Khan Academy - you can search a topic and it will show you a video example of working through the problem with great explanation! Awesome homework helper!!

Multiplication - this site has a "LEARN" tab at the top to help with strategies, as well as a "GAME" tab to make the learning fun!

Math is Fun - great resource that will offer a "game" approach so your child doesn't feel like they are "working" while learning!

Fun 4 the Brain - another great resource that makes learning fun! Just select the topic your child needs help with and let them practice, practice, practice!!
