and advertisements.  It is available for download from both the App Store and the Google Play Store.

 

In theory, the Slader app can potentially be a huge help, especially for those struggling with difficult to grasp mathematical concepts. However, once one reads further, they find that all of Slader’s homework answers are user-generated which means that some, if not many, of the solutions are incorrect.

 

Unlike other homework-help apps, like Socratic, where reputable sites are scanned and used to provide answers and tutorials, Slader allows users to upload answers for their textbooks.

 

So, students really can’t rely on the Slader app to consistently offer assistance, as they’re at the whim of the user base and those kind enough to upload answers.

 

Thankfully, the Slader app is free, so it’s not necessarily a rip-off, but it does feature advertisements heavily. However, users can opt to have the ads removed from the app with what’s called a Slader Pro subscription for $1.99 a month.

 

While many apps typically charge a simple one-time fee for ad-removal, the Slader app charges monthly to remove ads from a platform where users provide the material.

Is Slader - Homework Answers safe for my kids?

From a parent standpoint the app could be a godsend for those students struggling to keep up in classes but the app admittedly isn’t really designed for that purpose.

Per the developers:

Have you ever stared at a blank piece of paper wishing you had a magic wand that could help you finish off that assignment in a flash? Slader is your magic wand!



Slader offers millions of step-by-step solutions to all the questions in the most popular textbooks in middle school, high school, and college. Math homework answers, Science homework answers, Spanish, History, Economics, and more! Slader’s got your back. And it’s all FREE!



So what are you waiting for? You can do your homework now or you can do it Slader. Do it Slader.

From the developer’s app description, it’s clear that the step-by-step solutions the app purports to offer are not really meant to be used for teaching, it’s meant to show the work involved in solving problems so that it can be copied quickly and turned in.

While not all students will use the Slader app to cheat on their schoolwork, it’s easy to see how it could be tempting, so parents should monitor the use of this app.

That’s not to say that the Slader app is without merit, as it can be a useful, free tool for students looking for additional enrichment in a particularly difficult subject area. Used with caution the Slader app can be a help.  This app can be safe for kids with parental supervision.
