    I never learned the math before the start of high school so Im told I need to re learn from pre-Algebra up to calculus. I need any good internet resource to help me achieve my goal of being able to complete my grade 2 math and get a Bachelors of science.

    Google is the best bet for math sources. These are the ones that I found immediately:

    http://www.math.com/
    http://www.math.temple.edu/~cow/
    http://www.understandingcalculus.com/

    Also, the grand majority of mathematics labels are actually from Latin, using archaic definitions that, while making sense if you know Latin, are never properly defined. I find that learning the etymology of Mathematical terms and their Latin definition, like "quotient", makes comprehension remarkably simple. Use:

    http://www.etymonline.com/
    http://math.about.com/library/bla.htm
    http://www.yourdictionary.com/dictio...finitions.html
    http://www.Answers.com (the dictionary)
    http://www.Merriam-Webster.com

    Basically, constantly cross-reference things that don't make sense. I've had to do this while learning all SORTS of things that include Latin-based jargon, and of course nothing ever defines it properly for the ignorant. Hence the need for cross-referencing.
