Algebra Homework Help -- People's Math! This site has homework help from free tutors, a section on how to solve word problems, and a vocabulary game.

Math Academy - math explanations in an encyclopedia format for elementary basic math through Calculus Solutions

Home School Math - good worksheet resource for parents and teachers for grades K-6

Harcourt Math Glossary - multimedia glossary for grades 1-8. The grade 8 selection has a lot of definitions that relate to Algebra.

Wikipedia On-line Encyclopedia, has articles on Math, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus. Go to the home page and type in any topic. I have found that Wikipedia is fairly reliable on math and math history, but as always with any open wiki, all information should be verified but other sources.
