Google has been able to help you with your homework for a while now, while Lens offers a step-by-step math solver. Google search now improves in trigonometry, calculus, geometry and physics.
Google says search now provides more help on “topics like trigonometry and calculus.” A step-by-step explanation and solution will appear after you enter an equation or integral into the search bar, or take a photo of the problem using Lens.
You can also type “math solver” to try the experience on desktop and soon on mobile.
Meanwhile, for geometry, Google Lens can now “interpret both the visual and textual components” of triangle problems. Taking a photo is a more natural alternative to creating a “written query describing your vision problem.”
Google is also leveraging Large Language Models (LLM) to help search better answer high school physics word problems. Last March, Google integrated Pathways Language Model (PaLM) into Bard to improve math and logic capabilities. This made it possible to answer word and math problems in multiple steps.
Today’s feature will help users “identify known and unknown values,” as well as “understand which formulas to use and when” so they can better resolve these issues in the future.
