Mathletics is a Flash-based Australian offering that appears to be quite popular. It offers a "virtual tutor" that takes students through mathematics problems.
[Mathletics appears to be similar in concept to Heymath, which I wrote about earlier.]
There's no free demo (for individuals) of Mathletics, so I can't check it out.
Are any of you using it? Let me know what you think of it.
From a usability and search point of view, pure Flash-based sites are quite annoying. The Flash programming on Mathletics is rather system-heavy. It slowed my CPU to a crawl...

Kids love mathletics. I think it's ability to let kids compete against in real time against each other is what separates it from other similar services.
