The average elementary school student in the United States spends roughly six hours per week learning math in the classroom -- more than 200 hours a year -- but only about 40 percent of fourth-graders test at a “proficient” level or higher in age-appropriate mathematical principles. It’s become common for students to seek outside-the-classroom help from peers and, increasingly, from the always-on resources of the internet. Here are some of the best sites to visit when looking for free math help online.
