As finals week begins in Texas schools, students and parents are barreling down, especially in math. Help can be as close as your cellphone.
Math is the tough subject for many students, including 10-year-old Damian Rivera. Getting help can also be tough.
As they say, now there's an app for that.
As we watch, step by step, text by text, the virtual tutor walks Damian through a word problem.
Math Crunch and other math apps work well beyond grade school up to high school and college level classes. That can be helpful when mom or dad is rusty or never took classes such as Algebra II or Calculus.

There are other math apps available, and mom Lina Rivera has tried some of them but prefers Math Crunch for her fifth-grader because it provides a live virtual tutor who won't just spit out the answer.
