8 Free Math Learning Sites: Upper Elementary through High School

8 free math learning sites homeschool

Here’s a compilation of free math learning sites.  Khan Academy is, I believe, the top contender. Everyone knows about it by now, but there are some other really neat sites.  If you’re on a tight budget, or are the creative type that loves to mix and match, you might find some good options here.  I included the link to the Core Standards, to guide you in preparing your own path, if that’s what appeals to you.

1. Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/

Khan Academy has become a major player in the elearning community. With courses that include just about anything imaginable, it’s totally worth taking a look.

2. Math A Tube: http://www.mathatube.com/

The Math A Tube is a website dedicated to helping parents and their kids with math. We have a laser like focus on one subject, mathematics.

3.  Visual Math Learning: http://www.visualmathlearning.com/

This is not necessarily “visual,” it’s more like a power-point type of presentation. Nevertheless, the presentation is clean and uncluttered (ignoring the ads, that is)

4. eMathematics.net: http://www.emathematics.net/

This site looks quite complete. I like that it is interactive. Though more practice is definitely required to master concepts, it offers a good starting point.

5. Sister site in Spanish:  http://www.ematematicas.net/

Sister site to #4 above.  I just love it when I find goodies like this in Spanish. It’s such a treat for us!  Muchísimas gracias ematemáticas.net!

6. Math TV: http://www.mathtv.com/

Clean, uncluttered, very well organized. Put together by a math college professor with the help of his students.  From what I can see, you can view the videos for free. Some of them in Spanish as well. And if you like, you can buy a yearly pass to all textbook content (practice, homework help, quizzes and tests) for only $40. Sounds like a good deal!

7. Math Moves U: http://www.mathmovesu.com/

Supplemental help and practice for upper elementary and up.

8. Fun Mathematics Lessons: http://math.rice.edu/~lanius/Lessons/

Rice University Professor Cynthia Lanius’s Fun Mathematics Lessons compiles several topics in an engaging and interactive way that’s sure to appeal to kids, ages 10 and up.

5. Geogebra: http://www.geogebra.org/

Be prepared to go thorough a bit of a learning curve (I haven’t,  not quite there yet!)  but I suspect the results will be well worth it.  Nothing beats direct crafting and manipulation of graphs and curves.  Geogebra allows you to do just that.  What a cool cyber hands-on supplement for high school math and above.

6. Math Dictionary for Kids: http://www.amathsdictionaryforkids.com/

Fun, fun, fun! Though supplemental, I bet kids of any age can play with this, and come back with math-smarts a notch or two higher.  Did I say “fun” already?  Okay, yes, and also available: Math charts that cover basic concepts in a colorful, lively and appealing way for young children.

7.  Hartcourt Math Dictionary: http://www.hbschool.com/glossary/math2/index_temp.html

Another practical and kid-friendly math dictionary.

8.  Create a Graph: http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/

Have fun creating graphs. Not really a source of lessons, but a handy supplement indeed.

Last, here’s the Math Core Standards in case you want to follow it to create your own syllabus.

Happy math learning!
