Recommend Website for Learning Math on my Own?

    Recommend Website for Learning Math on my Own??

    When learning algebra, my instructor used an online program/website called pearson/my mathLab to assign homework. i found this to be EXTREMEMLY helpful in learning how to do the work, as it provided unlimited practice problems with solutions, and even videos on how to solve the trickier ones.

    I am now studying trigonometry on my own this summer to better prepare me for calculus. Unfortunately, MyMathLab does not allow access to their site unless you are registered in a course. I am looking for a website that provides problems in such a manner. I know I can always use textbooks, however I found using a site like this to be so much simpler and easier, and most importantly, it helped to motivate me to move on to the next level/complete all the problems in one sitting. I get restless and bored with textbooks for some reason.

    In any case, if anyone knows of such a site I would very much appreciate a recommendation. I don't care if you have to pay a fee to use it. It would be worth every penny!

    thanks!!

    Khan Academy, NPTEL.

    And shouldn't this be in the "Math and Science Learning Materials" Section instead?

    I don't think normal members have the permission to post on 'Learning Materials' forum. But do check it out, there are quite a lot good resources in there.

    In addition to dimension10's recommendation of Khan Academy, you can try out Patrick's video's on math. Another place to do trigonometry exclusively is Trig without Tears : http://oakroadsystems.com/twt/ [Broken]

    I do not specifically know of a website that will give you good challenging problems, though. I tend to do it from various books :tongue2:

    Oh, didn't know that. Haven't gone there before!
