How I Use It
I used Khan in my math lab class which is a math study hall and remediation class. The students were able to start with simple number operation skills and they go up from there. I was able to keep track of both progress and activity time.
My Take
I think Khan Academy is a great addition to any math class! Khan allows your students to identify skills they are lacking and in a fun and different way helps students improve those skills. As educators it nice to have a resource on how another teacher teaches topics. With the videos being on YouTube it makes it hard if not impossible to view the videos.
