Dear Amy: I need extra help in school, especially math. Are there any websites that can help? — Elizabeth, Las Vegas, Nev.
Dear Elizabeth: One of my favorite websites for online learning is Khan Academy, khanacademy.org. This site has thousands of videos that explain concepts in math, science, history and more. Mouse over Watch, then choose a subject and get started. The Practice section lets you try out what you’ve learned in a variety of math exercises, with topics ranging in difficulty from simple addition to calculus. If you want to track your progress, you can sign up for a free account with a parent’s permission. This is definitely one site you’ll want to keep using through high school and beyond.
Another great place to get math help is Ask Dr. Math, mathforum.org/dr.
math. You can search the archive for questions answered by Dr. Math, or browse by school level and topic. If you can’t find the answer to your question, you can always write to Dr. Math.
