I thought this might be useful – “Khan Academy on a Stick”
May 20, 2012 1 Comment
While taking my Stanford Courses, I use Khan Academy constantly as a math refresher and to get my head around new ideas in calculus and statistics (specifically advanced inferential statistics & probability).
Salman Khan has done a wonderful thing for education. He’s been recognized on 60 minutes but that’s not nearly enough as his work and example might even change the world forever …
Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve become such a fan of Khan Academy that I now find whenever I’ve a bit of open time, I’ll view random math lectures on Khan Academy for fun. The only problem is that I need an online connection. Well, problem solved. You can download the entire math section and burn it to a “usb” drive. (I bought a 32g unit from BJ’s for around $30 bucks). This enables me to view a lecture on any of my devices including my linux or mac system, at any time.

I highly recommend this! It’s excellent … basically an advanced college level math education on a stick! My pocket professor. I’ve gotten so much personal benefit and enjoyment from Khan Academy, I’ve decided to donate as well!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I have…
