In need of a quick math refresher, or maybe looking to learn something for the first time? PatrickJMT.com (the JMT standing for Just Math Tutorials) is a great place to go! This website contains hundreds of video math tutorials covering nine topic areas: algebra, arithmetic, calculus, differential equations, discrete math, linear algebra, probability and statistics, trigonometry, and miscellaneous. Each video is short (approximately 5–10 minutes) and consists of Patrick narrating problem solving shown on a white board. Having tutored and taught university mathematics, Patrick (no last name is given) is very skilled at breaking problems down and explaining the steps as he progresses through the example problems. Users can browse videos by topic/title, or they can search the collection by keyword. Regardless of your math experience, there is a wealth of information to be tapped on this website.
