This site provides teachers and students with links to sites that will help identify learning styles and teaching styles. It also offers information and links about math anxiety as well and information for mathematics teachers and the methodology they should use in their classroom. With community college adult students in mind, the site offers algebra tutorials, video tutorials, study tips, and forums for discussion on various topics. This site would be helpful to college prep algebra students and their parents.

This site provides basic tutorials in mathematics grade levels 4 through 8. This would be helpful to parents who wish to help their students but find they cannot remember all of the math and need more examples than the textbook offers. All of the explanations are in written format. The topics follow the ninth grade proficiency outcomes.

http://www.aplusmath.com/
This site is useful for students who have continued to struggle with the basic operations in mathematics. It provides online practice with basic skills by providing worksheets, flashcards, games, homework helper, word finds and more. It has been my experience that students on an IEP with have low functioning calculation skills will work on a computer and this site would be particularly helpful in this regard.

Ask Dr. Math is a website that provides a forum for students to ask and receive answers to mathematics questions. It offers explanations of topics ranging from grades 1 to 12 and beyond. Students are search by level and read frequently asked questions with their solutions. However, students must know the language of the mathematics with which they are working in order to find solutions to their questions. If they cannot find solutions, they can email their questions to Dr. Math and ‘he’ will respond to them.

http://www.mathcounts.org/
While Math Counts is a coaching and competition program, this site offers challenging problems, problems of the week, and thought provoking questions that are appropriate to middle school students. This site would be helpful for those middle school students wishing to prepare for college prep work. Mrs. Mertz uses this site for bonus questions and problem of the week bulletin boards

The Discovery site is wonderful for the multitude of lesson reviews it covers. Any topic that middle school students would need is provided with explanations and a homework solver. However, be forewarned the homework solver does not provide all of the solutions and will not be available for testing situations. This site should be used as a study guide not as a “cheat sheet”. The site also offers a section for teachers to derive lesson plans and resources and a section for parents to assist with mathematical acquisition of skills, learn study skills, and offers help in other academic areas.

Excellent site for eighth grade student is pre-algebra. It offers sample problems with a brief explanation of the solution along with practice problems for each topic studied. Those struggling with the proficiency would surely benefit from this site. The only drawback is students must know the mathematical notation used on a keyboard. For example * means multiply. If you are struggling with this, please see me and I will help you.

This is what I believe students struggling with math should promise to themselves in order to be successful. While this does not provide activities or help with homework, I believe students should read and perform by these standards in class every day. If you want to succeed, the rules you should heed.
