Smarter Mom: Homework Help

Posted by   + Show Post



We're deep enough into the school year that someone in your house has probably faced a big assignment or two. Nothing makes you realize how much you didn't retain from your own school days as helping your kids with their homework!

Remember, my fellow parents, we have a weapon against the homework blues at our disposal that our parents never did: the Internet! Not only can you Google just about anything and find what you need, there are some sites specifically to help parents and their little students figure out that pressing homework question.

Everyday Math for Parents is a valuable resource for understanding the popular math curriculum, which can be baffling to parents since it presents concepts in a different way than we learned them.

Got a paper due? The Online Writing Lab at Purdue University is an invaluable reference tool for formatting everything from that first research paper to a master's thesis.

For general information, Discovery Education has help for just about everything, including social studies and science. I'll be bookmarking this one!

Do you have a great homework help website?

We haven't had any issues yet where we need the internet to help. Our biggest issue is dd taking forever so I started setting a timer for her math sheet & spelling sheet.

She is only in kindergarten, so I can still help her...for now lol! My husband is very intelligent. I am confidant that he will have no problem helping our kids with their homework as they get older.

I used that online writing lab all the time when I was in school... Good to know it's still around!

I don't have anybody doing homework yet...

I sometimes refer DD to PurpleMath.com if we can't figure something out on our own.
