Math is one of the core subjects that one has been exposed to since elementary school and will never truly get away from. Since math is so crucial to not only our academic lives but also our everyday lives, it is best to start absorbing all mathematical knowledge you may encounter because when it comes to math, practically everything learned will be relevant an will eventually be reused especially in your high school math classes. Here are some YouTube channels to get you through the math classes you will likely encounter while in high school.


PatrickJMT is a math teacher that began posting videos to provide his students with extra support outside of the classroom. The videos spread over the years, garnering Patrick over 400.000 grateful subscribers who cherish his videos for their simple and straight forward content. Patrick is able to provide viewers with short lessons on a wide range of math topics through the use of examples and a direct methodology that makes any math class conquerable.

MathBFF is a channel lead by Nancy an MIT graduate who gives step-by-step instruction on tackling a variety of math topics. Nancy begins her videos by explaining the concept behind a specific topic then dives into examples on how to solve particular problems in the various ways they may appear. Her videos are well organized and easy to follow and are typically 10-20 minutes long, making them great for refreshers on specific topics.

Professor Leonard

Professor Leonard is a math professor (shocker) who posts videos of his actual in class lectures. Seriously, it’s like you’re in class and everything. Since the videos are lectures, they do run long at about 1-2 hours, but you within the first 30 minutes, he provides you with a solid amount of explanations and examples so you can take on the topic without spending what feels like a whole other class period learning math. his videos are very thorough and he breaks concepts down in a way that allows you to find exactly what area gave you trouble.

Recommended for: Pre- ALgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre- Calculus, Calculus, and Statistics

yaymath is a channel by Robert Adhoot, a teacher who also films his in class lessons. Mr. Adhoot is a firm believer in making math a fun topic that inspires children with a desire to learn rather than causing intimidation and anxiety and thus, yaymath was created. In the videos, Mr. Adhoot is often seen cracking jokes and genuinely enjoying the time he spends teaching his students in 10-20 minute long videos that aim to create fundamental understandings of different math concepts. yaymath is an organization with a mission to help people succeed especially in their academic life so that they no longer view math as an frightening obstacle that they let get in the way of their dreams. yaymath has a mission to foster an understanding of math through humor and concise instruction to help people conquer the often intimidating beast that is math. Recommended for: Algebra 1, Geometry, Intro to Trigonometry, Algebra 2, and Statistics

As math is generally a large source of intimidation and fear for many students, I genuinely hope that these videos are of use to you all and make your math class atleast the least bit more tolerable. No matter what your math struggle is or how bad your grade may be now, you are more than capable of taking the class by storm and finding success! Good luck.

      Hi! I love Khan Academy as much as the next person but I figured most people already knew about it so I wanted to share some lesser known channels that could also be helpful 🙂
