Everyone knows the videos, but now Khan Academy has released practice

software available for free to any teacher, any class, any student, any parent, anyone!

This is just another way to extend learning and breakdown your classroom walls. Give
your students & parents the ability to learn, review, and practice 24/7 at the pace that
works for them.

Read below to see the information from www.khanacademy.org
From Khan Academy:

Watch. Practice. Learn almost anything—for free.

What started out as Sal making a few algebra videos for his cousins has grown to over 2,100 videos and 100 self-paced exercises and
assessments coveringeverything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history.

A world of exercises, with help along the way

Practice math at your own pace with our adaptive assessment exercises. You can start at 1+1 and work your way into calculus or jump
right into whatever topic needs some brushing up.Each problem is randomly generated, so you never run out of practice material.
If you need a hint, every single problem can be broken down, step-by-step, with one click. If you need more help, you can always
watch a related video.

Here is the best part for teachers:

Your classroom data...finally

Teachers and coaches can access all of their students' data. You can get a summary of class performance as a whole or dive into a
particular student's profile to figure out exactly which topics are problematic. The class profile lets coaches glance at their dashboard
and quickly figure out how to best spend their time teaching.We've put a lot of energy into making sure that the Khan Academy empowers
teachers by giving them access to the data they should've had for years. You'll know instantly if a student is struggling in multiplying
fractions...or if she hit a streak and is now far ahead of the class.
