**MathHints.com** (formerly SheLovesMath.com) is a free website that includes hundreds of pages of math, explained in simple terms, with thousands of examples of worked-out problems. Topics cover **basic counting** through **Differential and Integral Calculus**! Use **Math Hints** to homeschool math, or as a supplement to math courses at school. Math Hints was developed by Lisa Johnson, who has tutored math for over **20** years.

My philosophy on teaching math:

- You can’t study for math tests without
**doing problems**! A lot of times, I think I know the subject I’m tutoring (by looking at the book), and then when I get in there and start solving problems, I realize that I didn’t know it as well as I thought I did! **Learning math should be an active experience and should relate to the world**. And always use “simpler numbers” if a problem’s numbers are complicated. For example, paying**$4**for**2**oranges makes it more obvious that you need to divide than paying**$5.88**for**3**oranges.**Learning math requires an understanding of what to “memorize” (for example, the tools), and what to “understand”**. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel; it’s already been invented.**Don’t worry if you have to memorize something with math without “understanding” it!****Learning more advanced math is no more than building on what is already known**: if you can add \(2+2\), and build with math tools, you can be taught to solve a complicated Calculus problem.**Math books**tend to “brag” and try to explain things with**difficult words**that sometimes don’t make sense! Math can be explained more easily with every day words.- Sometimes there’s
**just one little concept**that isn’t known or understood that makes a whole new math concept difficult. We need to find that and learn it! **Math = Rules + Examples + Practice, Practice, Practice**!!!
