**Khan Academy** - a not-for-profit organization with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a world-class education to anyone anywhere. All the materials and resources are available completely free of charge - no login / password required. Make use of our extensive video library, practice exercises, and assessments from any computer with access to the web.

The library of videos covers K-12 math (including algebra, geometry, calculus, finance), biology, chemistry, physics, and history. Each video is a digestible chunk, approximately 10 minutes long, and especially purposed for viewing on the computer.

Practice math at your own pace with adaptive assessment exercises. You can start at 1+1 and work your way into calculus or jump right into whatever topic needs some brushing up. Each problem is randomly generated, so you never run out of practice material. If you need a hint, every single problem can be broken down, step-by-step, with one click. If you need more help, you can always watch a related video.
