How did you find out about MathCrunch?
I found MathCrunch because I need to retake the alg2/trig regents and I forgot a lot of the material and I needed help with a lot of questions.
Describe your experience with MathCrunch. Was the app easy to use? What was your tutor like? How did you work through the problem? How long did the whole thing take? Care to share an image of the problem(s) you worked on?

What can MathCrunch do better?
I don’t think MathCrunch needs to improve anything at all! They are good the way they are.
What will be the future of education and technology?
