Great web resource for math and more that I just found

    This website claims, "The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing a world-class education to anyone, anywhere."


    It includes material on many subjects; I posted it here because I had to pick something, but I believe it has something for almost anyone. I just thought I'd share it with you. I came across it completely by chance on the New Scientist website.

    Has anyone tried out any of these lessons? Are they any good?

    Good morning, afternoon, and evening everyone!

    I used this website - http://www.aleks.com/ - for my VUB (Veterans Upward Bound) mathematics program this past summer. It has various prep subjects from elementary and high school math to prep courses for geometry, college algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and prep for physics' mathematics. Plus it has mathematics for chemistry. There is a fee, but it varies depending on the if you purchase a monthly, 6 month, a yearly rate.

    The customer service is also very good. They are located in Southern California, so schedule your phone calls accordingly.

    I also use patrickjmt (http://www.youtube.com/user/patrickJMT?feature=chclk), mathtutors, and midnight tutors. They can all be found on youtube and they are all the perfect price, free. Plus, I highly recommend Paul's Online Notes: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/. I'll just leave it as a surprise. It's pretty cool.

    I'll be honest, I haven't tried the Khan Academy, but I've heard nothing but good things. Sharing is caring.

    Enjoy the links, ladies and gentlemen!

    - Doc

    No problem, Chris. Here is one more for each PFer that views this thread. It is by Harvey Mudd College in California


    It has an Algebra review but mostly focuses on Pre-Calculus to Differentials. Either way, it is a great source for working ahead or reviewing.

    Thanks this stuff is great, and if it's free it's for me!

    Hi, I only used Khan Academy videos for Linear Algebra (even though i knew about them long before) because my prof puts up so we could see it before our linear algebra lecture. The videos are great. I am surprised you guys haven't heard of Khan Academy. cheers!

    p.s I'm sorry that the answer to your question is kinda late. Maybe you already answered your own question!
