YouTube has over billions of educational contents, all it needs is you to explore them. There might be a topic in any of the subjects you don’t get, just search for it on YouTube. You will see so many ways different people across the globe used it solving problems. You can pause the videos or go back and forth on things that weren’t clear to you. This is something some classroom teachers may not do because of the limited time they have to finish a syllabus. Now, if a concept is still not clear to you, you can always ask in comment sections or watch it explained from other videos.


To use the internet responsibly to your advantages, lets follow the steps below.

Let’s learn how to search for a topics using YouTube.


  1. Launch any web browser you have (Chrome, Firefox etc.)
  2. Type YouTube in the address bar. Some browsers have the YouTube icon below the address bar, so click on it.
  3. Type your topic in the search field. Eg. Logarithm or How to construct a pie chart.
  4. Select the desired video displayed in relation to your search.

Now that you know, try for yourself. You don’t need extra classes.


The second one is Google search.

Some people prefer to read the content than to watch. If you like reading over watching, then Google search is for you. It has over a billion information you need. Let’s again follow the steps to find answers to that difficult question.



  1. Launch your web browser
  2. Enter your search in the address bar (e.g. Mathematics past questions and answers)
  3. Select your desired one from the result of the search.

Pages that are on top of your search are the ones read by many, so go for those one. It isn’t a guarantee they have the best content or examples. You may get great contents from the ones below too.
