4 Great Websites for Homework Help

Oh, if only there was a "Homework Help Fairy" that would visit whenever a child is having problems completing homework. Since no such ethereal assistant exists, here are some resources for minimizing the agony of homework time....for kids AND parents.

If your child attends JCPS, utilize the Gheens Academy website to see exactly what students are being taught and on what they are being tested on any given week of the school year. These maps are very specific and can give parents a starting point for seeing how their children are learning math nowadays (or science or social studies).

Still perplexed? You and your child might find answers to your questions at...
... The Math Forum@Drexel, which has an archive of questions students have posed. Students can also submit their questions to Dr. Math if the archive can’t help address their specific need.

Another site that might prove helpful is Homework Spot. The site is divided up according to grade level (elementary, middle, and high) and has links for every subject.

For older students writing essays and research papers, the website may be the world’s greatest invention. It is an automatic bibliography generator that takes the sting out of rereading the MLA or APA guidebooks.
