Khan Academy

My friend, Laurel, posted about the Khan Academy on her blog and I followed the link expecting it to be nice.  Holy cow!  This site is amazing!

The article Laurel posted about (Global Teacher) only touches on the enormity and quality of the lessons available for FREE!  I plan to use this as a very large part of the kids' math, science, current events, and history curriculum fro the rest of their education.

Today, we watched lessons on multiplication tables for Paige and "lattice multiplication" for Levi, which I had never even heard of!  Levi also watched the "intro to physics" and we talked about how Myth-Busters uses those principles.

Sal Khan is a genius and amazingly generous man and I am so thankful to have people like him in my "village."

I'm so glad you've found it useful. I haven't had a chance to really explore it yet, but what a great concept!
