    What did your school teach you to memorize?
    Formulas? (a^2 + b^2 = c^2, distance formula, midpoint formula, quadratic equation, etc...)
    or
    Arithmetics? (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponent, square root, log, derivative, integrals, etc...)

    If its formulas don't worry because those are much easier to understand.

    This is a very good site for quadratic equation and why it works:
    http://www.analyzemath.com/Equations...quadratic.html

    Logarithms are the exact opposite of exponents.
    This site explains them well:
    http://www.themathpage.com/aPreCalc/logarithms.htm

    Personally, I never liked matrices but here are some good sites for matrices:
    http://library.thinkquest.org/20991/alg2/matrices.html
    http://edhelper.com/Matrices.htm
    http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~...erminants.html


    I don't think there is just one website where you can go to learn math. You should just stick with google.com to search for all your math needs. For example search "quadratic formula proof" to find out why it works.

    Anything else?
