Can You Help Me With My Geometry Homework Answer
google, the internet's largest search engine, has added more functionality to its already popular offerings. the website has given its search service the ability to perform mathematical calculations–simply typing a formula into the search box will return the answer. additionally, the formula can be formatted in several different ways, such as 35*10, thirty five * ten, or even thrity five times ten.
but the calculator goes beyond simple multiplication and subtraction. within its functionality is the ability to perform conversions, such as meters to a mile or teaspoons in a cup. finally, as suggested by google's calculator description, the search engine “can evaluate mathematical expressions involving basic arithmetic (5+2*2 or 2^20), more complicated math (sine(30 degrees) or e^(i pi)+1).”

christopher's opinion
too bad google can't also make a “way-back machine” so i can retake some of my early algebra classes. man, do kids nowadays have it easy! i remember being excited when solar calculators came onto the market.
google just keeps adding to its functionality, which is why it remains the number one search engine. as others such as yahoo! and askjeeves try to keep pace, google continues to raise the bar. i still use both yahoo! and google, but more and more i rely on the latter.
sure, the calculator is a little gimmicky. how many times does a person really need to know anything to do with math, gigawatts, miles per hour, and newtons? but it will be a nice little resource the next time i get confused trying to remember how many fluid ounces in a cup or pecks in bushel.
is it the greatest thing ever? not even close, but it makes google that much stronger.

google*mart(9:32am est tue aug 19 2003) next…google allows you to search wal*mart with your cell phone to find out exactly where the lightbulbs are. – by m@ |
you'd be surprised christopher!(9:41am est tue aug 19 2003) “how many times does a person really need to know anything to do with math, gigawatts, miles per hour, and newtons?” there are lots of people who have to deal with this daily. i am one of them. i use google all the time for research, so why not use it for calculating complex formulas for something such as fiber optics! – by scientist |
really?(9:42am est tue aug 19 2003) “or even thrity five times ten.” so it fixes the typo, then gives you the correct result? astounding. – by simon |
you know,(9:45am est tue aug 19 2003) this sounds great, but as a software developer dealing with vector graphics, when i need to find out about some algebra formulae, or other 3d equations, the internet is almost always the last place i look. it's not that you can't find answers to your math problems online, it is just that you have to wade through countless web sites dedicated to teaching you how to solve the problems, rather then solutions to those problems. searching for a solution to an algebra problem, i had to skip 7 full screens of google results to find a site that actually had the formula i was looking for, the previous seven pages of results were from high schools and universities that offered test and quiz questions (without answers by the way), and student pages about the proof of the formula, not on how to solve it. i can understand that students need to learn how to solve these problems, not just handed the solution, but i already paid my dues and went to school. so, when i want answers, i want anwsers, period. hopefully, more sites like this will be dedicated to answering math problems, rather then attempting to teach you. i allready lernd all i want, and i ain't interested in lernin' any more. i gets paid for providing solushuns, not lernin'. – by topher |
not science(9:48am est tue aug 19 2003) i think this is a great idea, except what good does it do me to know that one hundred million times one hundred million = 1.0 � 10^16 ?? i want the full spelled out number! so i have this strange fascination with numbers, so what? – by 10011010 |

i have been (10:00am est tue aug 19 2003) trying to teach my 9 year old granddaughter to do simple math in her head. it seems to me that folks are intent on 'dumbing down' everything as much as possible. if your power is down, ( what? no electricity??) and you cannot do math in your head, or with pencil and paper, ( i'll confess, i can not do quadratics in my head.(( i guess i'm gettin old too, topher))maybe you should apply for a job at the saw mill. – by darwin |
topher(10:05am est tue aug 19 2003) you sound like a good guy, but we both read the latest tech news. if we are not prepared to learn whatever new gizmo which is going to be headlined in next monday's “geek.com” maybe we both can get a job at ” thet ol' (patoie) sawr mill. saw if you are from the northeast, sawr, if you are from the north west. :) – by darwin |

calculators(12:35pm est tue aug 19 2003) calculators and formula 'cheat sheets' don't dumb you down they rid you of the trivial tasks and allow you to focus on larger problems. who cares if you have to look something up. as long as you know what you're looking for and more importantly how to apply it, all is golden. in the real world, the one that depends on electricity, there are plenty of calculators. they make us smarter. this entire argument that we would be lost/ignorant/helpless without technology is so old. without technology there is no way we could feed 6 billion people. without calculators we won't be able to feed 10 billion. get used to it. there's no going back. – by lb1 |

