Finding Self-help With Middle School Math on the Internet

         Many middle schoolers, and their parents, are faced with the problem of how to find answers to their math questions once at home and working on their homework. The internet has solved that problem by providing hundreds of thousands of video lessons dealing with every type of math problem.  I have shown the students how to help themselves by using Google to type in their questions and to find answers to those questions. Rather than giving you many sites to explore, we have found that it is faster and easier to 'google' your subject and add the words, 'video lesson'.  For example, while trying to find out how to multiply fractions, we typed the following into the Google search box: 'multiplying fractions video lesson'.  One of the first sites is usually Khan Academy, or some other very good education site, however, you may choose any of the hundreds of thousands that pop up.  It is much easier to find answers this way and you are provided with a teacher explaining it to you on video.  They will offer samples for you to try and then will show you how to do it and check your work.  Have fun exploring these sites and practicing self help while doing your homework and being a problem solver.
