Use this FREE algebra calculator to check the answers to your homework problems.
Yes! I've found that students who are struggling with Algebra do make progress when using an online algebra calculator appropriately.
Appropriately is the key word there! Is it ok to use the calculator to copy the answers and even the steps and then turn in to your teacher?
No, of course not. Plus since there are many ways to solve one problem, the chances of your teacher finding out are pretty good.
However, when the calculator is used to make sure that you are on the right track or to help you find a mistake, it can be a great learning tool.
As you are completing your homework, use the calculator to check your answers. If your answers are correct, then you are on the right track and this should give you peace of mind.
However, if you find that your answers are incorrect, you will want to try and figure out where you are making mistakes.
This calculator can also help you to find your mistakes. If you subscribe, you can get step-by-step solutions to any problem. Compare the step-by-step solution to your answer and see if you can identify where you made your mistake.
Typically, once you make a mistake, you learn from that mistake and you don't continue to make that same error. Thus, the calculator has just helped you to identify mistakes and make corrections, much like a tutor.
I've researched several online calculators and this one is the best. It provides the most details or steps for each individual problem. It also solves equations using the same process that I model on Algebra Class.
One of the features that I really like, that sets it apart from it's competition, is the amount of detail offered for each problem.
For example, when I input a linear equation to be graphed, many online calculators just offer the graph. However, this calculator converts the equation to slope intercept form (if needed) and identifies the slope and y-intercept.
These are all key concepts in graphing that will help students who are struggling.
Check out some of their great examples of the step-by-step solutions that are provided for many types of problems.
If you just want the answer to a problem, then the calculator is free!
However, if you are struggling or just want to check your work in detail, with step-by-step solutions, the monthly subscription rate is just $19.99 per month.
Mathway provides a monthly and yearly subscription rate. If you subscribe monthly, you can cancel at anytime.
