Use Internet websites for help with math assignments When it comes to building your middle-schooler’s math skills, there are plenty of free, educational websites that can help. Ask your child’s math teacher for suggestions. But in the meantime, have your child try these:

  • AAA Math www.aaamath.com. Easy to use, this site is full of solid information. Pages are divided by subject and grade level.

  • Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/drmath.middle.html. When Mom and Dad don’t know the answer, ask Dr. Math! Post a question or browse the archives. Chances are, someone’s asked your question before. The middle school section offers helpful reviews, too.

  • CoolMath Algebra http://www.coolmath.com/algebra/. “Bored with Algebra? Confused by Algebra? Hate Algebra? Yeah, we can fix that.” Or so this site promises—and delivers.
    With splashy graphics and easy-to-use menus, CoolMath is great for kids and parents. Extra helpful is the section called “How to Study for a Math Test.”

  • Frank Potter’s Science Gems—Mathematics www.sciencegems.com/math.html. This site is packed with great links to other sites. It covers math skills for all levels from grades four to six to advanced math topics such as trigonometry, calculus and statistics. It even lists a site with math problems that have never been solved.
