As most of you know my son is homeschooled. Some people think that makes us crazy, other think we should get trophies for it. Most days…I go along with the thoughts that we are crazy. Ok, not really…it’s only the math part that makes me feel that way.
We have tried MANY math curriculum’s and I wish we could say that we had found the perfect one. But heck…lets be honest. It’s Math. There is no perfect one. I did find the perfect tutor though. And he is FREE!!!
I actually kinda like math, but found out I am not the best teacher of math. I don’t know why it works a certain way…it just does. And that frustrates Tate. He wants to know the how and why.Me, I really don’t care why or want to spend hours analyzing it. I just want the answer and I can’t always explain how I know that is the answer, I just know that it is.
Then I found the Khan Academy. Sal (I am calling him by his first name because he is now my best friend…even if he doesn’t know it), started doing videos to help tutor his niece. That is how the Khan Academy started. He has done so many tutorials on so many different subjects (not only Math) that there is something to help just about everyone…even in Calculus. And he has made them all available for anyone to use…free of charge. He is seriously my hero.
I also love the finance section!! That is next on out list. I am going to have Erin go through that section as well since she will soon be getting married and be out on her own.
If you homeschool or are in a math class yourself you should seriously check out the Khan Academy. Best thing since sliced bread!!
