Math Help for Grades 7 – 10
Have a child in Grade 7 who doesn’t quite understand how to add fractions? Or maybe your teenager is struggling with a geometry assignment? Extra help is now available at no cost to you!
Check out Homework Help, where certified Ontario teachers are online 20 hours a week to provide free math tutoring for the Grade 7 to 10 math students in the Near North District School Board.
Students can log in Sunday to Thursday, 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., for one-on-one confidential help. There are interactive discussion rooms for each grade where they can view to the current lesson, watch tutors draw on the whiteboard — and then type their own question for on-the-spot help in real time.
To access HomeworkHelp.ilc.org, your child will need a username and password. All Grade 7
students should have created an account in their math classes by the end of November. Grade 8-10 students are able to use the account they created last year.
Registration for the service can also be done at home. If your son or daughter has forgotten their username and password, simply re-register. Note that their username will default back to the name selected last year.
All students have a virtual locker, that houses all of their tutor chat sessions in video format for viewing anytime. Students can also “tag” questions other students ask that they feel would be beneficial to them. These tagged sessions are placed into their locker the next day for future viewing whenever they need it.
Other math resources on the website include videos of teachers leading students through the top 20 most commonly asked math problems, interactive math tutorials and highlights of best sessions. We encourage you to use this site with your son or daughter.
Studies show that students who like math and have solid math skills are more likely to succeed in school and later in life.
