This article is written by Fitz.
In this modern age, studying mathematics is a lot easier and comfortable with the help of the internet. Several websites have provided mathematical resources in text, video, and interactive applications so that students are not limited with just reading. Some websites also have downloadable worksheets and online quizzes for assessment purposes.
My criteria on choosing the top math websites are based on the following:
- content quality
Here are some of the math websites which I find are the most helpful in studying math:
The Khan Academy website has very good graphics. It contains articles, online tests, and video lessons. A search tab is provided to find for the subjects, skills, and videos desired. In order to load the images and play the videos properly, a stable internet connection is required.
Lessons are arranged by subject. An interactive quiz is provided for each lesson and serves as a task that needs to be completed. In these tests, you may use hints and a video lesson to help you understand the topic covered by the questions. Once you successfully completed a task, you are automatically directed to the next significant task.
