I'm wondering if anyone else has came across this site, its covers a wide range of maths topics and some physics as well. The lessons are in a video format and are hosted on Youtube.

Khan Academy Videos


The videos of Salman Khan are not meant to be university-level videos that constitute a class in and of themselves, but are actually, I believe, supplements.

The Kahn Academy just won $2 million, from Google.



Bill Gates watches these videos with his kids. Kahn also won the 2009 Microsoft Education Award.

I have a tear in my eye watching this, I'm so glad he's successful and is expanding this
project while keeping it totally free. If it wasn't for Sal I would probably not see math the
way I do after a terrible schooling. I'm so glad and wish him all the best.

This is an excellent point, Char. These videos are a powerful resource to help solidify one's conceptual understanding of the topics he covers. His epsilon-delta explanation led me to an "ah-ha" moment, something for which I thirst endlessly. While not a class in and of themselves, his videos are an excellent supplement to the corresponding courses.

I really admire him as a person, and I greatly respect his efforts to make science available, and approachable, to those who can't afford a formal education.
