I.C.E. Recommended Summer Math Work on Khan Academy
How to Sign Up and Begin Working:
1. Go to www.KhanAcademy.org and click “Log In” in the upper right corner
2. Log in with Google (see option a below) or create a Khan Academy Account (see option b below). DO NOT LOG IN WITH Facebook!
a. To Log in with a Google (gmail) account, click the “sign in with Google” and sign in with your Gmail and Password.
b. To create a Khan Academy Account (preferred), follow these steps: click: “Create New Account” then “sign up using email”. Enter your first and last name, email, and birthday, then click: “Sign up.” Follow the directions in the email sent to your account.
3. Click on "subjects" and choose "math" from the dropdown menu. Then you can find your appropriate strand of math in a grade level or you can click on the HS categories of Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-calculus, Linear Algebra or Trigonometry to find math topics.
4. Once you choose a grade level or HS math strand (it may ask you to answer some questions first but you can skip them), you can click the button located in the upper right portion of the browser that says "view full list of geometry content” (or the appropriate math strand for you).
5. You can find many of the suggested topics this way.
