Do Your Kids Need Help in Math?
My niece is struggling a bit in her sixth grade math. Word story problems are her greatest hurdle right now -- that and her overall dislike of math as a subject of study.
For reasons I am unable to credibly discern, the math teacher has not been helpful with providing extra study work that would help my niece. I've offered to lend a hand, but my niece's response to my offer has been lukewarm at best. Still, her mother has asked me to move forward and do what I can.
My thought has been to research for online assistance in math for my niece. There are many, many resources available for assistance with math via the Internet. Here are three that I will be suggesting to my niece:
- www.ixl.com/math You'll find an incredible amount of specific areas of math that are broken down into the smaller concepts appropriate for the grade level you seek. As a student completes problems in any of these areas, increasingly more difficult problems are given.
- math.about.com/cs/wordproblems/a/wp6.htm Here you'll find links for downloadable word story problems in math.
- www.tutor.com/subjects/math Tutors from around the globe are onsite 24/7 to help with math homework or math questions. Each tutor's specialty and profile is available to read before choosing the best fit for your situation. One free trial is offered, then assistance from a tutor requires payment.
I hope one of these sites offers what you or your students needs to help them become more proficient in math.
