Thanks for using Khan Academy! We’re excited to hear your feedback. This community is a place for THE MOST AMAZING LEARNERS in the world to hang out, meet each other and talk about the Khan Academy experience. We want all of you to experience awesomeness during your stay here, so please remember a few things while posting:

  • No bad language and no rude gestures, seriously.
  • Be awesome to each other.
  • Don’t post anything that isn’t yours to post.
  • Don’t let your evil self from a parallel universe post as you.
  • Check to see if someone has already posted an idea that is similar to yours. Add a comment to their idea rather than creating your own.
  • Don’t spam.
  • Keep each post to one specific new idea. Don’t try and talk about 2 or more ideas in one post.
  • When you want to make the platform better, be specific. We need to know where the problem happened, what you expected to happen and what went wrong. For more information on how to best post feedback, read this article.

Any posts found to be in violation of any of the above will be taken down, probably by grumpy math wizards.

General site discussions

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • allow certain math formats

      In the math section of khan academy, I got a problem wrong because I wrote, for example, 19 + (-16) and it was counted wrong

          • include languages you don't understand

            • Earning Community and Service points volunteering at Khan

              Can we earn community and service points for school volunteering for Khan? In our school, we need community and service hours in order to graduate. If Khan is a non-profit community and works to change education all over the world, is my volunteering considered making this world a better place? When I say volunteering, I mean uploading translations of Sal's videos in Korean. If this does count as C&S, what should I write in the "Who's supervising my work?" section? We need to fill in the supervisor's: name, email address and contact #. (Our school uses ManageBac)

                • I'm really confused

                  I just got here a few hours ago and I'm confused. When the site asked me to select a "mission" (or whatever) I selected math because that's what I wanted to start on. Can I move to science or am I stuck with only math on my Dashboard? I'm aware that there are videos, but I like the practice problems I've been doing with math.

                  If this is a simple problem to fix, I apologize. I'm still getting used to the site.

                    • Video watched status should be shown, like the small video symbol should turn green for full watch

                      Video watched status should be shown, like the small video symbol should turn green for full watch(full points taken).
                      For partial watch, you could show some other color maybe orange.

                      • Fix bugs.

                        When I finish a problem in mastery challenges in math, it says that I haven't finished the problem yet.

                        • Where do I find out the results of my reporting a mistake in a Math practice problem?

                          I was working through the "adding and subtracting rational expressions" practice section and I found the same type of error on two separate problems. I reported it in the report the mistake link at the bottom right corner of the screen and it gave me a reference number then it went away. How do I find out if the problem was even looked at by someone? and if anything is being done?

                            • After I finish something it says I didn't and I can't move on

                              I keep having to do the mastery of multiple ideas and I have already done it multiple times and it says that I have to keep doing that or just practice other things. I want to be able to hit the start button on other things. It happened with the algebra 1 section.
