# Searching For A Helpful Math Homework Checker

If you do not want to pay for a tutor, than a free math homework checker may be a useful tool to have in your arsenal. This is especially true if you are struggling with any particular concept. Fortunately, there are several different ways that you can find a checker for your math homework. Before we get into those, here is what you need to gather before the checker can benefit you.

### What to Gather

It is always helpful to have the problem that you are trying to solve sitting in front of you. However, not all problems are able to be typed in to get an answer. First, you need to extract the information from the problem. This is especially true if you are working with a word problem or an equation that needs broken down.

### Where to Find a Helpful Math Homework Checker

Once you have the important information extracted from the problem, you can choose to get help from one of these sources.

### Online Calculator

There are math calculators for almost any area of math, from basic algebra to calculus. This is good news if you want to double check that you have solved your problems correctly. Go to your favorite search engine and type in the kind of problem you are solving (inequality, quadratic formula, etc.) and type “calculator” at the end. This should direct you to a site with a calculator to check your problems.

### Smartphone Apps

Many high school and college students should know that their smartphone probably has an app that can be downloaded. In most cases, you can download a different app depending on the math class that you are taking. This will have several different calculators that you may find useful throughout your course. Simply choose the type of problem that you are solving, input the information, and check your answers.

### Your Favorite Search Engine

The final place that you can check for math homework answers is your favorite search engine. You may be surprised to find that other people have struggled with the same, if not similar problems. If you do have to use similar problems, simply consider the way that the answer was reached. This can provide a guideline as to whether or not you took the proper steps to solve the problem. It does not necessarily check the answer, but it does let you know if you are on the right track.
