Homework? This book presents the possibilities by identifying useful web sites for middle school students. If this book were next to the computer when required study was at hand, homework, school projects and exam preparation would be e-easy. The first chapters offer general homework assistance sites such as www.homeworkcentral.com and reference sites such as the Library of Congress and the Discovery Channel. Remaining chapters are organized by subject matter. Fourteen sites are presented in the science chapter to include Bill Nye the Science Guy, NASA and Extreme Science. Most web sites have a photo of the home page and written testimony from a middle schooler. The important warning advising against giving out your name and address to a stranger online and more is up front on page five. A glossary and web site index are provided. Part of the "Cool Sites" series. 2000, The Millbrook Press, Ages 9 to 14, $16.90 and $4.95. Reviewer: Jacki Vawter

Gr 4-8-An accessible compendium of top-notch curriculum-related Web sites. Divided by subject, it covers sites for general reference, math, language arts, history, geography, and science. For the most part, a single page is devoted to each site, with a brief description, a black-and-white picture of either the home page or a sample screen, and some student reviews. This title is much less intimidating than Marian Salzman and Robert Pondiscio's The Ultimate On-Line Homework Helper (Avon, 1996). Keep it handy for students who spend hours roaming aimlessly on the Web in search of information.-Yapha Nussbaum Mason, Brentwood Lower School, Los Angeles Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
