Will Your Kid Need Algebra Homework in the Future?

Jul 28, 2008
Nearly every student has to cope with the prospect of algebra homework during the course of his or her High School career since it is the mainstay of the mathematics instruction in most secondary schools the world over. Algebra is the discipline of mathematics that seeks to explain relationships of events and amounts and their dynamics especially change over time.

Like most forms of mathematics, algebra builds upon the previous concepts that have been presented. Therefore, it is easy to become lost in an algebra class in a relatively short period of time. The seemingly limitless amount of algebra homework that is often assigned to students is an attempt to mitigate this by giving the learner a hands-on approach to the topic. It is hoped that by doing a repetition of many types of algebraic problems, the theories will become understandable and remembered.

If the form of brute force learning involved with doing lots of algebra homework does not help you or your student stay up with the class, it is time to get help. Help with algebra homework is usually available at the school and tutors can usually be found. But how expert are these tutors and how do you know that they will not just assign more algebra homework?

An alternative to a real life tutor is to be found on the Internet where there are a number of software solutions and website aids that will help with algebra homework. One of these is a website called classzone.com which promises to make the field of algebra comes alive to the student. If this is too lively for your needs, you may want to try sosmath.com/algebra. At this website, you may purchase a CD for only $19.95 that promises to steer the student thought the labyrinth of algebraic equations. It does seem at least to have a thorough set of set definitions and terms that are used in the study of algebra.

Algebraonline.com is a free algebraic tutorial that is designed to aid the student. It offers Algebra Homework Buster software that allows the student to enter a problem from his or her algebra homework and receive the solution. While this may indeed "bust" the amount of and time to prepare a student's algebra homework, it is unlikely that this quick fix will result in any real learning. Getting all of the problems correct on the algebra homework assignment will loose its luster once the "homework buster" software is not available for the midterm exam.

This type of program, though well intended, really has to be reserved for use until after the student has tried to solve a problem. Once the attempt has been legitimately made, it can be useful to enter the problem into the software program to see how the correct solution was achieved. If used in this way, and not abused to get a quick fix on and avoid the assigned algebra homework, this website could be a useful additional tool in preparing a student's assigned and required algebra homework.
