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 covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history. Visit Khan Academy to learn more! (PLEASE NOTE: Our mathematics team does NOT endorse all of the Khan Academy mathematics videos as some do not contain sound mathematical practices. We are simply providing the link as a free resource for the public to view).

Math Resources for Tutoring Support
A series of excellent definitions and explanations for early and upper elementary mathematics (Math on Call, Math at Hand). These books do cost a few dollars, but you can buy them in bulk. Perhaps PTO groups could sponsor the sale of these at parent meetings, etc. They are nice for students, parents and teachers!
A GREAT NEW RESOURCE FOR MATHEMATICS TEACHERS AND STUDENTS!
A project of the University of Cambridge in the UK. NRICH is a team of qualified teachers who are also practitioners in RICH mathematical thinking. This unique blend means that NRICH is ideally placed to offer advice and support to both teachers and learners of mathematics. NRICH aims to:
- Enrich the experience of the mathematics curriculum for all learners
- Offer challenging and engaging activities
- Develop mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills
- Show rich mathematics in meaningful contexts
- Work in partnership with teachers, schools and other educational settings
For teachers of mathematics:
There are FREE enrichment materials (Problems, Articles and Games) that really can help to inspire and engage learners and embed RICH tasks into everyday practice. There is on-line support at all levels. For those learning mathematics:
- There are FREE and interesting mathematical games, problems and articles.
- Students can share solutions to mathematical problems.
- Mathematicians are available and can help solve problems - just 'Ask NRICH'!
It's a safe online space where mathematics students can talk to others with similar interests. A note for parents:
NRICH is a joint project between the Faculties of Mathematics and Education at The University of Cambridge UK. The Rich Resource Bank has been designed to meet the needs of learners from ages 5 to 19. The resources are tested and proven and do make a difference.
