People know math and science skills are the common currency everyone needs to have to succeed in the increasingly competitive global economy, said US Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings. The good news is that education leaders are focusing on math and science, and the nation's schools are revamping their curricula. Math.com offers resources for all grade levels, including homework help, quizzes, games, advice on how to study, test-preparation tips, calculators, and expert answers to math questions. Parents can supplement classroom education and raise their kids' overall interest in math and science through family activities. For example, parents may want to teach their children math by teaching them about money. Parents may help increase this percentage in future generations by guiding their daughters to such sites as Girls Go Tech, which offers math, science, and technology information and games.
