Online Resources

In addition to math books, students also have access to practice tests and exercises through Learning Express Library (provided by MOREnet). These practice tests and exercises may be accessed from any computer on campus. Go to MOREnet’s Online Resources, click on Learning Express Library and then click on Math Skills Improvement.

A simple Google search will uncover thousands of sites offering math tutorials. Many of these sites are fee-based or will inundate you with advertisements. However, several are free and very useful. Here are a few good sites:

Wolfram MathWorld is a free math resource site developed by Eric W. Weisstein and maintained by Wolfram Research. Topics covered include Algebra, Applied Mathematics, Geometry, and Probability and Statistics.

West Texas A&M University Virtual Math Lab offers free Algebra tutorials to anyone who needs math help.

SOS MATHematics is free math review site developed and maintained by three math experts (each has a Ph.D. in Mathematics). Topics include (but are not limited to) Algebra, Fractions, and Mathematical Tables. SOS MATHematics offers online tutorials, quizzes, and a message board (where you can get your math questions answered).
