Basic Skills Practice A Math offers computation skills games, flash cards, and the "Homework Helper": an interactive calculator with problems formatted as they are on standard worksheets, allowing students to check their own work.
http://www.aplusmath.comFun Brains Math Baseball designed in the "computation exercise should be fun" school, Math Baseball offers computation practice at different levels with a baseball game metaphor. Students must enter the correct answer to advance their runners and score runs. Mistakes hurt as the students' batters strike out. Attractive graphics and a clear interface make this worth putting on your list for computation practice.

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/library/Online TutorialsWeb math (grades 3-12) Classroom Connect partner Discovery.com offers this impressive math site set up to provide computerized step-by-step tutorials on most individual problems in almost any math topic. While not designed as a tutorial on whole topics, the interactive power of its sophisticated math problem-solving program will entrance students. The goal of the creators of Web math is "to give a student immediate help over the Internet with the particular math problem they are on."
http://school.discovery.com/homeworkhelp/webmathMath abundance (grades 9-12) A Think Quest site designed by high school students, this witty site offers tutorials on topics from pre-Algebra through Calculus. This site will help you understand math concepts better. Each topic includes well-written definitions, sample problems, and an interactive quiz. A nice feature is that the site explains the process for answering each missed problem on a quiz.

Math League Help Topics- This is a help resource for grades 4-8.
http://www.mathleague.com/help/help.htm Contests and Public Forums Think Quest (grades 4-12) Since 1996, think Quest has offered its popular contests. Teams of students with adult coaches are challenged to create innovative educational Web sites. The quality is high, the products inspiring, and the thrill of being published on Think Quest has motivated many student teams to excellence. Students will need technical resources to create Web sites to take the Think Quest Internet Challenge (ages 12-19) or the Think Quest Junior Challenge (grades 4-6).
http://www.thinkquest.org Ask Dr. Math (grades 2-12) This is one of the finer ask-an-expert sites available. Working with Ask Dr. Math helps students with the key skill of developing and asking meaningful questions. Students should know how to search the archives of already answered questions. Have teams work together to ask Dr. Math a question!
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/dr.math/dr-math.html Aunty Math (grades K-6) Every other week Aunty Math posts a new math challenge! Students are invited to submit answers and are encouraged to describe their strategy and document their problem-solving process. Comparing the approaches of different posted answers is an excellent opportunity to work on problem-solving skills.

Other Favorite Math Web Sites from our Students Indexes to Biographies- Alphabetical and chronological index to mathematicians.
http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/BiogIndex.html MegaMathematics-Mathematics is a live science with new discoveries being made every day. The frontier of mathematics is an exciting place, where mathematicians experiment and play with creative and imaginative ideas. Many of these ideas are accessible to young children. Others (infinity is a good example) are ideas that have already piqued many children's curiosity, but the profound mathematical importance of these ideas is not widely known or understood.
http://www.cs.uidaho.edu/~casey931/mega-math/menu.html Multiplying Magic Squares- Neat approach to the "subset" in math. Once you catch on to this you will love it.
