# The Power of Calculator Software

### Did you ever wish you had the power to:

Finish your homework quickly? |
Check your own answers? |
Understand and correct your own mistakes? |

### Zoom calculator software can give you that power!

*Here’s how to use Zoom Apps to make math homework fast and easy:*

**Step 1 – Do a math problem on your own first.**

**Step 2 – Use Zoom Math to check your answer.**

Zoom Math apps make it faster and easier to use your graphing calculator. Just type a problem the way it looks in your textbook and then press ENTER.

- There are no complicated menus or weird key combinations to learn.
- Problems look the same on your calculator screen as they do in your textbook.
- Zoom Math quickly calculates answers and displays them in
**bold**.

If you get the answer right, skip Step 3 and go on to the next problem.

If you get the answer wrong, continue on to Step 3.

**Step 3 – Use Zoom Math to figure out what you did wrong.**

Type the problem again in Zoom Math. This time, instead of pressing ENTER to see the answer, press TRACE. This will show you the first step in solving the problem. Continue through the problem pressing TRACE for each step until you see where you went wrong.

With the help of Zoom Math, you figured out where you went wrong. No one else even knew you needed help. How smart is that? ;-)
