One interesting section is their Problems of the Week (PoWs), which are designed to provide creative, non-routine challenges for students in grades three through twelve. Problem-solving and mathematical communication are key elements of every problem. You can also browse this site and look at some of the questions Dr. Math has answered. Then come up with a math question of your own and submit it.

Thanks to Houghton Mifflin, you can join forces with classmates, go to this site, and solve one of these mind bogglers. Each Wednesday evening they post a new Brain Teaser for each grade level range: 3-4, 5-6, & 7-8. They post solutions one week later.

Formerly hosted by DiscoverySchool.com, this site is now on its own, and it still offers step-by-step instructions on how to do addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, scientific notation, ratios, and proportions, as well as geometry, pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, data analysis, and problem solving. Great for students with tough homework assignments.
