School is back in session and with that comes the dreaded “I need help with my homework”. I know my husband and I did pretty well through the early grades, but when algebra loomed it’s ugly head I panicked. Wish I would have known about these great online homework resources from the library. These are just a few from a long list of eResources for kids. Great for students from kindergarten to graduate school and beyond, check these out 24/7.
One of my new favorites is:
AccessScience provides students with an up-to-date, easy-to-use gateway to scientific knowledge, from basic introductory material to extended article entries and live journal citations in key scientific areas including biology, Earth and environmental sciences, chemistry, physics, and beyond. Based on the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, AccessScience stays current on the most significant scientific findings and breakthroughs with updates from the annual McGraw-Hill Yearbook of Science & Technology.
You can find the link in the A-Z list and on the Science and Technology category page.
I’m always interested in finding out what the latest science news is so I check this out periodically also. Our next cool resource is:
BrainFuse Homework HelpNow
Brainfuse Homework HelpNow provides online homework help through live, one-to-one tutoring for students in grades K-12 and college. Brainfuse provides help with subjects like math and science, an interactive writing lab and ACT and SAT test preparation. Live tutors are available 7 days a week from 3 p.m. until 12 midnight. Access is also available in Spanish.
I love the idea that the live tutoring goes until midnight, when my son was in 8th grade he was a bit of a procrastinator and this would have been very helpful.
I love history and travel so I check this one out when I am planning a trip…
