The internet is a goldmine of helpful websites, but finding the pinnacle of usefulness is the main goal of organizers everywhere. Through many hours of research, our very best researchers here at The Herald have compiled a list of the diamond in the rough on the internet.

Educational Help

Desmos and Mathway are both graphing calculator websites that are useful in Algebra I, Algebra II, and Calculus, and many other math-based subjects. The calculators allow the user to type in equations and solve problems by typing in the equation.

Apps and websites like Grammarly or PaperRater check grammar, spelling, and plagiarism in essays. Sara Hetyonk, the talent acquisition manager at Grammarly, stated, “It allows me to have confidence that I have two pairs of eyes on everything that I write.” Some of Grammarly’s services are free, but accessing major grammar errors requires a subscription.

Studying Help

Noisli is a soundboard of relaxing sounds. Noisli is customizable and lets the user pick what sounds to listen to during their power hour.

Printing information from a webpage causes clutter on the printed page. Printfriendly.com removes all of the pictures and everything else on a webpage and simplifies it to only the text.

Miscellaneous Help
