I fear upper level math. I did just fine in school growing up, but never enjoyed math, at all. When I was considering homeschooling, the thought of teaching my kids upper level math classes was one of the one things that was holding me back, even though I was starting with a kindergartner! Having upper level math help is going to be absolutely essential for us in a few years. My oldest is going into 5th grade this year, so I am still doing alright! There is a FREE website (and they have an app) called Your Math Guru that offers help to people struggling with upper level math.
Your Math Guru is a math forum where you can go to ask for help with difficult math problems in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Trigonometry, Probability, Basic Chemistry & Physics. You can sign up to help people with their problems, or you can go just for assistance.
You begin by registering for an account. Once you have an account, you can request help. You choose which forum to ask your question in, based on what type of math help you are seeking. Other members will answer the question that you posted. Once you get the answer you need, you choose the best answer given. People whose answers are chosen as the best receive points. Members with the highest points (form answering well) will be recognized on the leaderboard. Points lead to prizes, so there is motivation for members giving good answers.
Your Math Guru hosts a Problem of the Day and a Bi-Weekly Olympiad in which they award cash prizes to winners. They have also recently started a scholarship program awarding college scholarship money to students.
Your Math Guru is such a cool site! Although I still have younger learners, I will be needing help with upper level math soon. I know as parents it can really be challenging to help kids with math when you haven’t studied it in so many years. This website is a great solution to help out with all of those difficult problems! It is easy to sign up and use and something you could frequent any time you need it with no cost.
