My algebra solver for back to school
My posts for August have be mediocre and I apologize. I’ve been working on other people’s website and have neglected my own. I hope to remedy this in September. I have a backlog of ideas to write, but just haven’t found the time to hammer them out. With fall quickly approaching I’ve been reminiscing on my days in school. When I was younger, going to school meant classes started around September 1st. I know today’s youth go earlier and get out later. With September just few hours away, I’d like to show you a site I have found very interesting.
I wonder how many teachers know this site exist when they assign homework for their students.
I know if you try this site, the feature most kids want is ‘show steps’ which will take them to a website that will be hawking a program that will show you the work step by step.
The main point to get from this site is what use to cost lots of money for a fancy calculator that solves equations (HP 22s) or the (HP 48 series), you can now do for free with a website. I don’t even think you can buy those calculators anymore. It seems like the spreadsheet has killed the calculator star.
Hmm, with that in mind, you could also do your algebra problem solving with an Excel spreadsheet, but what is the fun in that?
There is still a lot to be said about solving math problems with in your head. You’ll never know when you’ll be out in the middle of nowhere and need to solve the quadratic equation to get back home.
