For summer my math teacher made us use this over summer vacation. I liked it at first due to how little work he assigned us. I got stuck on a few questions so I clicked on a video. The video made no sense and just confused me more. On top of that I you only have one more question to answer and you get it wrong you have to restart from the beginning. Overall, it was a waist of my summer vacation because I ha to do just one assignment for over an hour almost ever time. It was very frustrating.
It confuses me and my other classmates more then we already are. My teacher says it’s stiuposed to help and if you watch the birdies sometimes it does but most of the time it just makes you more confused. I seriously spend hours apon hours on this website trying to get 100% it at least pass the lesson but it takes like 1 hour just to get one lesson done. Don’t put your kids threw it. It’s now worth it.

Do not use this app, it is a waste of time and money, DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS USE THIS, it causes more problems than it is worth and makes them feel even worth about their lives and if you want them to be successful and happy in their grade, again, DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS USE THIS APP!
I'm a whiz kid, but everybody sometimes gets bad grades, like me.
Khan Academy helped me improve my schoolwork, and help me with things for higher grade levels. The videos are in depth, but very clear. Sal Khan had a very good mission, and that led to an even better website.
I love this site! They have math from kindergarden to highschool, but all the other subjects like biology and astronomy are like grade four and up. I learned a lot from there and its totally free so go check it out!
Khan academy started a new update, and, they tell you to choose what grade you are in and what subjects to choose, so they can organize your dashboard. I chose about 15 topics in Math, Science and Test prep. When i clicked continue the screen of the website said they wont let me continue with 15 topics that i chose or basically anything.
The encouragement is very useful, and helped me so much on my math. I've recieved A+ on my report cards all througout since 3rd grade. It's very useful in a lot of subjects that schools don't even teach anymore! I definetly reccomend using this.
It is a very interesting website. It gives a lot of detail but overall its just general things. The site its self is good till fourth grade after that its just general things every normal person would know. The only thing that is good or decent on this website is the computer programming. It gives more detail then any other thing there is on the site. If i were to recommend a learning site to a younger kid, i would maybe recommend this site but if you get them hooked on this site you will not get anywhere after a while.

Not a good place for students!
Not a good website to learn on!!! Its great how they are non-profit, however it is extremely frustrating. I am a 4.0 student in an advanced math class and a can tell you from experience that this website is not helpful. I'm not just saying this to get out of school work or just to rant, I am trying to give you helpful advice. If you want to help your students or kids, use some other method rather than khan.

The answers /questions are all wrong!!!!!!!!!!
When Im doing test :for example,geometry: it will say one word and mean a completely diffrent word,and when im doing math ill type in the answer and it says its wrong then i googled the answer and it was right!! I even asked my ma about the question. ..if you fix those ill give you a better review,until then :)

Can be cruel/crippling
It is a good site for leaning math and such, but if you miss one question on a mastery challenge and can be quite cruel about the punishment. (7th grade math in particular) Another thing if you miss so much as one question on a mastery challenge you are down 5% WHICH IS HUGE

bad for SAT prep
I have been using khan academy for SAT prep and it has not helped. Parents think it helps but in reality it hasn't affected my scores and has turned into a home wrecker when my parents tell me to do it but they will not listen to me when I tell them it does not help.
