Free Online Math Help
Math isn’t my jam. I’m so not qualified to teach my kids math, so I don’t, I outsource. No matter how great their math curriculum is, they still come to me for help on occasion. Ten years ago that was a problem and I usually responded with “Uh, let me call someone for help” but that isn’t the case anymore! The internet is a wonderful thing, especially when it comes to finding free online math help!

Here are some of the websites and resources we use when we get stuck on a math problem:
Wolfram Alpha – There is nothing this website won’t do. Well, I’m sure there is something but it’s not math. Simply plug in the math problem and the answer with step-by-step directions pops up. Wolfram Alpha allows you to ask a certain number of questions a month (not just math questions!) but student and educator paid plans start at under $5/month.
Mathway is a really fantastic tool for students who need some math help. Enter the problem and watch as the solution appears before your eyes, with instructions. Very, very helpful for parents like me! Mathway covers everything your student will need!
Khan Academy is great for students who learn by seeing. Khan Academy is a series of videos on pretty much every topic ever, you’ll see the presenter solving and explaining math problems like they were in the room with you.
S.O.S. Math is like having a math text in your computer! Pick a math subject and topic and see easy-to-understand explanations.
School Yourself is a service of a group of Harvard professors who decided to bring math to everyone through free lessons and videos.
Tutor Chat Live is a free and donation-based online tutoring service for any student who needs help.
I know math can be scary but with today’s resources there’s no need to worry! Have you tried these websites? Do you have another to suggest? Leave a comment below or join in the conversation on our Facebook Page and Facebook Group.
