Don’t sweat it-there are so many great resources available for free on the internet that often do the same great things. Here’s a list of some of our favorites:

  1. Thanks for calling my attention to eTutor Graphing Calculator. I need this!

  2. Thank you so much for the info about Cramster. As a Sandwich Generation granny nanny who often tutors my older grandchild, math and science are giving me as much grief as they did in high school and college, so I’m always looking for good help. All of these sound like good apps but this in particular, for the iphone, I have already added to mine and am looking forward to testing it out. Thank you very much!
