Khan Academy - Alternative Education

Khan Academy - Alternative Education

By: Gwendolyn Strmic

The Khan Academy is an organization on a mission.
We're a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education to anyone anywhere.
All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.

How it works for students

Students can make use of our extensive video library, practice exercises, and assessments from any computer with access to the web.

Complete custom self-paced learning toolA dynamic system for getting helpA custom profile, points, and badges to measure progress
Coaches, parents, and teachers

Coaches, parents, and teachers have unprecedented visibility into what their students are learning and doing on the Khan Academy.

Ability to see any student in detailA real-time class report for all studentsBetter intelligence for doing targeted interventions
Browse our library of over 2,400 educational videos...
Topics covered from very basic algebra all the way through algebra II. This is the best algebra playlist to start at if you’ve never seen algebra before. Once you get your feet wet, you may want to try some of the videos in the “Algebra I Worked Examples” playlist.
Algebra I Worked Examples
180 Worked Algebra I examples (problems written by the Monterey Institute of Technology and Education). You should look at the “Algebra” playlist if you’ve never seen algebra before or
if you want instruction on topics in Algebra II. Use this playlist to see a ton of example problems in every topic in the California Algebra I Standards. If you can do all of these problems on your own, you should probably test out of Algebra I (seriously).
The most basic of the math playlists. Start here if you have very little background in math fundamentals (or just want to make sure you do). After watching this playlist, you should be ready for the pre-algebra playlist.
Banking and Money
Videos on how banks work and how money is created.
Covers topics seen in a first year college or high school biology course.
Brain Teasers
Random logic puzzles and brain teasers. Fun to do and useful for many job interviews!

CAHSEE Example Problems
Sal working through the 53 problems from the practice test available at
for the CAHSEE (California High School Exit Examination). Clearly useful if you’re looking to take that exam. Probably still useful if you want to make sure you have a solid understanding of basic high school math.
Topics covered in the first two or three semesters of college calculus. Everything from limits
to derivatives to integrals to vector calculus. Should understand the topics in the pre-calculus playlist first (the limit videos are in both playlists)
California Standards Test: Algebra I
Sal works through the problems from the CA Standards released questions: http://www.cde. . Good videos to review Algebra I (The “Algebra I Worked Examples” playlist is more comprehensive and should probably be watched first).
California Standards Test: Algebra II
Sal works through 80 questions taken from the California Standards Test for Algebra II. Good
place to review the major topics in Algebra II even if you’re not in California. Many of these
topics are taught in more depth in the “Algebra” playlist.
California Standards Test: Geometry
Sal does the 80 problems from the released questions from the California Standards Test for Geometry.
Videos on chemistry (roughly covering a first year high school or college course).
Competition Math
Example problems from random math competitions
Computer Science
Introduction to programming and computer science
Cosmology and Astronomy
Videos attempting to grasp a little bit about our Universe
Credit Crisis
Videos on the causes and effects of the credit crisis/crunch.
Videos about currency exchange
Current Economics
Discussions of economic topics and how they relate to current events.
Developmental Math
Worked developmental math examples from the Monterey Institute. These start pretty basic
and would prepare a student for the Algebra I worked examples
Developmental Math 2
Worked developmental math examples from the Monterey Institute (part 2). These start at Algebra I and would prepare a student for basic college mathematics.
Differential Equations
Topics covered in a first year course in differential equations. Need to understand basic differentiation and integration from Calculus playlist before starting here.

Videos on finance and macroeconomics
GMAT Data Sufficiency
Sal works through 155 data sufficiency problems in the GMAC GMAT Review book (so using
real GMAT problems). Buy the book, then watch the videos.
GMAT: Problem Solving
Sal works through tbe 249 problem solving (math) questions in the official GMAC GMAT
Geithner Plan
Videos on the Geithner Plan to solve the banking crisis.
Videos on geometry. Basic understanding of Algebra I necessary. After this, you’ll be ready for
The history of the world (eventually)!
IIT JEE Questions
Questions from previous IIT JEEs
Khan Academy-Related Talks and Interviews
Collection of interviews with and presentations by Salman Khan. Also a few other mentions of
Khan Academy at other talks.
Linear Algebra
Matrices, vectors, vector spaces, transformations. Covers all topics in a first year college linear algebra course. This is an advanced course normally taken by science or engineering majors after taking at least two semesters of calculus (although calculus really isn’t a prereq) so don’t confuse this with regular high school algebra.
MA Tests for Education Licensure (MTEL)-Pre-Alg
Massachusetts Tests for Education Licensure (MTEL) General Curriculum (03) Practice Test
explained by Sal. Good problems for deep understanding of pre-algebra concepts.
Organic Chemistry
Topics covered in college organic chemistry course. Basic understanding of basic high school
or college chemistry assumed
Paulson Bailout
Videos to help understand the bailout.
Projectile motion, mechanics and electricity and magnetism. Solid understanding of algebra
and a basic understanding of trigonometry necessary.
Videos on pre-algebra. Should be ready for the “Algebra” playlist if you understand everything
Non-trigonometry pre-calculus topics. Solid understanding of all of the topics in the “Algebra”
playlist should make this playlist pretty digestible.
Basic probability. Should have a reasonable grounding in basic algebra before watching.
SAT Preparation
I am going to work through every problem in the College Board “Official SAT Study Guide.”
You should take the practice tests on your own, grade them and then use these videos to understand the problems you didn’t get or review. Have fun!
Singapore Math
We will (eventually) do all of the lectures in the Singapore Math curriculum (which we like).
You can follow along through the workbooks available at
Introduction to statistics. Will eventually cover all of the major topics in a first-year statistics
course (not there yet!)
Videos on trigonometry. Watch the “Geometry” playlist first if you have trouble understanding
the topics covered here.
Valuation and Investing
Building blocks and case studies on the financial analysis and valuation of public equities.
Venture Capital and Capital Markets
All of the sources of funding (capital) for a business. Algebra 1 Examples
Select problems from’s Algebra 1 FlexBook (Open Source Textbook). This is a good playlist to review if you want to make sure you have a good understanding of all of the major topics in Algebra I.
