## Check My Steps

Quickly and easily check your algebra steps using this simple GeoGebra utility.

Enter each step in the math box below, and press the

ADD STEP (+)button. After each step, or at the end, tapCheck My StepsYou may also tapShow Editorand enter your steps directly into the Editor. (If you need to make corrections to your steps, the Editor is the place to do that - then justCheck Your Stepsagain!)

Hint: When entering mathematical expressions in the math box, use the space key to step out of fractions, powers, etc. More...

Type simple mathematical expressions and equations as you would normally enter these: for example, "x^2[space]-4x+3", and "2/3[space]". For more interesting elements, use Latex notation (prefix commands such as "sqrt" and "nthroot3" with a backslash (\)): for example: "\sqrt(2)[space][space]".

Note: To check indefinite integrals (such as \int(x)) do not include the constant term in your answer.Some to try...

This utility uses MathQuill for live entry of mathematical terms, and MathJax to present the mathematics beautifully. A latex2math.js function converts the latex form produced by MathQuill into a text form which can be read by GeoGebra.
