Khan Academy — Free Educational Fun

Khan Academy is a free, fun, educational and totally awesome organization. The goal of Khan Academy is to change "education for the better by providing a free world-class education to anyone anywhere." The site contains over 2,700 videos on math, physics, biology, chemistry, finance and art. Students, parents, coaches, and teachers can use Khan Academy in many ways. Teachers and homeschool parents can use this resource to coordinate classwork and monitor student work. Kids looking for homework help can find explanations and practice examples on the virtual scratch pad. Adults looking for continuing education opportunities will find help here as well. To get started, all you need to do is create an account, kids under the age of 13 will need a parent to do so, and you will be able to practice math skills, watch science and art history videos, follow up on your knowledge map and more. If getting smarter isn't enough motivation, you can also earn “energy points”, “badges” and some big bragging points among your friends and family. Check out the Khan Academy and browse through the amazing resources provided to you, for free!
