Website review: Math made easy!

November 10, 2018


Exams are just around the corner and most of you may be fretting and then cramming your books and lectures to learn and practice as much as possible. While every subject is tough in its own way and needs attention, maths takes the lead and this is where Mathway — a site that provides solutions to math problems comes in for your rescue.

Mathway is an app as well as a website that gives solutions to all your math-related problems instantly. How? Well, once open, the main page is where you can type your problem and get the answer right away. However, a word of caution is that you must not use the site/app for cheating; it is actually created to assist you and students who find difficulty in complex as well as basic maths topics.

The site is user-friendly and the interface very neat. You will see a calculator (in a virtual keyboard) with symbols and tools for the type of problem you are looking solution for.

You can choose the topic such as basic maths, algebra, calculus, trigonometry, chemistry, statistics, graphing etc., from the drop down list at the left side on the main page or start right away by typing in the problem then pressing the forward arrow button to get the solution. However, if you want to see the steps that go in solving that maths problem, then you must subscribe for it.

One of the supportive features of Mathway include guided practice across grade levels such as custom worksheets to practice before a test, quiz or simply to test your skills, for which again you get after subscribing for it.

The site is focussed on kids of age 10 and over but you can still find solutions and worksheets to basic maths problems here. If used properly, the site can prove to be very assisting to students struggling in maths so it is better to use the resource carefully.
