Not sure if this is the place for it, but there are similar posts for podcasts and blogs, so I'll post this one. I'd be interested in seeing a list of online resources for mathematics learning.

As someone doing a non-maths degree in college I'd be interested in finding some resources for learning more maths online, most resources I know of tend to either assume a working knowledge of maths beyond secondary school level, or only provide a brief summary of the topic at hand.

I'll start off by posting MIT Open Courseware, which is a large collection of lecture notes, assignments and multimedia for the MIT mathematics courses, although in many places it's quite incomplete.

  • $\begingroup$ Mathematics Educators is another place to ask. They're happy to have questions about learning, not just teaching. (I think they might also consider it too general though.) $\endgroup$ – timtfj Dec 11 '18 at 17:07

The following reddit post has a decent list of math resources:

One site I did not see it their list that I've found very helpful:

  • Kahn Academy, http://www.khanacademy.org/
    • You'll find tons of explanatory videos from various branches of mathematics; plus, each subject is explained pretty good, and the videos are easy to follow

    $\begingroup$ Khan Academy is terrible. Try MIT's opencourseware instead. $\endgroup$ – user126 Jul 21 '10 at 10:23

  • $\begingroup$ I have seen over half of Khan Academy's math videos and done nearly all exercises. I am now studying pure mathematics at college. Khan academy's math is good for getting a basic understanding of math, or if your math skillset crumbled somewhere along your highschool education, like it did for me. But there is a huge difference between KA's math level and college math. If you're serious about learning math, and you already have a decent understanding of the basics, I'd say don't bother with Khan Academy. If you never really understood math well though, it might be a good place to start. $\endgroup$ – xcrypt Jan 8 '13 at 23:16

A useful one for undergraduate level maths is Mathcentre. It has useful background material for people studying maths, or who need some maths background for other courses.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ That, and the associated mathtutor.ac.uk site, are more pre-undergraduate in UK terms, though still worthwhile $\endgroup$ – Henry Nov 27 '15 at 8:33

Purplemath has a list for math lessons and tutoring. It's a list with various links and short reviews referring to tutoring and instructional resources.

Two good general references:

J. Milne has publicized his lecture notes for free, complete with exercises in fields such as group theory, field theory, algebraic geometry, algebraic number theory, "and so on". http://www.jmilne.org/math/CourseNotes/index.html (probably best suited for upper undergrad or grad students, though)

Paul's Online Notes seem to be very good: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/

They cover most basic math courses that an undergraduate would take.
