Well. If you want some stuff to learn...

So. If you want stuff to learn, I figure there has to be places.
And since the internet is pretty big.
I figured.
You can make a big place.
To like. Put links.
To places on the internet.
Where you can learn.
Stuff.

Also, don't forget traditional textbooks, or other books. Most libraries let you do Interlibrary Loan (ILL) for free, where you can order books from libraries everywhere -- even internationally. Often, you have to ask a librarian to put in the order for you, but you can browse available books in libraries all over on Open WorldCat (try searching by title in their google search on the right.)

I find it easiest to use Amazon.com to browse books, and read reviews, then use WorldCat to find out if a given book is available through ILL. Also, sometimes I buy books online, and later sell them via amazon for close to the price I paid. That can be more convenient if you have the money.

Another good option, if you don't mind reading in a library, is to explore university libraries. Most let the public in, though only some let you get a library card to check things out (often for some amount of money.)

A really good genetics site which provides games to help you learn about different areas. You have to click the microscope to enter. It also has a game which shows you how to do pedigrees - It's the genetic consuelling one.

Re: Well. If you want some stuff to learn...

Yeah, be careful though if you intend to learn by yourself, this guy actually tells us that the method most teacher teach us sucks but he also says that beginners should have a teacher at the beginning because of all the bad habits they can take if they don't, look at this page:
http://www.pianofundamentals.com/book/en/1.III.18.1

Quote:Many beginners would like to start learning piano on their own, and there are valid reasons for this. However, there is no question that, for the first 6 months (and probably much longer), there is no faster way to start than taking lessons from a teacher, even one who teaches the intuitive method.

[...]

Firstly, the most fundamental things that you do every time you play, such as hand position, sitting position, hand movements, etc., are difficult to explain in a textbook, whereas a teacher can show you instantly, what is right and what is wrong. You don't want to pick up these wrong habits and have to live with them all your life. Secondly, a beginner sitting down at the piano and playing for the first time is usually making at least 20 mistakes at the same time (left-right coordination, volume control, rhythm, arm and body movements, speed, timing, fingering, trying to learn the wrong things first, total neglect of musicality, etc., etc.).

Some good stuff there. Starts right at the beginning and progresses towards more advanced stuff, but I don't think it's updated too regularly.

Re: Well. If you want some stuff to learn...

Nice math sites

http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/
Pretty much aimed towards people on high school math teams, lots of great problems with a question database. If you're into proofs, then check out some of the Math Olympiad stuff.

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/High_Schoo ... Extensions
Great thing to access during school, since from far away it looks like a normal Wikipedia page. One of my favorite websites.

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/
Great reference, I used to explore this website when i was really young and it helped spark my love of math. Lots of other stuff such as forums (saturated w/ teachers tho).

http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
My favorite website by far, just check it out.

http://www.dansmath.com/
Great problems of the week, over 200 of them with a running contest of points for sending in the right answer that starts at the beginning of the year (definitely NOT updated every week tho, more like a problem of the month)

http://www.cut-the-knot.org/index.shtml
Lots of very fun math applets, wide range of difficulty. Every page on this site loads extremely slow for me.

http://www.qbyte.org/puzzles/
Lots of great problems.

http://www.khanacademy.org/index.html
Just found out about this through the SS forums and the videos cover a wide range of topics and could replace every math course even up into college. Explained extremely slow, tho, but that may have been his intention.

Quote:C++ is a general purpose programming language with a bias towards systems programming that

Not into it anymore, but I recommend "C++ without fear" by Brian Overland if you don't know programming yet, or if you know the basics. It might be possible to get it in a library. Also:
