What's it about?
It's late on a Sunday night, your kid has math or science homework due the next day, the library is closed, and the problem in the textbook makes no sense to you -- to say nothing of making sense to your kid. HOTMATH.COM is the answer to your prayers. It's a subscription service with two levels of membership. Unlimited access for a year is under $50. The site also offers a two-month subscription. Hotmath provides much more than \"just the answer\" found in the back of a textbook. You'll find complete hints and solutions to the odd-numbered problems from more than 150 textbooks -- mostly math -- from middle school to college level. Even if you don't want to subscribe, there's still a lot offered for free on Hotmath.
Is it any good?
The review sections are easy to use and free to everyone (as are the Flash movies about how to perform various functions on Texas Instruments graphing calculators). It all adds up to student success.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the explanations behind the answers. Also, how stumped were you before you looked for help? Could you do a similar problem on a test, or should you go back and review the steps that led to the answer again?
