  1. Is it possible to transfer detailed SAT scores from an official administration into Khan Academy in a similar manner to how a PSAT score can be transferred? In a similar vein, is it possible to transfer another PSAT score from an official administration into Khan Academy after a previous score has already been transferred in? TIA!
  2. I posted a question about a year ago about using Khan as a core curriculum along with Zacarro Algebra Problem Solving for pre-algebra. Here I am a year later with a similar question. My daughter used the above combo for pre algebra last year in 7th grade. It seemed to be working well, other than there not being detailed enough solutions in the Zacarro book, until half way through the year when she panicked that Khan might not be covering everything she needed to know. Since there wasn't a preset lesson each day, she didn't have confidence that she was doing enough. We jumped ship and purchased Saxon algebra 1/2. She did only tests until she came upon things she was uncertain about and then did the lessons to correspond to those topics. Neither of us liked Saxon though, and towards the end of the year, I purchased VideoText Algebra. They suggest you always start with the pre algebra portion and cover all of their material to complete all the way through algebra 2. She is nearly through Module A, which is roughly equivalent to pre algebra and wants to find something else to stick with through high school. The explanations don't make as much sense to her as Khan, which worries her for what it will be like when she reaches more difficult material. And the many pieces to the curriculum make it hard for her to face every day. She is begging to go back to Khan Academy. She enjoys the videos in Khan and the way things are presented. She likes puzzling through the problems and using the hints and videos when necessary. She even enjoys watching more advanced topics for fun. She just plain likes Khan even though she doesn't like computers or videos that much in general. The general consensus around here though seems to be that Khan alone is not enough. Is there an inexpensive resource we could put with it to add problems, and more particularly to have some sort of assessment so she can be certain she thoroughly understands each topic before moving on? Unfortunately I am no help since I have forgotten over the years all the algebra knowledge I once possessed. She needs to be fairly independent. Her preference would to have Khan be her core with the other resource as the supplement rather than plugging through a textbook and using Khan for the video explanations. Is this possible? I don't want her to be lacking in anything, but I need to find something that works for her that is inexpensive, but can be used mostly independently. I had hoped Videotext would be the answer for us. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

  4. 1. Do you use it as a stand alone program or as a supplement? 2. Pros and cons 3. How do you implement it/use it day-to-day Any information you can provide would be helpful. :001_smile: In case it would influence your advice at all, I have a 5th grader and 2nd grader currently. We are in our second year of using Singapore math. They are both pretty mathy, especially my oldest. ETA: I am asking about the math portion.
  5. Hi~ I'm needing recommendations for a trigonometry text to go along w/ my son's foray into trigonometry via Khan Academy. Any suggestions? Also, we are needing a condensed American History study for his last year. Sonlight is too expensive (even used) right now, though we both love it. He has done a couple of Notgrass curriculums, but would like to steer clear of them for this history course, if at all possible. Any words of wisdom from those who have been there and done that? Thank you, Desiree
  6. I'm just not getting the "goals" section. This is the only way I see to assign work. We've just been going by the recommendations, but it is going in directions we aren't ready for yet. Any ideas?
  7. I just checked out Khan to help my DS out, but when I tried to get him an account it says he's too young--under 13. How is everyone working around this? Is there something I'm missing to log my kids in so they can keep track?
  8. I'm an extremely structured and organized type. Any tips as to how to best implement the lessons in Khan Academy? How do you use it with your dc? Do you go by one lesson per day? How do you choose which subjects? The huge selection is quite overwhelming. Any tips or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  9. My dd will do chemistry this summer in order to move into A&P for 11th grade and take Advanced Chem in 12th. She likes the layout of Apologia and the wordiness - she's a reader. I am looking for a "schedule" of sorts to line it up with Khan Academy. Anyone else done this? Connie
  10. Would it be possible to use Khan Academy as a complete math course? I'm asking primarily for my dd (15) who will be in 11th grade next year. She has used Chalkdust since pre-Algebra, is math minded, and does well with it. She really enjoys Khan Academy though and asked about using it as a stand alone as she thinks she would progress more quickly. (She often understands the concepts quickly enough that watching the Chalkdust videos isn't all that engaging for her.) I'd still have her use the Chalkdust test prep course. Goal-wise, her top interest is ballet and her second interest is math. Science, bacteria primarily, are her third area of interst. Clearly, her math skills need to be strong. I have other children who will be in Algebra I and Basic Math next year. I might have them start using Khan as a supplement for now.
