    I printed off 180 questions from, with answers as well.

    I was able to choose the amount of each type of equation, and the percent of questions that would involve fractions in the equation.

    *Very Cool*

    If you go to this site, click on the link at the top, or the picture.

    From there, it will have a pop-up! On the pop-up put your mouse on the Topics button on the left.

    There are two to choose from: Topics 1-6, and Topics 7-12. If you choose the Topics 7-12, make sure you move your pointer to slightly go around the Topics 1-6 button.

    This site seems to be really good for graphing, etc. That's what I'm doing now.

    ...Trying to learn how to graph y=1.5x +1 using the slope-intercept form.

    you can access the textbook companion website of addison/wesley math publishers mathxl software at for free. you will need to download one or two drivers in order for the mathxl software to run on your computer before you can access the actual math programs. the instructions to do this are on the website. once you do that you choose one of their math textbooks by title and author from pre-algebra to calculus and you will be given access to unlimited practice problems arranged by the textbook chapters of the book you have chosen. the program will give you step-by-step solutions to every problem you pick to solve. you can also ask the program to give you similar problems to solve in order to practice more of the same.

    for help with working with fractions:

    as a nurse for many years, the most complex math i've had to use has been knowing how to work with fractions (ratios) and how to find "x", the unknown, in a simple algebra problem on occassion. you can see examples of the kind of medication calculations nurses are asked to perform on this sticky thread in the nursing student assitance forum:

    Practice as many problems as you can! Find sites off of the internet that is geared toward the math you are learning, and read different methods of how to solve the variety of problems you may be struggling with. Sometimes having something explained in different words may help because you may not understand it one way, and with another it just clicks!

    Good luck!
