## Maths Dictionary

Jenny Eather has created a rather useful site for kids to learn and understand about different basic terms in maths. It’s called A Maths Dictionary for Kids.

Such a colourful, visually engaging site, with a clickable alphabet on the left leading to the different maths terms beginning with that letter. Upon choosing a term from the dictionary you’ll see a definition and some sums to do allowing you to test and develop your understanding.

## MathTV

The site MathTV.com is brilliant on a number of levels. Firstly, if you’re a student and you want some area of maths explained via a simple, understandable video instruction then look no further. Areas covered are broken down into the topics Calculus, Trig, Algebra and Basic Maths, and then broken down further into multiple sub-topics. With many of the problems there are videos available by different presenters, come in languages other than English, including Spanish. To access these videos you don’t even need to register and log in. What could be simpler?

Additional to all that, if you are a maths tutor and you are wanting to set up a programme of maths to help with your students’ studies, you can create what is called a ‘Playlist’. You do need to register to access this facility, but the registration and login processes are simple and quick; as is the setting up of a playlist. Once your playlist is created, you are provided with a URL to access it, which you can pass on to your students.
