What Is It and How Does It Work?

Khan Academy Practice is a website where you can learn Math. When you look at it, it kind of looks like a spider web. At the top of this web you have the simplest of all math, simple addition. Questions like two plus two. As you get questions right you move down the web and slowly do math topics that get progressively more challenging. All the way down to high school math!

Who Started it?

It was started by a man called Salman Kahn. Salman wanted to tutor his cousin Nadia and being really good with computers he decided to create a video and then post the video to Youtube. This worked really well because Nadia lived in a different city. After a few months Salman started receiving emails requesting more lessons and thanking Salman for his great videos. It seems that Nadia was not the only one watching Salman’s videos! Salman now has around 3300 videoswhere he teachers all things from Math to Science and History.

Salman Khan was recognized for his good work and was awarded money from Microsoft and Google to continue his non-profit work. This money was used to expand his list of videos and also to launch what we now know as Khan Academy Practice.

Khan Aacademy Practice is Salmans ultimate online tutorial tool. Giving students plenty of opportunity to practice, get hints and utilize his videos as and when the student needs them.