  11. Hi, Can someone tell me how this works? I would like to utilize this website for extra help or to have the kids watch something if they get stuck w/ their math etc.. Do you have to sign up, do you have to have a google account? I just have a yahoo. Just curious as to how it works. Thanks! Kim
  12. Khan Academy Badge Program I always thought Khan Acadamy was just videos to go to when you didn't understand something. They have all kinds of practice problems too. Kids can earn virtual badges by completing different levels. My son who has completed Singapore 6B and two books of LOF and is on LOF Pre-ALgebra has found it very helpful. We've uncovered some holes in his learning (negative numbers, division of decimals) and it's making him be more conscientious of accuracy. He also spent two hours of free time doing math to earn the Double Power Hour badge (you have to do 180 problems correctly and watch 30 minutes of video in 2 hours). Right now both of my kids are working on Master of Arithmetic. My son has gotten to the Journeyman Level and is working towards Artisan. My daughter has gotten Apprentice and is working on Journeyman. I think it's a great tool for extra practice for Singapore and Life of Fred users!
  13. I read on the Khan Academy website that students who log in start at basic arithmetic and work from there. While I think that's great, I'd like to have my student work at a more advanced level to practice the more recent material NOW. First, will it allow that; and second, will it still "count" that more advanced work if the more basic exercises haven't been worked yet? Thanks for any input. ETA: I realize my student could work at any level we chose without logging in, but I want to be able to use their tracking feature to show dh, and logging in is required for that.
  14. Khan Academy is in the news today. New York Times In the article it mentions his "knowledge map" which gives exercises leading step by step to linear algebra... Has anyone used it? and gotten there? anything to know about it... Joan
  15. We are just starting HSing and our son is in 4th grade. We are doing Calvert. I'd like to give DS more practice in multiplying two digit numbers and in long division. They covered this last year in 3rd PS, but his attention/working memory issues make it difficult for him to remember the steps. He is otherwise very, very bright and has placed high in math tests (before long division!). I was thinking practice would help. Have seen a lot on Khan Academy, but I was not clear when I got there how to get started with a 4th grader. What are videos and what are practice areas, and how to you decide where to start? Any help would be much appreciated. Amy
  16. My son, 7, is gifted in math and I want to supplement his basic math education he gets at school by using videos and exercises from the Khan Academy. The only computers I have are macs - but I can't get the exercises to load. Is this a hardware issue? Do I need a Windows-based, PC machine to use the Khan Academy online?
  17. Ds just finished Saxon 7/6 and is going into 8/7 in the fall. I myself had been a good math-student...until I decided half-way through high-school that I could get by doing the strict minimum:tongue_smilie:. It worked out okay for me, but I now feel absoluty unequipped to teach without seriously brushing up my skills! Where should I start? Simply reading ds' Saxon-lessons ahead of him? Or is there a shortcut? (I am not really THAT unprepared, after all:D). Saxon 8/7 would be easy, that's sure, on the other hand I don't want to miss the train... Thanks for your help!
  18. Khan Academy on Youtube KhanAcademy.org I was watching a bunch of youtube videos on Singapore math when I landed on his site. He's amazing, imho. I could have used something like this *free* service when I was in high school and college. That is all. :001_smile:
  19. Khan Academy !!!FREE FREE FREE!!! It covers every level of math including SAT prep from the official guide. God Bless, Ava Also, Check out the free math program. I just found this yesterday and am really impressed with this.
