CONTENT:
Hotmath was created by a group of college professors and high school teachers to provide homework help with actual problems from popular algebra, geometry, and calculus textbooks.
AESTHETICS:
The layout is simple with minimal graphics. Color is used to add visual interest and separate the areas of the page.
ORGANIZATION:
Navigation is made easy with menus on the left side of the page. There are also navigation bars at the top and the bottom of the page.
REVIEW:
Hotmath is a great site for teachers, students, and parents. Most of the resources require a paid subscription, but some activities are free. Students needing extra help will find step-by-step solutions for actual problems in their textbooks. Each subject area has a list of textbooks that are supported. Students simply click on the textbook they use in the classroom and enter the page number of the problem that is causing them trouble. Each solution is written in language students will understand and follows the format of the instructions from the textbook. Subject areas included are pre-algebra, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and more.
