Top 10 Math Websites (Free!)

Facebooktwitterpinterest

You are probably reading this right now stressed and frustrated because of the 4 letter word “math.” As someone who has tutored and taught Math for over 15 years, I understand!

But there’s good news!

With the right tools, solid practice, and a bit of renewed confidence, your relationship with math will improve! Maybe you’ll even learn to like it! *gasp!* My former math students tell me all the time they grew to like math working with me. So, there is hope! :)

As co-founder of Student-Tutor, I love helping all students master math, even if they never become a customer! To that aim, I worked hard to research the best free math websites available. And my team then developed quizzes with actionable steps to help you build your academic confidence and reach your fullest potential (see below!).

Here at Student-Tutor, we like to call that “Sparking Bright Futures”! We hope we can spark a brighter future for you.

Top 10 Math Websites

Want more free math resources specific to your grade level? Then check out some new articles we just wrote linked out below! Stay tuned… more to come!

Now let’s get to the count down!…

10. Art of Problem Solving

Math Levels: pre-Algbera – Algebra (approximately 3rd – 11th grade)
My Favorite Thing: their videos are organized, clear, helpful, and free!

This math website has lots of stuff including math discussion forums, math competition information, and classes students can enroll into… but we especially like their clear videos!

Video categories include:
– PreAlgebra (basic algebraic properties, decimals, angles, and more!)
– Introduction to Algebra (one-variable, multi-variable, complex numbers and more!)
– Counting & Probability (basic counting techniques, geometric probability, and more!)
– MATHCOUNTS (explaining problems from a state math competition)
 AMC (explaining problems from American Mathematics Competitions qualifying tests)
– More Math Videos (some other fun miscellaneous topics)

There are tons of videos listed very clearly by subject and subtopic. This image above shows the Algebra videos by chapter. If you were to scroll down on the page, you would see all the numerous videos for each listed chapter.

Once watching a video, a nice guy walks us through problems step-by-step with very clear explanations. As a former math teacher, I approve!

9. Education World

Math Levels: K-12th (but seems heavier on K-8th grade)
My Favorite Thing: free downloadable worksheets

Education World presents a variety of math resources that all teachers can use to liven up instruction. “But I’m not a teacher!” you protest. It doesn’t matter! Anyone can take advantage. And parents would be wise to seek out resources that teachers themselves like to pull from.

This site links to www.freeprintableonline.com and has downloadable pdfs of its own on critical thinking, math crossword puzzles, and hands-on math activities like these two shown below.

education world is a top 10 math website

 

8. Cliff’s Notes

Math Levels: 2nd-12th (Basic Math through Calculus)
My Favorite Thing: topic reviews and quizzes to follow for practice

top 10 math website screenshots

When I was in school, Cliff’s Notes were all the rage for students who needed to review a long book before a big test. These little overview books were especially helpful for Shakespeare, if I do say so myself, but now they have Cliff’s Notes for Math!

This top math website covers:

math websites example category listBasic Math
Basic Math & Pre-Algebra
Math Word Problems

Algebra
Algebra I
Algebra II
Linear Algebra

Calculus
Precalculus
Trigonometry
Calculus
Differential Equations

Other
Geometry
Statistics

If you want the full, hands-on version, they are sold in book stores and online, but this website is a nice and free starting point for some solid review.


7. Algebra.Help

Math Levels: 7-11th (all about Algebra)
My Favorite Thing: clear at-a-glance table of contents on front page

As soon as you open this page, you see all the topics you can find lessons, examples, and worksheets about. No need to dig deep into the website to figure out what it actually covers.

math website table of contents

For students just beginning Algebra to students already deeply immersed in it who need a little review on a topic or two, this site shows step-by-step how to attack all the important algebraic concepts.

Here below is an example of their online math “worksheets.” Pick a topic you need more practice with and you can type in your answer to multiple problems, check your answers, and see explanations if you got it wrong. You get immediate feedback on your attempts and lots of practice problems to work toward mastery.

6. Math Pickle

Math Levels: K-12th
My Favorite Thing: videos and activity resources to do with students

Math Pickle is a great top 10 math website for K-12 math topics. It too seems to be designed with the teacher in mind, but do not let that deter you! Take mini-lessons and do them with your kids! Make it a game. Make it a fun project. They will learn without realizing it (which is the best way to learn – naturally!)

This math website has video support, discussion boards, games that are “hard fun,” inspired (and inspiring) people, and more!

Here is a path that I took by clicking on “Addition” under the 1st / 2nd / 3rd grade area, then scrolling down and clicking on “Unfair Thrones,” and then watching the posted video and opening the supporting PowerPoint Presentation.

