5 of Our Favorite Math Apps

Sep 26, 2020

Have you ever skimmed through the education apps in the app store? So many! We’ve saved you some effort though… here are a few of our favorite math apps that are worth a look! 


  • Photomath: Just upload a photo of a math equation and see it solved step-by-step a moment later - wow! A great tool for particularly challenging math problems - or if you just want to figure out where your careless mistake is. 

In-app screenshots from Photomath as shown in the app store.


  • GeometryPad: Reinforce high school geometry concepts and work through extra practice problems, too.
  • BuzzMath: loads of practice problems aligned to common core standards used by public schools in NW DC.

In-app screenshots from Desmos as shown in the app store.


  • BrainScape Flashcards: Before your test, customize your own flashcard set to memorize formulas using spaced repetition. 
  • Desmos: Most NW DC high school math curricula require graphing calculators. Desmos does not totally replace a TI-calculator, but it does provide many of the same graphing functions so you can use your phone or tablet instead. 


​​So what is your favorite math app? How do you use it and why do you like it?


We are here to teach math in a way that makes sense to you - - and we help with homework! No matter what your math class looks like this year, let’s #mathcollab so you can ace it! (202) 888-6882
