If you’d like to incorporate Khan Academy into your developmental math program, we recommend taking the following steps.
Select the best curriculum for your needs
If you want to cover an entire subject, such as Algebra II or Trigonometry, you can choose the corresponding mission.
Download our guide to missions as a PDF: Missions: Focusing students on meaningful content (higher education version).
If you want to focus on a smaller set of skills, or if you don’t see a mission that’s appropriate for your program, you may want to take the time to create a playlist. You can learn more about playlists here and download a sample playlist below for inspiration:
- Mapping of developmental math topics (docx) to Khan Academy content, created by the New England Board of Higher Education
- Jennifer Cornett of Lee University kindly shared her playlist for (developmental) intermediate algebra (xlsx).
- Lori Hodges of University of New Orleans generously offered her college algebra playlist (Google sheet).
Explore the tools available to you as a coach
By creating a coach account and adding your students to your Khan Academy roster, you can access their progress information and better support their learning. This article provides a great introduction to our coach tools.
You may also find that some of our resources for K-12 classrooms can be adapted to apply to your situation.
