Math Help

Math Abundance (grades 9 -12): www.ping.be/~ping1339/hp.htm This witty site offers tutorials on topics from pre-Algebra through Calculus. The designers sum up their site this way: "As we worked our way through various math classes throughout the years, we often became confused or lost.  At first we decided it might have been all the sleeping and talking we did during class, but we knew it couldn't be that simple... So here's a site for people like us... easy ways to learn concepts. 

MathFlash (grades 2 - 8): www.edu4kids.com/math  Here is a good example of computers doing what computers do best.  Straight foward computation flash cards are generated by this site.

DAU Math Refresher (grades 3 - 12): www.cne.gmu.edu/modules/dau/math/index.html Designed as a tool to review basic arithmetic through calculus, this site is charmingly designed with the organizational metaphor of a subway systemthat students travel through as they complete each topic.  The students will have to have pencil and paper ready to work out the problems.

Mission: Critical (grades 7 - 12): www.sjsu.edu/depts/itl/  This project of The Institute of Teaching and Learning offers a large set of tutorials on logic and thinkning skills. 

Web Math (grades 3 - 12): www.webmath.com/index.html This impressive math site is set up to provide computerized step-by-step tutorials on most individual problems in almost any math topic.

The ArithmAttack: www.dep.anl.gov/aatack.htm  How many computer-generated arithmetic problems can you answer in 6o seconds?" That's the challenge posed to visitors at this visually simple, math-driven website sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory.  Kids (and parents!) can choose addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division problems or ask the computer to offer a random selection.  More effective and much more fun than flash cards. EW's rating: B+

Coolmath.com:  www.coolmath.com This site is great for many things math. So check it out.
