The app is actually designed to answer any kind of school question — science, history, etc. For other kinds of questions, Socratic kind of does a bit of Googling, and in my experience can typically find similar word problems on the wide internet, or from its own database of answers.
On about half the middle school science problems I tried, the app was able to identify the topic at question and show me additional resources about the concepts involved, but for others it was no more powerful than a simple web search.
This learning app, powered by Google AI, helps you understand your school work at a high school and university level.
Socratic supports most high school subjects, with more coming soon!
I also tried it on a weird fraction from an AP algebra exam, which it kind of failed at, but then I swiped over and it was showing me this graph, which included the correct answer: I love this app, not just because it would've helped 8th grade Paul out of a jam, but because it's such a computery use of computers.
