Khan Academy

I’m going to let you fellow stoners in on one of the greatest things since Pineapple Express: www.khanacademy.com. This is your one stop shop for learning anything math or science related. I kid you not when I say that this man can teach you a semester’s worth of calculus in an hours worth of free online videos documenting different solutions for a huge array of problems. He was recently cited by Bill Gates of Microsoft as one of the innovators of the future.

His simple approach on each topic provides a professionally abridged version in which he teaches what he believes works best, while touching on every obscure formula you could possibly come across in class. And believe me when I say this, Salman Khan is a brilliant teacher. His ability to draw you into the learning process and allow you to come out with so much knowledge on the other side is really remarkable.

From a stoner’s point of view, his voice is enrapturing. I can’t say what it is but there’s a 60’s sportscaster’s captivating voice that delivers each video in a concise and easily understandable manner. The ease with which you can watch a video and simply let the information wash over you is incredible.

Whether you’re someone who is interested in learning something in a variety of mathematical and scientific disciplines, or a student looking to cram before a last minute test, Khan Academy will help you achieve at levels you had thought impossible.
