Anybody Can Learn
Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra. Code.org organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign which has engaged 10% of all students in the world, and provides the leading curriculum for K-12 computer science in the largest school districts in the United States. Code.org is supported by generous donors including Microsoft, Facebook, the Infosys Foundation, Google, Omidyar Network, and many more.
Learn for free about math, art, computer programming, economics, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, finance, history, and more. Learn for free. For everyone. Forever. There’s only one thing you need to know: You can learn anything.
A personalized learning resource for all ages
Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We’ve also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.
The 7 Principles of Natural Math:
MAKE your own math. When you encounter problems and patterns, change them until you like them, and pose some of your own. Make what is useful, beautiful, or fun – for you!
OPENNESS means you can find, change, and share your math. Open math is like a recipe, a folk tale, or an internet meme: diverse people remix it in diverse ways.
ABUNDANCE is having a lot of math to choose from. Make and find an abundance of examples, models, and learning tools until you feel there is plenty.
YES, AND is an invitation to improvise. Treat whatever you and others make or say as a prompt, not a mistake. Things don’t work until you make them work. Together, we can transform anything into math that makes sense.
ADVENTURE in the strange human-made world of math, and you will encounter thrills, surprises, and even the occasional fright. Be the hero of your journey, and join others to explore and push the boundaries of the ever-expanding math universe.
EASY COMPLEXITY is how a five-year-old learns calculus. Tell stories, make art, and find analogies that make your math friendly. Gently grow your happy familiarity with complex ideas. We make math easy enough for open play and complex enough for advanced mastery.
BRIDGES connect and unite. Link math ideas to one another, math to other human endeavors, and people to math-rich communities. Connections help us to make sense of math, and to use math to make sense of life.
