This is so awesome advice, and once again, will share with my young teen daughter. Very nicely written too!

Great article -- though I do think there are some limitations to the capabilities of ChatGPT.

If I’m struggling with an advanced math problem in calculus, will it be able to assist me (given that it doesn’t know how to use LaTeX)? ChatGPT may be able to offer general knowledge about the field of calculus -- but I suspect it’s not the best resource for more nuanced problems.

Also, ChatGPT has been shown to make basic mathematical and factual errors when asked about specific topics -- which might be a problem for a student if they wholeheartedly trust ChatGPT when it is providing them incorrect information.

Do you have any advice to combat these two problems?
