**Summary : ** A great app for Math teachers!

MyScript Calculator provides users with a work area to write a mathematical equation or problem, which is then automatically solved by the app. If users write an incorrect equation or problem, MyScript Calculator prompts them to add the missing information.

**Please note: **A “?” must be entered for a lettered variable when solving equations. Additionally, MyScript Calculator cannot solve equations with two or more variables.

### Instructional Ideas

- Teachers can use MyScript Calculator to model the mathematical procedures used to solve a problem or equation.
- Students can use MyScript Calculator to check both their answer and the procedure(s) used to solve the problem or equation.
- Teachers can have students compose critiques about the benefits and challenges experienced when using MyScript Calculator to solve math problems, thereby enabling students to engage higher-order thinking skills in the composition of the analysis.
- After reading a word problem, students can use MyScript Calculator to convert the word problem into its numerical form.
