What is Socratic - Math Answers & Homework Help?

Socratic Math & Homework Help is an app that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to scan the web for answers to academic questions.


Rated for students ages 9 and older, the Socratic app requires users to be 13 years of age or older to use the app without parental supervision. Socratic Math & Homework Help is free to download and use, and does not contain any in-app purchases. This app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

 

To use Socratic Math & Homework Help, users must first allow the app access to their device’s camera, as the app uses photographs of homework questions to provide answers.

 

Using text recognition technology, the Socratic app asks users to take a photo of the homework question that’s stumping them and it scans the internet for reputable sources, experts and videos that provide the answer.

 

Socratic actively curates tutorial videos from sources such as Khan Academy and Crash Course. While using a device’s camera is the quickest and easiest way to utilize the Socratic Math & Homework Help app, the app also allows users to input both text and numerical questions. Thus, those users who do not want the app to access their device’s camera are provided an alternate option.  

Is Socratic - Math Answers & Homework Help safe for my kids?

Parents should know that Socratic, despite math being in the name, can assist students in a variety of academic disciplines such as science, English, history, economics, biology, and chemistry, among many others.

The burning question most parents likely have is whether or not using the Socratic app is equivalent to cheating. The reality is that yes, Socratic Math & Homework Help can be used as a crutch for those struggling to get through homework but the app can also teach along the way.

Because Socratic provides sources that explain the answers to homework questions, the app may be a cheaper alternative to a tutor for dedicated students who are struggling in math or a similar subject.

Dedicated being the keyword, as those lacking any desire to tackle and learn complex problems will fall into the category of those students using Socratic as a crutch or as a tool for cheating.

Parents should have a general idea of which type of student their child falls into, and should monitor or supervise the use of the Socratic Math & Homework Help app accordingly.

The Socratic Math & Homework Help app can also be a great help for parents who desire to assist their child in homework. With the changes in mathematical reasoning and problem-solving, many parents find themselves unable to assist even elementary school-aged children with math homework.

The Socratic app can help guide parents through example problems and teach them how students are now expected to solve and show work for completing mathematical problems, allowing them to help their children through stumbling blocks.

Parents should not have any significant concerns with the Socratic Math & Homework Help app, as it merely curates information found across the internet that correlates with the question asked.

Parents of struggling or disengaged students should be especially vigilant in monitoring their child’s use of the Socratic app as it can easily be used as a crutch instead of learning aid.

This app is safe for kids with parental supervision.
