If you like Khan Academy, check out www.Educator.com. It looks to be better organized and have better videos than Khan.

I would also recommend MathTutorDVD.com which has more than just maths to learn (Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, programming, etc.) and is very in-depth.

I also recommend The Great Courses by the Teaching Company for something more like a survey (except many of the math courses are pretty in-depth as well). The Great Courses have tons and tons of different topics out there (e.g. religion, philosophy, history, business, science/maths, and it goes on and on). Those would be more suited to most people not trying to pursue a formal education and I guarantee you will love learning whatever you choose.

The MIT lectures out there are okay too but it doesn't look like it's very good to learn from, imo and there's also assorted individual videos out there on youtube but educator.com (and Math Tutor DVD) make it work the best by having it organized and in-depth.

What other materials do you guys use? Basically my goal is to teach myself enough Math and Physics to go back to school (graduated w/ a B.S. in Finance in 2006) for a Physics (and maybe math) undergraduate degree and breeze through Calculus III, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Physics I & II... as much as I can learn basically. I have credit through Calculus II and Chemistry II from my time at University and I've re-learned all that maths recently on my own as well as reading a ton of popular Physics books so I've been continually learning Physics (although my knowledge is about a mile wide and an inch deep).

Hopefully, in the not distance future, some University will offer an online math degree where I just go to a location to take the tests to prove I know the stuff and I will be able to get an undergrad degree studying all from home so I can avoid all the costs associated with brick & mortar University.

It looks like you need a subscription to access most of the videos there. Khan explains stuff really good. I didn't do physics on MIT courseware but most of the lectures on other courses I did are pretty good. Just make sure to to do problems until you understand it.

the problem with kahn academy for what i'm trying to learn, math, is that it doesn't cover all the topics you would find in a textbook or class. educator seems to have it all. i don't have a subscription but i'm going to try to find a torrent. that's how i got all the math tutor dvd's

Use MIT for most of your learning and use khan academy to supplement that. What don't you like about MIT?
