TOO BAD! 7+3=? 4+2=? 9+4=? Kids who did poorly are shifted onto the more difficult concept without mastering the easy one.

Can we play Khan today? I've got over 40,000 points! This is so much fun... From basic addition... ...to trigonometry. I also have a host of real time and overview data available to me via the website Did I mention this was all free?
