Online Resources for Teaching Math


Math can be a dry subject. For those of us who don't necessarily enjoy Math for its own sake, we need all the help we can get in keeping the review from getting tedious. Here are few of the online resources I've used over the years:

Online Games for Review or Fun
  • Fun 4 the Brain. Even our 3 year old enjoys this site. Many different games for addition through division. 
  • Think Fun. This company has produced some of our favorite logic board games but they have a few games available to play online for free.
  • Starfall. Primarily a phonics and reading site (one of our favorite sites ever!) but they also have a few free math games. There are more math resources for subscribers, but I'm not one so I can't testify to their quality.
  • Math Practice. You can choose the operation and the numbers from 0 to 12. It's timed but a child may prefer this to writing out the answers on a time sheet.
Printable Worksheets and Flashcards
Help with Algebra
  • Algebra Worksheet Generator from Math . com with an option to create an answer sheet with it.
  • Mathway Math Problem Solver. Will solve your Algebra equation (also solves many other types of problems up to and including Calculus and Statistics . You might not want to show the kids this site!
Other Resources
  • Free Online Graph / Grid Paper. You never know when you might need some. (For our handwriting challenged children, we have them use graph paper to keep their numbers and columns neat while solving equations.)
  • Don't forget Donna Young. Her site is amazing and it includes many Math resources as well.
  • Homeschool Math has worksheets, lessons, curriculum planners, videos and links to games.
  • Living Math! is a great site with lists for books that teach math concepts naturally, among other things. Lots of inspiration here!
