Ratings and Reviews
No matter how much we use it, this app still feels like magic. Getting the answer to “Who built the Sphinx?” or “How does photosynthesis work?” is as easy as snapping a photo of the question, then watching Socratic’s mighty AI dig up helpful explanations and videos from a bunch of online sources. It’s quick, free, and awesome.
Freaking. Life. Saver.
Perfect for adaptive quizzing!! Saving yourself time looking up answers to some random question from the caption of a picture in a random textbook isn’t cheating. :)
Busy work, no more! Used it for the first time tonight - half asleep and I remembered I had an assignment due in a couple hours. The assignment was an adaptive quiz where you had to answer questions until you “leveled up”. I didn’t have to spend hours answering the same kinds of questions over and over and wasting time looking up answers in the book so it didn’t hurt my percentage. I scan the question, and while it is searching (only a few seconds), I would answer the question on my own. Submit if I guessed it right, and change it if I guessed wrong. Saves so much time because once you answer, the rationale is right there. Can’t believe I’m only not discovering this app... but I’m beyond thankful nonetheless.
*EDIT: Obviously use the app wisely. Don’t substitute it for knowledge, and always verify your answers. The answers are pulled from Quizlet and like sources, that are made by students just like us. But if I know some tiny tidbit isn’t going to be on my professor’s exam, it can be a little hard to justify reading six paragraphs on the topic to try to find my answer. And here comes in - Socratic!
Confusing and unable to answer questions
I downloaded this app to help me understand my math homework more when trying to makeup work that I missed. It works well with taking pictures and explaining, but it only explains simple questions or questions other people have asked. It works well for problems in like 1st-5th grade, but when you start to do middle school math with it, it doesn’t have the question you asked or it explains it in a confusing way. I had a question of “Triangle A has side lengths 2, 3, and 4. Triangle B has side lengths of 4, 5, and 6. Is Triangle A similar to Triangle B?” Similar meaning same angle measures and possibly different side lengths. It gave me an answer but not for my questions. Google Socratic gave me answers that had to do with right angles, side lengths, and the differences between types of triangles but not what I was looking for. I gave this app 4 stars because it’s a good app for younger kids learning math but not for middle and high school math. The app does not seem to understand the question or gives you the answer to a “similar” question when you ask for a question more than just a simple “_x_=_”. I hope Google can fix this because Socratic is a very easy and understandable app to use, it just doesn’t meet the requirements for explaining math to older students.
