Puzzle of the Day: Hexa-Trex


Bogusia Gierus offers a daily Hexa-Trex math puzzle targeted for children ages 8 and up. Using hexagonal tiles, players create math equalities, and compete with one another to find the longest and the most equalities.

B.J. Pinchbeck's Homework Helper


In 1996, when he was age 10, B.J. began compiling (with his father's help) links to educational websites. The site grew to include hundreds of sites that help students with their homework.

Recently re-launched, the site's math section is organized under these topics:

  • General Math
  • Algebra
  • Calculus
  • Elementary Level Math
  • Geometry
  • Trigonometry
  • Math Tables, Definitions and Other Cool Stuff
