Help Yourself via Internet

There are so many websites out there that can help you do everything you need to do in order to pass a course. From online calculators like wolfram alpha, to citation generators – these are the things you’ll want to utilize during your college years (that is, if you need a little extra help.)

#1. Wolfram Alpha

Wolfram Alpha is basically the all-things calculator and problem solver. It’s almost like a search engine, where you type in what you want to know about or calculate – and it does it for you! My College Algebra teacher recommended this website to us (which, to be honest, I’m not really sure why, considering he gave many take-home quizzes through out the semester..) and it’s a site I’ve been using since, for general knowledge. It’s like the search engine encyclopedia that you can use to learn anything.

#2. Mathway

Even more specific towards College Algebra was Mathway – an algebra calculator. From graphing logarithmic functions to finding the zeros of an equation, you can find any answer via Mathway. But the site’s not just for Algebra – it’s also for Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics, and Finite Math. Basically – you can use this website all through out high school and college. It even allows you to see the step-by-step.

#3. EasyBib

Easy Bib is a way to cite your sources free (if in MLA format, which is what most of your professors will ask for anyway.) I use it all of the time, unless I’m using a site like Oxford Music Online – which has it’s own citation link.

#4. Textbooks is one of my favorite sites for comparing prices on textbooks. I’m even lucky enough to write articles for the website as well! It gives you a great selection of choices, satisfaction guaranteed, up to 97% savings on your college textbooks, and even coupons for your textbook needs.

I find it to be even better than Bigwords, which is another textbook comparison website.

#5. College Ruled

In the past, I’ve talked about how, to better prepare ourselves for next semester, we should own some sort of calendar, agenda, or Microsoft Excel-type program to organize our classes. College Ruled does exactly that – with features on creating a class schedule, organizing groups, assignments, and notes.

#6. Cupcake Ipsum

For the procrastinators out there who want to make sure they get an A on their paper… Cupcake Ipsum is here to help! I mean, just look at the introductory paragraph they whipped up for me:

“Cake applicake topping muffin bonbon toffee chocolate cake. Bonbon chocolate cake Brownie chocolate bar macaroon. Cookie soufflĂ© muffin ice cream. Icing muffin jujubes soufflĂ© marshmallow applicake chocolate cake ice cream sweet roll. Sweet lollipop toffee tart toffee donut marzipan tiramisu. Tiramisu pastry donut jujubes tart carrot cake jelly-o applicake.”

A+, Amber. A+.
