Great way for students to practice and gain more confidence in math and number fluency!
Submitted 5 years ago
I like that there are multiple levels of learning. Such as pre-tests to determine level, videos, practice, and then a post-test.
How I Use It
I would use this for students to practice at home and expand upon what they are learning in class.

Khan Academy is the BEST app for MATH teaching and learning available
SELF PACED some students learn quickly, others more slowly, according to their ability, time, and desire to learn; videos can be paused, rewound, and re-watched students have to put in consistent daily effort, which is focused, and at the edge of their ability, to continue to improve! how do teachers encourage students to put in the effort in math?? MASTERY-BASED students (potentially) achieve 100% mastery of many math topics to confirm mastery, students/teachers/parents could ask students questions on that topic, to see if they really do have it nailed down teachers need to follow student progress, and provide small-group lessons to those at the same level / content CUMULATIVE a record of student mastery in the “world of math” is visible in their profiles want to know what they know and don’t know in math? it’s all there! excellent metrics for teachers, to track progress, and identify “gaps” in learning, to signal need for remediation if several students have same gap, small-group instruction IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK students know whether questions are right or wrong right away unlike pencil/paper assessment, which may be returned much later step-by-step hints, or instructional videos, are provided below every question SPIRALING students are doing work from number sense, measurement, geometry, algebra, and data & probability … all “strands” of math … on rotation → no need to plan a complicated spiraled curriculum, it’s all done for you. less planning for teachers, and more time to focus one-on-one attention to students teachers don’t have to say “textbook page 121, numbers 1-3, 5a-f anymore! math class starts … “OK everyone, open Khan, and pick up where you left off!” POINTS! COLOUR CODED! kids enjoy the motivation of the points they accumulate, badges, avatars, etc it’s easy to follow the steps, b/c videos AND exercises are colour coded for understanding FIND MISTAKES some exercises include “find the mistake”, and students have to go through and check the work to find mistakes … sometimes there are none! Very smart. Next step - kids make up their OWN questions, and solve them! easy to get parents on board → KA is helpful from pre-K through university … and life! if students learn to use KA well, it can be helpful to them today, high school, university, and more (mortgages, interest rates, history, etc) getting to know ONE TOOL WELL instead of introducing students to many different platforms, learning to use one, high quality, platform well could be beneficial to their learning NO cost, NO ads, mission “to provide a FREE, world class education, to anyone anywhere” the content is high quality - good descriptions, easy to listen to and follow the platform is well-funded, and not likely going anywhere anytime soon students can continue to use this for the rest of their lives PRIVACY is top notch.Continue reading

Great tool to support various different topics
I like this tool because it is a good support system for students that are looking to further their knowledge or practice a skill they may be struggling with. Even though I think this is a valuable resource, it may not work for all students. When the answer to a problem is shown, it is only explained in one way. Since students learn if different ways, this may not be a useful explanation for some. If they do not understand the explanation, this practice does not help them.Continue reading

Very helpful site for learning!
It is a great tool. The course videos structure is neat and easy to check. The quiz after each topic is helpful for students to test whether they truly understand the content.Continue reading