5. Hooda Math

Math Levels: K-8th
My Favorite Thing: tons of fun online games to practice concepts

Hooda Math is a top 10 math website geared toward helping kids practice and learn through fun computer games. Specific topics the games work with are: addition, subtraction, multiplication, addition, geometry, basic physics, fractions, integers, and algebra.

Kids learn best when having fun! Here is a game I started to play practicing geometric understanding and spacial reasoning.

4. Paul’s Online Math Notes

Math Levels: 9-12th+ (Algebra through Calculus III)
My Favorite Thing: “cheat sheets” – nice review study guide reference sheets!

The intent of this site is “to provide a complete set of free online (and downloadable) notes and/or tutorials for classes that [Paul teaches] at Lamar University.” He has written out notes / tutorials on Algebra, Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, and Differential Equations. The notes are simple and easy-to-follow.

Another great feature is there are practice problems for students to solve. The solutions let you click to reveal each step one at at time! That is great! If a student gets stuck half-way through, he or she can check out the next step without revealing the entire solution.

pauls-notes-screen-shots-problem-worked-out

He has even made nice “cheat sheets” for algebra, trigonometry, and calculus topics. This is one of the best parts of this top 10 math website. It is so helpful for students to have all the facts and formulas from which they can pull right there in front of them. Print out these sheets for reference during homework sessions! Print out these sheets to give to teachers (brownie points!) and they may even let students use during tests (depends on teacher).

3. Arcademics

Math Levels: K-6th grade
My Favorite Thing: super fun “arcade games” practicing math

This top 10 math website was created with idea of “Academics + Arcade = Fun” in mind! Games are free, multi-player, and educational. And they even designed these games while conscious about online safety. “Private” games can be set up with a password, so a student and his/her friends could organize games to play against each other in a private game! “Public” games can be joined by anyone at anytime but there is no contact between the outside players and the student. They also monitor player names and block inappropriate ones.

Let’s take a look at a game that I just played to give one a try! I decided to practice multiplication and loved the look of this cute penguin jumping game.

top 10 math website called arcademics

This math website covers all kinds of elementary math concepts but also includes practice for language arts, geography, spelling, and typing. Pretty cool.


2. Khan Academy

Math Levels: 3rd-12th+ (basic math through Calculus III) plus ACT & SAT Prep!
My Favorite Thing: videos galore, easy-to-navigate

Growing in popularity around the world, the Khan Academy is full of helpful videos explaining all sorts of math topics (they have videos on other school subjects too). When you login (free forever, they say!) you see a home screen and your child can even take a math pre-test to see where he/she is starting.

great math website top 10From there, you can browse their video library. For math, they cover topics starting around 3rd grade and go through tough subjects such as Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics, Test Prep, Differential Equations, and more.

top 10 math website khan academy video listThere are numerous other neat features about this ever-growing and ever-improving top 10 math website (well, more than just math). We highly encourage parents to explore this site and see how they can use it to their advantage.

Here is a snap shot of what the Khan Academy’s videos look like:

top 10 math website khan academy video example

 

1. Patrick JMT

Math Levels: 3rd-12th+ (arithmetic through Calculus)
My Favorite Thing: videos galore, easy-to-navigate

The “JMT” in Patrick JMT stands for “Just Math Tutorials.” Math, math, and more math.  Similar to #2 Khan Academy, this top 10 math website has clear math videos on tons of topics. Scroll down their home page and gape!

top 10 math website called patrick jmt
The reason I decided to rank Patrick JMT higher than the famous Khan Academy is the fact that the background of the videos is more clear and visually appealing (see above image) in my opinion. Khan Academy’s black background is swapped for a whitish yellow paper background and the writing is done by hand with a pen, so it is a bit more clear than the online pen tool of Khan Academy.

  7. Charm - August 8, 2015

    Hi Ms. Laura, I find this website very much helpful to students, specially those who are striving so much in Math. I’m also one of the contributors of a site which we aim to be as popular as yours. We do offer different topics, questions with answers and to understand more, we also incorporated contents of each topic. Hoping you could also look at this site, and have this included in your article, its SelectiveSchoolExam.com. Looking forward to your response.

    CHARMIE

    • Laura Petersen - August 11, 2015

      Hello Charm,

      Thank you for taking the time to write a comment! I do appreciate that!

      I looked at your site but it does not seem to be free. Am I mistaken? It seems like you have to log in and pay for the quality content.

      For this post I really wanted to highlight sites that were free and very high quality information. Please let me know if I am in error and will take another look. :)

      Laura

  8. John Michael - July 30, 2015

    It supportive for me. Since I’m making a site about Math. What’s more, i need my site to wind up well known as networks in your theme :). Much obliged to you!

