Stories of students submitting AI-generated essays are pretty funny, but chatbots really do have the potential improve your grades. 👇

Do you love STEM subjects?

ChatGPT can show you how to solve basic and complex math problems.

### Math problem example:

Let's ask ChatGPT to answer how many stickers Bob would have in 3 days if he started with 0 stickers and gets one new sticker every day.

The answer may be simple for you if you've studied at least 2nd grade math. However, seeing the equation to solve the problem can introduce you to writing more complex equations that you'll learn in advanced math classes later.

## Learn with visuals

When you learn how to solve a math problem in school, the instructor may not have the time to show you more than one way to solve the equation.

Fortunately, ChatGPT can assist you with self-directed learning.

### Do you have difficulty learning mathematical equations?

Let's ask the chatbot to solve the same question about Bob's stickers, but with a visual representation of the answer.

Here the AI chatbot has used a number line with explanations to demonstrate the answer.

Keep in mind: Simply memorizing shortcut equations in ChatGPT could affect your grades, because the teacher may want to see every step to solve an equation on a test.

Be sure to clarify your instructor's expectations before using ChatGPT to study. 🧡

Are you not feeling challenged at school?

• Recently switched schools and already learned a topic.

• Will be missing some classes due to vacation or extracurriculars.

To get ahead of the class, look at the syllabus to identify the next lesson you're curious about.

### Example:

Let's say velocity is the next lesson in your physics class. You can ask ChatGPT prompting questions such as:

• When is it important to calculate velocity?

• How do you explain velocity in simple terms?

• In what careers will I need to understand velocity?

### The Ugly

ChatGPT's output can produce many errors. Ultimately, you'll need to edit, revise, and make unique all generated text from an AI bot, including:

• Unverified facts 🤔

• Formatting errors 🤔

• Logical fallacies 🤔

• Incomplete thoughts 🤔

#### Quiz

## Grasp complex passages

Did you know only a third of 10-year-olds globally are estimated to be able to read and understand a simple written story?

Shakespeare plays, historical manuscripts, long chapters of textbooks...the volume of reading expected of a student can be overwhelming.

ChatGPT can save the day with its ability to explain the meaning of passages from textbooks, fiction, academic papers, and more.

Use ChatGPT to identify:

• Major themes

• Historical context

• Character or political motivations

• Story timelines
