Online Videos:

If you haven't had very much math, I recommend Khan Academy. I link below to a series of videos. Skip any you like. Also please browse the site for more. The main issues we deal with in this class include:
Solving equations, for which I recommend the series, more fancy equations for beginners
and Solving for a variable
and Simplifying complicated equations.
For help in calculus, I recommend Power Rule
and Minima, maxima, inflection points and critical point (you don't need to worry about concavity yet). He also has a nice discussion of elasticity. hi
