Best way to Prep for the Math on the SAT exam:
Highlighted by a recent New York Times article, there is a growing Internet sensation called the “Kahn Academy” that provides students with a fantastic mathematical resource. Mr. Kahn has uploaded thousands of YouTube videos spanning just about every topic in math, from elementary addition to college level Calculus. He has in fact published over 2700 videos to date!
In this video, http://youtu.be/gM95HHI4gLk, Mr. Kahn explains the origins of this video project and why he chose to make them free to everyone. The Kahn academy videos are great tools for students struggling to understand specific mathematical concepts, and being YouTube videos, the student can watch them as many times as he or she needs. But perhaps the greatest benefits of these videos can be seen by students preparing for the SAT’s. On his website, www.kaknacademy.org, Mr. Kahn vows to work through every problem in the College Board’s Official SAT Study Guide, which means that students, having taken and graded practice tests on their own, can use these videos to understand any problems they got wrong or needed review on. The Kahn Academy is thus a fantastic and free way for students to master SAT math!
