I stumbled upon a great MATH HELP (IXL.COM) for kids and teens from Pre-K to 12th grade, which includes Algebra and Geometry. My son really needs help in MATH. Most kids don’t like math and some are afraid of it. This online practice will help your KIDS AND TEENS LOVE MATH. You can go to www.ixl.com and your child can try it out up to 20 free math problems a day. The thing I love about it is that it checks each answer as you go along and if you’re right it says ” correct” but if you get the problem wrong it explains (in words) how to solve the math problem in a very understandable way. I THINK IT IS GREAT, ESPECIALLY GEOMETRY FOR MY SON. If you like the program it has a question list of most asked questions by parents. The charge to sign up for the membership is $9.95 a month and it says you can cancel anytime. If you add another child it is $2.00 a month more . GO AHEAD AND HAVE YOUR CHILD TRY THE PROBLEMS FOR FREE AND SEE HOW YOUR CHILD LIKES IT. IT IS ONLINE AND THE STUDENT CAN PRACTICE THESE MATH PROBLEMS ANYTIME. I THINK IT WILL MAKE MATH FUN AND YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN A LOT. IT IS GOOD PRACTICE AND IT EXPLAINS HOW TO DO THE PROBLEM IF YOU GET IT WRONG. PARENTS CAN TRY IT TO SEE WHAT THEY WOULD ACTUALLY BE BUYING. IXL.com will be getting a language program next year but for now this is just MATH .
