I was looking online for some ideas to teach Algebra.  I stumbled on these great videos all done by a man named Salman Kahn.  In each video, he picks one concept and then walks the viewer through it step-by-step.

It turns out that Salman Kahn had a younger cousin who needed a bit of long distance math tutoring.  From that small start, he has created the Khan Academy with thousands of YouTube videos explaining math concepts plus a myriad of other topics in short 10 – 20 minute chunks.

Read the inspirational story of Salman Kahn (under the FAQ tab), the man behind all the educational videos.  His ambition is to provide a world-class university level education to the world for free.   Khan Academy provides lectures similar to online universities from some of the best colleges out there.  His work is really a great contribution of knowledge to everyone in the world.

On his home page, he has over 70 video explaining the Algebra I concepts in an organized list.  Directly below it are another 180 videos working Algebra I problems with step-by-step explanations.

It’s an entire video Algebra I curriculum, entirely free!  If you explore the tabs and rest of the page, you’ll find videos on tons of other topics as well.

After my son finishes his Math 7 curriculum in the next month or so, he’s planning on working his way through the Algebra I videos.  We’ll post an update about how it goes.

Has anyone else used the Kahn Academy videos?  How did they work for you and which ones did you like the best?

    What we do is provide you with insulation that’s
    quick and easy to use – and saves your hard earned money on heating and cooling bills.
    Still, there’s a catch to this: regular people can’t install this type
    of insulation by themselves, and professional service is frequently needed.

    New households that are being built today are pursuing very strict
    energy efficiency standards.

    Misty –
    I am loving this website! We’ve watched a lot of videos and I’ve even used it for my Physical Science class I’m teaching (Newton’s Laws). Thanks for the tip.

    Also Jonah really is liking the scratch website. 😀

    I loved the videos of Grandma coming to visit — too cute, with Jacob’s face and all…

    Hey, also, a couple of families are getting together on Monday January 31 10-12 at Pump It Up Party in Canton (Michigan Ave and Canton Center Rd.) to bounce for a couple hours. We’ve got cabin fever BAAAAD. $7 per kid….maybe we’ll see you there?

    Hope all is well.
