Teaching Math
innalessy
1. In English - try Mathletics.
They are strange with their scores, because if you've done a test 100% correctly fromn the first attempt you'll have less points that a person who tried it 10 times before having the same 100% and you are not reinforced better if you learn a subject in a day that in a week, but it's a good tool to study math, very funny and easy.
http://www.mathletics.co.uk/

2. In French - Amicollege.
Very poor interface, but teh content is god. My kids know multiplications table from that site - I selected it from 10-15 otehrs and found here it's teh most effective approach for MT.

3. In Russian - a range of CD-trainers
http://babydreams.bestnetservice.com/simulators1.htm
They promise to translate the CDs into English by the end of the year. The content and educating technics are very similar to Mathletics, thus an interface is weaker, reinforcing could be better and there is no "progress tracking" system. Thus, they have really great CDs for studying graphs, movement tasks and equations(in Russian).
Anything more?

Which test to choose to test a child's IQ
innalessy
Any Child Psychologist could do an IQ test.
A psychologist should be careful in choosing a test for multi-lingual kids. For example, WISK is suitable for children who speak same language since birth till the test in different environments - home, school, etc.
For immigrant kids (or bilingual, multi-lingual) SON-R is more suitable, because the vocabulary on each language could be less broad than the same of a child who speaks 1 language only.
If it is required to check IQ for immigrant kids using verbal tests then the language which is more suitable for a child for comprehension and with bigger vocabulary is regularly chosen.
