Math Helpers

Leo Chung, Tech Writer


For any of you math-doing folks out there doing any sort of math, it’s important to know what you are doing. One of the best ways to indicate that you DO know what you are doing is usually getting the right answer. However, sometimes that isn’t immediately available.

You have a problem, you did it, and now you want to find out if you are right. Luckily, the internet provides us with two incredibly useful websites. These got me through Mr. Mazaheri’s Algebra II/Trigonometry class relatively unscathed. They helped me quickly understand what was being taught, allowing me to excel on his tests.

The first website being showcased is the all-helpful:

Yes, the almighty Symbolab Math Solver. From basic arithmetic to advanced calculus, this handy website takes any equation and solves it, giving you the answer.

All you need to do is simply enter an equation. Symbols like infinity or absolute value are provided in the box above, where clicking it inserts it into your equation.

But for earnest learners, the answer is simply not enough for grasping a concept.

This is the reason why Symbolab also provides steps for solving each equation. It details every step it makes, helping you learn how the answer was made.


The second website being showcased is:

Math isn’t all just numbers and letters but it’s also represented in graphs. As you move on to higher and higher levels of math, graphs quickly become important as you need to frequently graph functions, inequalities, and such. This website accomplishes this task for you as you simply need to input a function.

As you can see from the picture, it can graph and shade when you’re working with inequalities. It can graph parabolas, circles, and more complex graphs.

Hopefully, these websites will make it a lot easier for you to figure out problems you are stuck on. Good luck and be proactive in your education!