dumbing down?(1:20pm est tue aug 19 2003) calculators don't dumb us down, hell i was taking college math classes that required state of the art $200 dollar calculators just to take the class. they help speed up our knowledge and apply the steps for us, imagine you're on a space flight, re-entering the atmosphere and a problem arises. “sir, we're losing our vector due to wind velocity, let me punch it in to the computer and have it calculate a course correction!”. “well, sorry bob, the computers calculation functions were removed due to the fact it dumbs us up, give me a couple hours and i'll figure out the correction on paper!” – by crevin |
dumb versus unreasonable(2:03pm est tue aug 19 2003) the problem with *only* doing math on a calculator or computer is that you don't get a “feel” for numbers. when the kids today accidently punch in 100 * 2, instead of 1.00 * 2, they don't even notice that 200 is an *unreasonable* answer for two times one. that's the real problem. – by dung |
blind reliance(2:08pm est tue aug 19 2003) i think what darwin was referring to was blind reliance on technology. yes, your $200 calculator can save you a lot of time by performing simple steps for you, but if you don't understand the underlying concept, you haven't learned how to do the calculation. you've simply learned to punch numbers into a formula. i knew way too many people in college who treated math as a black box (numbers in – answer out), and it ended up biting them in the a$$ come test time. my freshman chem professor taught us to do logs in our heads so that we would have an idea if the number our calculator gave us was in the ballpark. if you were one of those people who understood the concept and used the technology to further that knowledge, then good for you. you have mastered a very powerful tool. – by laserman |
calculator vs computer???(2:56pm est tue aug 19 2003) it doesn't take google's calculator to dumb down america. it's already being done quite well by our television programing and other aspects of our society. in addition, it's often not the teachers, but rather the apathetic lazy attitude of people that believe they deserve everything while doing the least possible amount of work/effort. pardon the digression. my thoughts on google is that windows operating systems (and other systems)already have a calculator program that does complex math. so if someone wants to take the extra time to go to google and type out equations in long format, that's their perogative. as for something that does mathamatical conversions, i found a simple free non-invasive program called “convert” that is much easier to use than google will ever be. such programs are easily found at in the end, those people who do complex math are more prone to already have a scientific calculator to assist them. scientific calculators are more conveinent and are also cheaper than the monthly internet cost to use google for math. if you don't know how to use a calculator, you ought to have spent more time listening to the teachers while you were in school. life doesn't need to be further compartmentalized. – by meson |
a little too late(3:01pm est tue aug 19 2003) why couldn't this be done while i was taking all of those physics classes? – by esqin |
no calculator, no problem(3:07pm est tue aug 19 2003) i seemed to make it through college fine without a $200 calculator and i got a degree in math. the classes that required the graphing calculators were the 1000 level classes for business and non-technical majors. i did depend on math world at wolfram research (mentioned by math man). i would have to say that i am impressed with the calculator from google, not because of its calculation ability, but because it is “smart.” i thought that i could give it a problem it couldn't solve. i asked it for “100 calories in calories” and it recognized the difference in capitalization giving me the answer “100 calories = 0.1 kilocalorie.” – by another math man |

when(3:53pm est tue aug 19 2003) i was in college back in 1964, a physics prof told me that my not knowing how to use a slide rule should get me removed from his class. i sat down and learned how to use one. my objection is not that someone uses a tool to save time, but mis-using the tool because one is too lazy to try to learn how. lets face it, i cannot do matching orbital velocity vectors in my head, *or* on paper. but, i save a few bucks a year because i can do sales tax in my head, close to a couple of pennies. the kid who is punching items on the registers touch pad has no idea if the total is right or not. and most of them don't care! – by darwin |

m0r0m0n(1:17am est wed aug 20 2003) as i teacher, i'm offended by your comment. the greatest teacher in the world can't teach children who aren't willing to learn. and children who aren't willing to learn get that way by having parents who aren't willing to reinforce the importance of having a good education. these are the same parents who use video games, the computer, and tv as a babysitter. look at how little teachers are paid, and you'll understand the value us society places on formal education. those who go into teaching often do so because they're good at it, dedicated to helping, and don't mind living from paycheck to paycheck. if you want better teachers, learn to be more hands-on parents and don't gripe when your community increases taxes to give teachers raises and attract talented people into education. otherwise, you're perpetuating the problem. – by sam |
like kids don't have calculators(1:48am est wed aug 20 2003) why the heck does google think kids would rather wait two minutes for their computer to boot up, another 2 minutes to dial up the internet and then type in their math problems. kids have 99 cent freakin calculators in their backpacks that can do it all for the them. i can understand a complete idiot like al gore (board of directors) promoting this, but come on my fellow geekians. – by thegoodgeek |
here we go again…(10:08am est wed aug 20 2003) god, if i hear another teacher complain about how tough they have got it. 1) they only work about eight months a year with vacations and days off. 2) they get better benifits than 90% of the rest of us working stiffs. 3) most teachers only teach a couple a classes a day. 4) in cleveland where i live, the average salary for a teacher is over $33,000/year with a ba and over $60,000/year with a ma. not too shabby when you take everything into account. – by bah! |
re: bah!(6:39am est thu aug 21 2003) ok, i'd like to see you try teaching anything to a room full of 14 yr olds. since you seem so knowledgeable about how things should be, why don't you jog on over to your nearest high school, and volunteer to help out for a day or two. i doubt you'd hold the same perspective after an experience in a real learning environment. stupid git. – by sliver7 |

