What LDS-NHA Friends Have to Say About Khan Academy

We use Khan Academy for math, although the little ones just need simple math games that can be done with sidewalk chalk, a handful of pennies and nickles and a handerchief.

Khan academy also has some cool tangential stuff like the ways they do long multiplication and division in other cultures. -juanita

Khan Academy is my go-to for math. My kids love it, too (ages 11, 9, and 5). -Stephanie

My daughter struggled with math as well. It was a constant battle. We started using Khan Academy last year, and WOW, what a difference. - Kacie
