Khan Academy is so cool

Our kids have 2 Math programs they use: Miquon and Khan.  I wrote an earlier post on why we love Miquon and today I wanted to share the coolest of Khan.

Our kids spend 3-5 days a week on Khan, they do all the Mastery Challenges for that day (this is where they can move up to Mastery in each category and it challenges what they know).  Once they complete those (usually 2-3 challenges), they do 1-2 practice categories.  That’s it then they log off 🙂

What the Dashboard looks like:

Here are detailed reports of what they have been working on:

I love how Khan emails me each week with a mini overview of what they have been doing.

You get points each time you complete a set of problems, my kids LOVE seeing their points go up. You also get Badges based on a number of different things, so it’s fun to see what ones they have gotten.

I would HIGHLY recommend Khan Academy for anyone, from Kindergarten to college.  It works great, and is like a personal tutor with videos and a forum.

Enjoy!
