Algebra Help dot Com

April 5, 2009

I am always looking for sites where students can help themselves. In this modern age, we need students to realize the internet is a source for information and not just video games and music. I brought my students to the computer lab to search for sites that would help them on the Algebra problems I had assigned. They came across AlgebraHelp.com, a site with a bunch of helpful resources. Our favorite item was the equation calculator. With the equation calculator a student can type in an equation with a variable and receive step-by-step instructions on how to solve the problem. Since I require my students to show their work, this is a great resource for them to check their work at home.
