Tip: Know It All

Watch. Practice.

Learn almost anything for free.

With a library of over 2,600 videos covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and 220 practice exercises, we're on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace. 

Sounds great, doesn't it? It is! It really is. And it's Khan Academy.

Basically, the site provides free video tutorials on just about everything. Quadratic equations (don't laugh, I had a dream the other night that I had to send someone over to Khan Academy because they just didn't understand quadratic equations), the electoral college, history, science, computer programming, pretty much everything.

If you're struggling to understand a concept, or have a child not quite "getting" something watch a video and see how it helps.

My kids have found Khan Academy to be a lifesaver when they're at a loss or have reached the end of their lessons and want to know more.

We were introduced to the site by some fellow home schoolers and it has turned, quickly, into a favorite resource of ours.

Check it out and let me know what you think.
