And I have to say that Khan Academy is NOT just for kids! I retired from almost 50 years in computers, after getting my degree in Math. It is amazing what one loses if it isn't continually used, and it is fun to go back to KA just to refresh what I learned, and lost, all these years ago.

I believe that Khan started with Mathematics, but I have found it fun to go back and read about Economics, Chemistry and this recent financial crash. Just the thing to keep a mind young!
