The Khan Academy is Teaching the Online World

Here is a great learning site to help brush up on your algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus skills. You can also find courses for economics, finance, history and science. This growing site is called the Khan Academy. The instructor, Salman Khan, is helping current students and former students gain or regain their footing with these topics. He basically provides a 10 minute block of instruction (due to youtube’s time limit) on a given topic, which is short enough to keep your attention span. His site offers over 1800 different courses.

Salman gave up a successful career in finance to share his vast knowledge with the world for FREE. From what I can see, he’s a terrific math teacher.

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

Check out the Khan Academy and its amazing story.

And by the way, the Academy was recently selected by Google's project 10^100
