Microsoft has launched its Math Solver application on the Google Play Store for Android devices. As you may have gathered by the name, the app can be used to help users solve math problems.

This core experience extends across math problems at elementary, middle, and high school levels. Microsoft has leveraged its artificial intelligence technology to power Math Solver.

Solving a problem requires minimum user input. Users simply write the problem into the app or take a photo with the device camera. Math Solver automatically recognizing the problem and offers the answer.

More importantly, the app is a true education tool because it breaks down the problem. The app provides a step-by-step explanation on how to solve the problem, complete with interactive graphs, show similar problems, and even online video lectures.
