Web Sites of Interest

SparkNotes: Math Study Guides

While many English teachers might consider Spark Notes a distraction and a bane, it turns out that the Math section of this well-known tool's website offers some excellent resources for everything from pre-algebra to relatively advanced calculus. Students who are in need of some easy to follow math tutoring may find the site especially helpful. Selecting any of the several dozen sections on the main page navigates to an in-depth treatment of that topic. For instance, the Operations area under Pre-Algebra opens to a General Info Section and then eight different topics (Order of Operations, Problems, Properties of Addition, Problems, etc.), each featuring step-by-step explanations. While the math presented here is clearly best learned with a good teacher and a great textbook, the
SparkNotes site proves surprisingly helpful as a supplement. [CNH]

Women in Science

This radio series is produced with the express purpose of getting women involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. As the site notes, it's a great resource for students, teachers, parents, guidance counselors, organizational leaders, researchers, professors, or anyone  nterested in helping women pursue careers intechnical fields. Readers will find much of interest in features such as Her-Story: Then & Now, which profiles both historical and present-day female STEM pioneers. The Sounds of Progress, another feature, offers an eight-part documentary-style series that covers groundbreaking research, great women in science, and other topics. And this is just the beginning of what this fantastic site has to offer. [CNH]
