Does anyone have any good online resources or book/video suggestions for learning math? I'm not looking for ones for any specific concepts, because I need to sort of reteach myself most things from probably Grade 5 or 6 and up. :oops:

I've been using Khan Academy, but having different things to look at and learn from is helpful for me.

I hope something here might help.

Let me know if there's a specific skill you don't understand.

I used to like "Ask Doctor Math"
but you need the Wayback Machine to get to it now

I'm glad to see that these resources exist for people who want to learn gradeschool-level math.

On YouTube there are lots and lots of excellent videos on college-level math, e.g. calculus, but not so many on gradeschool math, as far as I can tell.

YouTube is an excellent resource for overviews of advanced mathematical concepts.

Textbooks and YouTube videos. For Calculus, Stewart's Calculus (including both single variable and multivariable) would do just fine. Enjoy!

I honestly forgot I made this thread until now, oops. :oops: I'd like to thank everyone for their suggestions, I'm going to look over them now that I've seen them. I really appreciate the help.

your library may have text books and that kind of stuff for free.
Barnes and Noble sells workbooks and text books / test prep-books. The one near me has a whole section dedicated to it.
There is also a Lakeshore Learning store near me - they are the "Teacher store" kind of store - they are a national chain (I live in USA). They have workbooks, and manipulatives, and anything a teacher could want to buy. It is a bit pricey but I buy a few things at a time for supplementing my kids education. Kind of like extra home schooling on top of regular school.
I had a lot of trouble with math and spelling and stuff in school, so I am always looking for things that help. Some people are just "different learners" - you might be very very smart but learn differently from the way things are taught in school.

What are your strengths? What do you really enjoy doing? you can build on those things.
I like computers and visual tactile learning. I also learn by reading. Numbers get mixed up in my head and so do letters to things like the multiplication tables and spelling I am awful at - but geometry was easy for me and I was good at other higher math. I "cheat" by using high level tricks to make the hard "easy" math work better for me. I know hundreds of tricks.

brilliant.org - "Learn To Think" -- "hands-on, interactive lessons" in math and science, including "Foundational Math," for "ages 10 to 110." As far as I can tell, it includes both some free lessons and then paid lessons.

I recommend, from personal experience, that you ind the following books in your free library or buy or rent on-line:
(If your library does not have the books you can write a letter or fill out a form asking them to get these books - Libraries are always interested in buying new books that are valuable to the library patrons).

Life of Fred books:

https://www.amazon.com/life-fred/s?k=life+of+fred

http://www.lifeoffred.com/

https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Stanley+F.+S ... nb_sb_noss

My family has many of these books and my kids really love them. Sometimes I will just pick one up and read it because it is so much fun (and I like some kinds of math, like Geometry, a lot).
They are really good books.

Some YouTube channels containing highly intuitive, visually-oriented introductions to various college-level and advanced math concepts:

- Mathologer
- 3Blue1Brown (see also his website Animated math)

Not just for math in particular, but a general online educational resource, college level, offering online degrees: edX.
