Hi guys, I am currently selfstudying math for my GED (Matura in Austria), and I kinda need to step up my game by a lot.
I do not attend any courses, nor do I plan to do so. I've been trying to learn from the school textbooks, but since they do not provide answers, nor approach hints or tips, it's not really good for learning, just for a general overview of stuff. The general big topics are: Analytic geometry Optimization problems Algebra Discussion of functions Nonlinear Algebra Sequences, limits, etc. Trigonometry Probability and Statistics So I'm looking for any webpages, hopefully interactive, where I can learn all those things stepbystep I am pretty good at math, and have a good grasp of it, but it's been years since the last time I did those things, and some, like integral functions, I've never even tried I've looked at KhanAcademy, and it seems pretty helpful, but a bit all over the place and I'm not sure if it's that good. Do you have any helpful resources or any ideas how I could improve my selfstudies? Thank you in advance :)

I don't know of any interactive webpages personally: www.purplemath.com is pretty good for reviewing the concepts you will learn in the book's you have.
Google pointed me to this: http://teachers.henrico.k12.va.us/ma...gebra2/11.htm you might try that as well, I've only breifly looked into the website though. Google is your friend here.

Learning Math for GED
Paul's Online Math Notes can serve as a good introduction to Algebra and elementary calculus topics, like limits and optimization:
http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/ Associated with the notes are several pages of practice problems to reinforce the material. Using your topic list, I'm sure a web search will turn up many pages similar to the Math Notes. You pointed out that it has been some time since your initial request. The net is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you really want to get your GED, don't just sit back; take charge of your education. If the textbooks you have don't provide answers to problems, find some others. Go to a library. There are many opportunities available to continue your education, but sometimes it takes extra effort to take advantage of these.
