Many nights students come home to the familiar question, "Do you have any homework?" We've all been there, either hearing it or saying it. Then the dreaded feeling of, I have to help them with their homework, comes next.
Homework is not always easy. There are terms that are different than when we went to school. There are new ways to work out math problems that we aren't familiar with, so it makes us uncomfortable. The good news is, parents are not alone. Teachers have often felt the same way when a new way of doing something is thrown our direction. The good news is, we have the Internet to help us.
When I was first introduced to some of the new math styles, I didn't understand the illustrations in the book, but I found that videos helped me. Fast forward a few years and you will see there is a big market to students and parents that need help at home, using videos.
Here are some great places to look:
I hope these sites can provide some relief and help at home!
