Are you or is someone you know in the depths of studying for exams right now? Khan Academy is here to help. We’ve put together some new quizzes just in time for finals:
These quizzes can help you master what you need to know for the big day. After taking each quiz, you’ll see how you did and get a personalized list of helpful videos. They’re perfect for tackling tough concepts or just getting a little extra practice.
Remember, You Can Learn Anything!

At Khan Academy, we know how important computer science and computer programming are - in fact, the Khan Academy website wouldn’t exist if Sal didn’t know how to code! That’s why we participate in Code.org’s Hour of Code campaign every year during Computer Science Education Week - we want to make sure every student gets to learn the basics of coding.
From December 7 to 13, millions of students around the world will be learning to code - in classrooms, in after-school clubs, and with parents at home. We invite you to join the #HourOfCode movement by learning to code here on Khan Academy, picking from one of our three tutorials:
- Drag-and-drop: block-based coding for those with less typing experience or on tablet devices (ages 8+).
- Typing: keyboard-based coding (ages 10+).
Hour of Webpages: Learn to make your own webpages using the basics of HTML and CSS (ages 10+).
Hour of Databases: Learn the fundamentals of databases using SQL to create tables with data and query the data (ages 12+).
We hope you’ll join us in celebrating Computer Science Education Week and spend an hour on Khan Academy learning to code!

Today we’re happy to announce that learners around the world can now access Khan Academy resources in Hindi! If you speak Hindi, you can learn math through our video lessons and practice problems mapped to India’s NCERT curriculum.
Wherever you are - Mumbai, Jaipur, a village in Haryana, or anywhere else around the globe - we believe you deserve the opportunity to learn at your own pace and in your own language.
Khan Academy in Hindi brings us one step closer to our mission of a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere, and we thank our friends at Central Square Foundation for helping to make this possible. We hope you enjoy Khan Academy in Hindi!

Last spring, we piloted a new kind of math challenge called LearnStorm here in our own backyard, the San Francisco Bay Area. LearnStorm was designed to help students learn how to learn, and it was a runaway success. Over 70,000 students of all ability levels participated, and we were flooded with stories about students who began to love math for the first time.
Now LearnStorm is back for round two, and it’s bigger and better than ever! We’re excited to announce that - in addition to the Bay Area - LearnStorm is also coming to Idaho, the Greater Chicago Area, and all of Ireland! Signups are now open, and the challenge starts January 29.
