An Identities Tool

This web tool can help you solve some identities. If you're having trouble with any of your homework try typing one side of the identity you're working on into this tool. It's really kind of neat! It "talks" to you. Slowing explaining and illustrating each step of how it is thinking about the problem.

There are a few caveats you should know before you use it though:

  • It only has 25 identities in its database; there exist considerably more. Especially when you throw in all the corrolories we can derive.
  • It will only accept monomials as denominators in rational expressions.
  • Human beings are infinitely creative and prone to sparks of insight; gifts that computers will never have.
You can also find more help here.

Have Fun!

The web tool was simply amazing! And it seems that the computer really does the thinking because it will say "This isn't part of the answer...just my own internal thinking...." or "Just ignore that..." I think I'll love this unit as much as I love solving puzzles. (^_^)
