Thankfully, my son is young enough that I can easily provide all of the homework help he needs.
But, I think we’re going to run into problems when he hits high school. My math and science skills are fuzzy at best, so I’m not likely to be a great resource for algebra or chemistry assistance.
Since he currently wants to be a scientist or a robot-builder, I suspect he’ll be taking quite a few courses that are beyond my capabilities.
Fortunately, sites like Alleyoop have been created to help parents who share my struggle. Alleyoop’s goal is to help teens get ready for college by providing them with the math and science help they need. Alleyoop offers help with:
- Pre Algebra
- Algebra I
- Algebra II
- Statistics and Probability
- Earth Science
- Life Science
- Physical Science
Alleyoop has thousands of videos, practice quizzes, and challenges from collaborators like NASA and National Geographic.
The site uses sophisticated technology to identify the areas students need help in, then recommends a program that lets them learn at their own pace.
The site is owned by Pearson, a company that is known as a leader in education.
The Alleyoop experience is a game with missions that let students earn virtual currency as they complete various learning achievements.
The goal is to help teens master concepts in a way that gets them excited about developing the STEM skills they’ll need to succeed in college and beyond.
If your son or daughter has used Alleyoop, I would love to hear about your experience with the site.
