Websites we love: Math help!


Just saying the word makes some students shudder.

But, you have to take it to graduate. And, yes, believe it or not, you might just use those equations, or at least the math processes, in real life.

So, if you are sitting at your kitchen table until the wee hours of the morning scratching out problems over and over again, and find you just can’t figure it out, you may want to check out some of these free math help sites online. Each is designed for advanced high school math courses and beyond, so don’t worry about tripping over the little kid stuff. – Designed and maintained by a professional mathematician, the site offers example problems and a very long list of formulas and how to use them. You can also email the mathematician if you have questions. He includes a link to online calculators and practice tests so you can master your new found skills. – If you are a visual learner, this site is for you. This site, also free, was designed by mathematicians who have created videos of teachers demonstrating how to work through advanced math problems. The videos take you step by step through each math equation. And, if you don’t understand the way one teacher explains it, there are videos of the same problem, taught by different teachers. You do have to sign up for the site, but joining is free. – Of the three this site is the least easy to navigate. The page is much more jumbled and not as professional looking as the first two. However, you can click on the topic and the page gives a very boiled down, simple explanation of how to work the problem. You just have to ignore the advertisements that frame the page.
