Google has given students – and their parents – some helpful tools to make learning at home a little easier. In May, it launched an augmented reality feature in Search that lets you view 3D anatomical models and cell structures. And soon, the tech giant will help you solve simple math problems by using Google Lens to take pictures of them.
The company is using technology from its Socratic mobile learning app, which it acquired last year, to power its upcoming Lens feature. When it arrives, all you need to do is take a snapshot of your research document and then highlight an equation or a specific problem you can̵7;t seem to solve for quick access. Step-by-step instructions and detailed explanations. The idea is to make it easier for you to look up the math concepts that are difficult for you, because you need to be able to understand them in order to apply them. Google doesn’t say when the Lens feature will launch, but Socratic itself is available as a standalone app for iOS and Android.
