Here are some that are the "cream of the crop" when it comes to math help message boards. Typically, they require a student to show some work before someone helps -- or the helpers will only point out how to get started. You could definitely use these message boards as a parent if you can't figure out a problem in your child's math book, or if you have generic math or math education questions.
