Khan Academy: The FREE Place to Learn 

Whether you are a parent, a student or a teacher, why don’t you take some time this summer and explore Khan Academy.  In 2006, Sal Khan started making videos meant to help his nieces with their homework.  It has grown since then to a large website where anyone can access help on a variety of educational content.  The website, now known as Khan Academy, hosts 5500 instructional videos and over 100,000 practice problems in math alone!

Khan Academy is a totally free online academy offering practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that encourage learners to study at their own pace. Khan Academy instruction includes math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. The math tasks provide instruction and practice for learners from kindergarten to calculus using advanced, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. Khan Academy has collaborated with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

By creating a free login, teachers can create assignments and assign them to classes of students, chart their progress and mentor their students.  With an account, students can work through assigned lessons and explore on their own while Khan Academy tracks their progress and helps them along the way.  Parents can also create accounts and track the progress of their children.

TEST PREP

One portion of Khan Academy is the standardized test prep offerings.  Khan Academy helps prepare students to take many standardized exams required for high education, such as the SAT.  In partnership with the College Board, creators of the SAT, Khan Academy has full-length practice exams, videos and exercises that anyone can use.  The Khan Academy website states, “Studying for the SAT for 20 hours on Khan Academy’s free Official SAT Practice is associated with an average score gain of 115 points. That’s nearly double the average score gain compared to students who don’t use our free test prep” (Khan Academy, 2017).

ADMISSIONS ESSAYS

Khan Academy has a twelve-video series that helps students write essays for their college admission packets.  Users are given feedback as they work their way through the videos.  Many students use this feature as a type of writing coach to help them as they work through the admissions essay process.

ELEMENTARY COURSES

Khan Academy’s elementary content encompasses all K-5 math grades as well as key grammar topics and some resources used to teach computer science.  Each topic includes an Explore and a Practice section.

MIDDLE SCHOOL COURSES

Khan Academy’s middle school content covers all math concepts for grades 6-8 and key grammar topics.  Again, there are resources for teachers to use with computer science.  A special feature is the Hour of Code practice that Khan Academy offers to its users at this level.

HIGH SCHOOL COURSES

Khan Academy offers non-Advanced Placement content covering all math, history, science and technology.  Advanced Placement content includes art history, biology, calculus AB and BC, Chemistry, Physics 1 and 2, Statistics, US history and world history.