In the field of educational technology, some apps might be getting too smart.
More and more apps are delivering on-demand homework help to students, who can easily re-purpose the learning tools to obtain not just assistance, but also answers. Whether or not that’s cheating—and how to stop it—is one of the concerns surrounding a new app that can solve math equations with the snap of a camera. While the software has inspired teachers to create real-world homework problems that can’t be automatically solved, that strategy doesn’t hold up to other apps that tap into real-life brains for solutions.
Here’s a look at 7 apps that can do your homework for you, and what they have to say about cheating:
PhotoMath
Price: Free
Availability: iOS, Android app coming in early 2015
The new, seemingly magic app allows users to take pictures of typed equations, and then outputs a step-by-step solution. As of Wednesday, the app is the number one free app on the App Store. But the biggest issue, one teacher argues, isn’t if students will use the app to cheat, because many will. Rather, it’s about how teachers will adapt. A PhotoMath spokeswoman said educators have welcomed the app with positive reviews, but the software remains “quite controversial.”
“We didn’t develop PhotoMath as a cheating tool. We really wanted kids to learn,” said Tijana Zganec, a sales and marketing associate at tech company MicroBlink, which created PhotoMath. “If you want to cheat, you will find a way to cheat. But if you want to learn, you can use PhotoMath for that.”
iHomework
Whether you’re a high schooler with eight periods of classes or a college student tackling dozens of credits, there’s one thing you’ve got for sure: a mess of assignments. iHomework can help you keep track of all your work, slicing and dicing it in a variety of ways. Sorting it by due date, week, month, or by course, the app is more organized than a Trapper Keeper. And in integrating data from Questia, you can link your reading material to your assignments so you don’t have to dig through a pile of papers to find the right information.
A scheduling feature can help you keep track of those random bi-weekly Thursday labs, and you can even mark the location of your courses on a map so you don’t end up on the wrong side of campus. And finally, with iCloud syncing, you can access all this information on whatever Apple-compatible device you’re using at the moment — no need to dig for your iPad.
Google Apps for Education
Taking the search giant’s suite of free browser-based apps and sandboxing them so they are safe for school use, Google Apps for Education is an excellent alternative to the mainstream installable productivity software, but this one has a perk that almost school board will love—it’s free. Packaging together favorites like Gmail, Hangouts, Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Drive with Classroom, a digital hub for organizing assignments and sending feedback, the goal of this collection is to make learning a more collaborative process.
Though Google Apps for Education is cloud-hosted, the programs can be used offline, ideal for when your student needs to escape the internet and work distraction-free. And since it works on any device, it also helps students avoid buying overly expensive hardware. That means more money for extracurricular activities.
HwPic
Price: Free, but some homework services require payment

HwPic is a tutoring service that allows students to take send pictures of their homework to tutors, who will then respond within minutes to your questions with a step-by-step solution. There’s even an option to expedite the answers if a student is in a hurry. HwPic Co-Founder Tiklat Issa said that the app was initially rejected by Apple’s App Store, which believed it would promote cheating, but he successfully argued that just because someone uses the app in a way that it’s not meant to be used doesn’t mean the app should be punished.
Issa added that HwPic prohibits cheating in its terms and conditions. Tutors don’t solve homework that has words like “Quiz” or “Exam,” and they often know if a student is sending a photo during a test if they’ve paid for expedited answers, and if the photo is dim, blurry and taken under a desk. “We’ve minimized cheating,” said Issa. “We haven’t eliminated it. That’s kind of unrealistic.”

Wolfram Alpha is similar to PhotoMath, only that it targets older students studying high levels of math and doesn’t support photos. The service also outputs step-by-step solutions to topics as advanced as vector calculus and differential equations, making it a popular tool for college students.
“It’s cheating not doing computer-based math, because we’re cheating students out of real conceptual understanding and an ability to drive much further forward in the math they can do, to cover much more conceptual ground. And in turn, that’s cheating our economies,” said Conrad Wolfram, Wolfram Research’s Director of Strategic Development, in a TEDx Talk. “People talk about the knowledge economy. I think we’re moving forward to what we’re calling the computational knowledge economy.”
Homework Helper
Price: Free

Chinese Internet search company Baidu launched an app called Homework Helper this year with which students can crowdsource help or answers to homework. Users post a picture or type their homework questions onto online forums, and those who answer the questions can win e-coins that can be used to buy electronics like iPhones and laptops.
The app has logged 5 million downloads, much to the dismay of many some parents who argue that the students spend less time thinking about challenging problems. A Homework Helper staffer admitted to Quartz, “I think this is a kind of cheating.”
Slader
Price: Free, but some homework services require payment

Slader is a crowdsourcing app for high school and college students to post and answer questions in math and science. While students can post original homework for help, many questions in popular textbooks have already been answered on the app, according to Fast Company. An Illinois high school said earlier this year that it suspected students were using the service to cheat on their math homework.
Slader argues that it’s “challenging traditional ideas about math and education,” and said that the ideas behind its app “aren’t a write-off to teachers,” according to its blog. Slader told San Francisco media outlet KQED that it shouldn’t be dismissed as a cheating tool, but rather considered a way for students to access real-time help.
