Khan Academy

Khan Academy has a library of over 2,700 videos covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and 240 practice exercises.  Each video is about 10 minutes long.  We’ve linked each of the skills we have taught this year to video tutorials from Khan (see below).  You can use these videos to achieve mastery in key subjects. 

How to use Khan Academy

  • Step 1:  Use your Google or Facebook account to sign in and get started right now. Signing in gives you the ability to track your own progress and earn points and badges.  If you don't have an account with either of those sites, you can sign up for a Google or Facebook account to get started.
  • Step 2:  Identify the skill(s) you wish to start with.  We’ve hyperlinked our Nashville Prep Internal Standards below with key videos that will help you strengthen any areas of weakness that your child may demonstrate.  These are the same standards that show up on the report card.  You should read the Trimester 1 report card and identify any areas for which your child demonstrates need (starting with any skills under 80% mastery). 
  • Step 3:  Practice the skill until you’ve achieved mastery. Every skill has practice exercises associated with it.  Your child will demonstrate mastery by answering 10 questions in a row correctly.  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.  Once your child has achieved mastery, they should move on to the next skill that they’ve struggled with.     See below for photo indicating how you can find the practice problems.