  9. Jan - July 30, 2015

    Another good maths website is Ultimate Maths
    http://www.ultimatemaths.com

  10. MEPCO - July 17, 2015

    I found the best site to learn basic mathematics thru dynamic worksheets is simplify calculator.com.
    I hope it will be very useful for your kids to practice and learn math easily.

  11. Dr. Carol JVF Burns - July 11, 2015

    Here’s another:
    http://www.onemathematicalcat.org
    It has unlimited, randomly-generated online practice, and unlimited, randomly-generated offline practice via worksheets. It has fully-sequenced courses which steadily build skills, assuring prerequisites are in place. It uses MathJax (the gold standard for math-on-the-web) to get correctly-displayed and dynamic mathematics. Middle-school through high school math. It has a heavy emphasis on the language of mathematics, teaching people to teach *themselves* math while they’re learning the math. The site author has a doctorate in math and about 30 years teaching experience. It’s all free, no sign-ins, no annoying pop-ups and such.

  12. Mike - July 5, 2015

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful article.Indeed its a great compilation of resources. Maths is all about practice, the more you practice the better you become. I would like to add the following site

    http://www.selectiveschoolexam.com

    • Renae Hintze - July 7, 2015

      Very cool! Practice makes perfect but it always helps when you practice the “real deal”, so to speak. 😉 Thank you for sharing your site Mike.

  13. fatima badat - June 6, 2015

    Have you tried http://www.atstudycloud.co.uk ? It is for 5 to 11 years old

    Have used it for my child… Starts from the basic and builds up… really good as it built my child’s confidence

  14. Damon Greenfield - April 22, 2015

    I am starting college in the fall of 2015. I am 42 year old Veteran, and I havent had schooling since 1992, and then in 96 when i took a couple years of college. I am going into the Computer Field, networking, and Cyber security. My math is next to nil. So what website would be good for me to get ready for College Course Math. In college The math I need starts at MATH 155 – Discrete Structures , but to take that I need MATH 105 – College Algebra, and to take that I need MATH 101 – Fundamentals of Mathematics. Which of these websites will get me started, and hopefully ready for College math ?

    • Renae Hintze - April 23, 2015

      Damon,

      I would definitely recommend that you check out The Khan Academy! It’s a free, online math resource, and the reason I’m recommending it to you is because you are taking a variety of math courses that will have different materials in them. Khan Academy has a library of videos that covers K-12 math. These will show you how to work out different problems step by step, which is basically the same as if you had a tutor right there with you. Here is the web address: http://www.khanacademy.org! You can find out a little more about it from this blog post: http://student-tutor.com/blog/free-online-math-tutoring/

      Also, this post lists our top 10 math websites, but we have another article that lists 43! (http://student-tutor.com/blog/43-math-websites/) The descriptions for these are fairly short so I recommend that you make selections based on what sounds helpful to you – for example, if you learn better using flashcards.

      Lastly, we also did this article on 8 Iphone Math Apps. If you have an Iphone, these could help as well: http://student-tutor.com/blog/top-math-iphone-apps/

      You should find what you need from at least one of these resources. :) Once you find the material, repetition is going to be the key. Let us know if you need any more help!

  15. sachin - April 9, 2015

    This site is very helpfull to all students..too many students face mathematics problems.gud job

    • Renae Hintze - April 16, 2015

      Thank you for the comment! If we can help any student to increase their math comprehension, that’s what we’re aiming for.

  16. Studentlance - April 9, 2015

    Math is all about mastering the skills of solving a particular problem by using appropriate techniques. I really found these sites very helpful. A very informative share I must say.

  17. Stan Lisle - March 12, 2015

    I operate a website with about 170 free middle school math lessons for teachers or students. I would appreciate consideration for inclusion on your website.

    http://www.MasterMath.info

    Thanks,

    Stan Lisle

  18. Kate - March 8, 2015

    Great list! I have two teens (8th and 10th) that struggle in math, and I also teach sixth grade to students who truly run the gamet in terms of math proficiency and interest! I had heard and used a few, but many are new to me. I have also found virtualnerd.com to be a valuable resource. I believe it focuses on upper elementary through high school. Similar to Khan academy, but easier to navigate. After each tutorial, it lists for students other related background videos or ones that would extend their learning. Thanks again!

