WolframAlpha is a computational knowledge engine - basically, you can enter a problem, and it will solve it for you. It's great if you need to know how something works, but don't use it for all your homework - your teacher will figure it out what you're doing eventually.
WebMath is another computational knowledge engine, with a twist - it tells you how to do the problem yourself as well. Find your topic from their list, enter the information you know, and it will give the answer as well as an explanation. Great for teaching yourself concepts you don't understand in class.
Take your math textbook, put it into words you can understand, give it a sense of humor, and digitize it - that's Purplemath. It's great if you have a concept you can't seem to get, or if you don't understand the way the teacher explains it. Everyone has their own style of learning.
The name gives it away - Math.com is a website dealing with all things math. They have lessons on anything from basic math to Trig, and even have practice problems for you to do. Doing it yourself is key to learning math concepts.
