Teacher Review For MyScript Calculator

Why use a program that needs keyboards for math symbols? Just write them!

How I Use It
You can write a function/equation that displays on the board or at a desk. Occasionally, you may find that MyScript Calculator will interpret handwriting incorrectly, but this improves with practice.
My Take
I like this app as it takes guess work out of equations/numbers on paper. Screen caps allow students to submit answers to CMS'. Students like the magic of handwriting transforming to print before their eyes. Very happy that e auto-calculate function can be turned off so students still have to solve the problem before checking their work.