    • Laura Petersen - March 9, 2015

      And thanks to you too, Kate, for sharing virtualnerd and your kind words. I will check that one out! It is funny to me how in a way having so many resources out there actually makes it harder to find the good ones. Often times when I google something it takes a bit of time to sift through junky/spammy sites and reveal the real gems. Glad this list is helpful! :)

  19. Jan - March 6, 2015

    I found a cool site called Ultimate Maths ultimatemaths.com

  20. Subbalakshmi Kumar - March 3, 2015

    Thank you for sharing such Informative content specially for kids. I’d to say that there are few site that my kids eager to use and the questions in return they asked are sometimes i feel they are my teacher lol :) .. below are sites you can add them too.

    1] mathtweets.com

    • Renae Hintze - March 5, 2015

      Thanks for the link Subbalakshmi, we’ll definitely check Mathtweets out. Have your kids tried any of the sites listed on this post?

  21. Subbalakshmi Kumar - March 3, 2015

    Please look at mathtweets.com. We are offering the 40 – week parent-driven Mathtweets program delivers a weekly module that has 1 Tutor sheet with simple explanations and 5 Work sheets. such that you can solve your problem with minimum effort.

  23. Andrea - December 24, 2014

    Another great website I recommend is Beestar. My daughter has been using it for a few years and so do my after-school students. The worksheets are helpful and keeps them engaged. They also get to track how well they are doing compared to others. I especially like how I can track as a parent and teacher on their progress and the website.

  24. Florence Gogan - September 16, 2014

    Thanks for you post. I really like the information which you have shared in your post about.

  25. lawrence agbemabiese - September 3, 2014

    This is an excellent resource. Thanks for putting it together!

  26. Opal J. Watkins - August 9, 2014

    Thanks for a great sites. Some kids are brilliant in Maths subjects naturally however for most kids maths is just like a nightmare. Everyone knows practice is the best way to sharp your skills in Mathematics but It’s not too easy as we think. Your interest in particular field enforce you to do it but you are not interested than it’s useless.

  27. Zulu - July 29, 2014

    Thanks for a great compilation. To some kids Maths comes naturally however for most kids who struggle, practice is the best way to master your skills in Maths. The below three sites help you in enhancing your skills

    • Laura Petersen - July 29, 2014

      Thank you for adding a few more sites into the discussion! Math really is important and it is a shame so many kids fear and hate it. We adults need to work to end that! :)

      • Addie - January 11, 2015

        I was trying to find websites that were interactive as well as detailed steps to do math with my 10 year old. I know the school have omitted the basics. Still kids need to understand the “how-to” so they wont be afraid. Thank you.

        • Laura Petersen - February 18, 2015

          Thank you, Addie! I appreciate the comment. :) And I am glad this list is helpful! :) Good luck to your 10-year old and let us know if you ever need anything else from free resources to tutoring help.

  28. John Tranter - July 22, 2014

    @Darshna…Yes it’s at Transum.org

  29. John Tranter - March 4, 2014

    Hi Laura, have a look at this huge list of math lesson starter activities, each with a follow on activity for the children. The starters are designed for teachers to use projected in front of a whole class but they are also great fun for children to browse through themselves. The website also includes puzzles, games, quizzes and some great fun math activities.

    • darshna - July 19, 2014

      Laura….. very good compilation.

      @ John Tranter……is it a website that you are talkin about ? I would like to know !

    • CoolMathApps - May 18, 2015

      Hi Laura Petersen. It helpful for me. Because i’m creating a website about Math. And i want my website to become popular as webs in your topic :). Thank you!

      • Laura Petersen - May 26, 2015

        Hello John,

        Very glad to hear you found this a useful resource! Best of luck with your math website creation.

        Laura

    • Michael - June 11, 2015

      Hello Laura,

      I’ve been working on a website I’d very much appreciate you taking a look at. I wrote nearly all the songs based on 3rd grade CC standards, so it is geared toward a fairly specific age range. I hope the lessons and activities help teachers that are looking to provide students a variety of learning center types, parents that may not have access to a tutor, and students that view the content. The site will ultimately have 28 weeks worth of daily content that builds upon itself, but I will be adding indexing features that will help teachers better fish out relevant content in the near future. The site isn’t complete just yet, but I think enough has been posted to be useful. Thank you for providing and continuing to participate in this forum.

      http://www.makeyourmathpop.net/

      • Laura Petersen - June 15, 2015

        Hi Michael,

        I took a look at your site and watched a couple videos. Very cute! I can tell they are geared toward elementary school, but could even be fun for junior high students who need a refresher. :) Keep me posted on updates and when your site is complete!

        Videos, in particular, I think are a powerful medium for communication today, especially with students!

        Laura

        • Michael - June 15, 2015

          Hello Laura,

          Thank you for checking out the site, and the kind words. I’ll keep working on it, and will certainly update you of new features and when the site is completed!

          Michael
