    High School and College Students Everywhere rejoice! I can remember the days of Algebra and Calculus. In those days if you had a high enough powered calculator you could get the answers to your equations, but that never did any good because of course the teachers would want you to solve out the equations by hand and show your work. PhotoMath is a new app set to release for Android in 2015 that allows you to take a photo of an equation. It will then solve that equation showing the steps involved to solve. There is a concern that this type of tool could be dangerous in the wrong hands. It makes homework too easy, and if you aren't really learning then tests and exams could be super difficult if not impossible when you arrive and teachers confiscate phones. At any rate you will want to use this app for only the most difficult of problems that you become stuck on.

    Wasn't this app taken from an older episode of The Big Bang Theory?
