This packet lists my favorite resources, then describes how they are useful and when/how to use them!
There are a ton of online resources to help you learn math more easily and this packet will help introduce them to you!
Wolfram|Alpha is an excellent online tool. It is essentially a computational database, meaning it has tons of data ranging from math to science to art and beyond! Simply input problems using the correct syntax and it will compute everything for you.
What it is great for:
How to use it:
Essentially, Wolfram is capable of taking any type of input, whether it be the written or numerical form (e.g. one + one or 1+1. etc...). Type in any equation and Wolfram will try and yield the result (e.g. x + 12 = 33, x = 21).
A video published by the creator of Wolfram|Alpha, giving an overview of the Wolfram Computational Database and the basic capabilities, has been posted below if you wish to view it!

Many days I am just too lazy to read my math textbook...They are also often written in a professional manner, which can become dull quickly. I for one enjoy getting some popcorn and watching someone else do the math while I listen! I have taken my fair share of math classes and so I have some favorite sites that I would like to share (let me know if you know of something that helps YOU more, so I can post it on here for people who may think like you).

If none of the above resources are able to help you out, then simply search on Google! However, be careful! Not everything on the internet is true or credible. Usually just using your common sense will help you avoid bad sites. Typically, if they want money, then it is fake (always triple check before giving out sensitive information or money/credit card numbers). Most everything I have posted does not require any "sign-up", money or downloading.Furthermore, if you are browsing math forums with user-generated content (even Yahoo! Answers), don't automatically accept what they say as truth, try and verify everything yourself if possible. Well, best of luck!!!
