To help your high schooler hone his or her math skills, review MathPlanet.com. There are no games on this site. Instead, your child selects an area of focus from the column on the right-hand side of the screen. He or she can choose subjects like algebra, algebra II and geometry. Then, select the topic where you need more help. The web page walks you through the basics, gives the user examples and then includes a video explaining each concept.
