Math Teaching Videos for the GED

Florida Literacy Council has compiled a collection of freely available videos from YouTube that cover math subject areas generally included on the GED. These video mini-lessons will take you through subjects on the test from the basics like fractions, decimals, and percents to more advanced subjects like solving equations, simplifying polynomial expressions, deconstructing word problems, and graphing.

This site has over 2,400 short teaching videos on a variety of topics in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, developmental math, etc. Khan Academy was originally designed for math students, but has expanded to include a wide variety of subjects.
