Homework Help

Here are some neat links for Homework Help

  • IXL Math and English
    • An international site, but focuses strongly on Math and English skills.
      • Why we like it: It has NY state standards, measurable skills for each grade level in both math and language arts – key for helping with those pesky ELA exams in late elementary school. 
  • Online Research Support
    • SALS (Southern Adirondack Library System) recommended sites for research
      • Why it’s great for teens and adults: While not so handy for our early reader friends (pre-school to 1st grade), this site has a plethora of information about everything – job hunting, health, taxes, homework, general information, and much more. It’s a good resource for parents rather than children. 
  • Homework Spot
    • A good ‘go to’ tool for answering those pesky homework problems.
      • Why we like it: There isn’t much you can’t find and answer to on this site, takes a little digging but the information is handy and helpful.
