Chemistry, Biology, Psychology! Oh My!

This summer Khan Academy launched a competition to find a group of talented Science content creators and we are happy to now have 15 new content creators. This team has been busy making tutorials on topics such as Organ Systems, Chemical Processes, and Behavior. We have now posted over 200 questions and 150 video lessons.

In the coming year, you will see more Science content and by Fall 2014 we will have covered all of the new 2015 MCAT topics to help students preparing for the exam. We will also be adding this content to our Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Sociology, and Psychology tutorials but students of these subjects should feel free to take a peek now.

Take a look at one of the lesson on Metabolism here:

New Calculus Course coming Fall 2014

For years now we have been getting requests to offer a complete Calculus course on Khan Academy. In an effort to create a course of the highest quality by Fall 2014, Khan Academy is partnering with Phillips Academy Andover. We are working with Andover’s math department (30 teachers) to develop rigorous adaptive exercises appropriate for a first-year course in Calculus. We just started adding questions to our site and will continuously add content throughout the year. Read more about the partnership here.

Khan Academy en Español

Khan Academy just launched our Spanish website!

There are approximately 6 billion non-English speakers in the world. In order to provide free resources to anyone in the world, we have spent the past year making it possible for our entire website experience to be translated into any written world language.

By launching the Spanish version of the website, we are now providing access to half a billion Spanish speakers around the world. In the coming months and years we will translate our website into other languages.

Spanish-speaking learners can now:

1. Grow with our personalized math experience

Using the new learning dashboard (launched in August), learners receive personalized recommendations on what to work on next, have access to over 100,000 math practice problems, and can track their progress.

2. Explore tutorials in other topics

Our tutorials cover a range of subject areas, including physics, chemistry, biology, art history and more. These tutorials are currently being translated into Spanish.

3. Learn with a mentor

Learners can sign up a parent, mentor, or teacher to help guide their path. These coaches can access real-time dashboards to identify where learners are and where they need help.

 

If you are a registered user and want to change your language to Spanish, just select “Español” as your preferred language at the bottom of the homepage. Please note that the Spanish website is a work in progress. As Khan Academy creates new content in English (which we do on a daily basis), translators will be working to translate this content to Spanish.

 

Help us spread the word! Share our Spanish website with Spanish-speaking individuals or educational organizations.
