Math Helps FREE
It's hard to explain via e-mail so I have attached a link. I learned about this method through the Math Basics video in the The Great Courses high school math series. I taught it to my 10 year old who had never multiplied more than 2 single digits together. After watching a 30 minute instructional piece on this method she did 2 worksheets for 2 and 3 digits multiplication problems!!!

Microsoft FREE Beginner Developer Learning Center
From another list...

>>In doing a little research following everyone's great recommendations, I came across the following page at Microsoft:

http://msdn. microsoft. com/en-us/ beginner/ default.aspx

Apparently Microsoft has a free Beginner Developer Learning Center, basically a free computer programming course. It looks like the Web Track and Windows Track have straightforward lessons, while the Kids Corner has lessons plus teacher lesson plans and quizzes (probably geared more towards a public/private school environment with many kids and much hand-holding, didn't really explore this section much as it looked like a whole lot of unnecessary work for me! :-)

GPA Calculator
My 16 yod is now driving. The insurance company said that she would be eligible for a discount (about $600 per year) if she had a 3.0 GPA or above; but I would have to show proof of the GPA. Of course I want the discount and didn't know how to calculate the GPA. Here is a website that explains it very well.

Graphing calculator website
