Comments on Khan Academy in 2021

‘Khan Academy is one of my favorite tools for extra studying and practice in math class. It has lessons, videos, and practice questions students can use to help study. The teacher can use this as well to teach as the main source if it is approved of course. My favorite part of the practice questions is that it has hints tied to them so students can get gradual reminders of what to do if they forget, without giving the whole answer away. I use this as extra practice in my class.” Darren Vance, Middle School Math teacher, USA
