Every Grade 7-10 student in the York Catholic District School Board now has access to an online math support website — “Homework Help”. This site is provided free-of-charge by the Ministry of Education, in partnership with TV Ontario.
You can log in Sunday through Thursday (5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) for one-on-one, confidential help with a certified Ontario math teacher. The website has safe, interactive discussion rooms for each grade where you can view current lessons, watch tutors explain concepts and solve problems on the whiteboard, and ask their own question for on-the-spot help.
Other 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”. Every student has his/her personal “locker”, where their sessions are stored for viewing anytime.
You can register by selecting “student” and using your Ontario Education Number (OEN)* and date of birth. (* Students can find their OEN on their report card.)
