digital handwriting pad recommendation

Hi,

I enjoy Khan Academy and am on there a lot. It's a combination of his voice, teaching style, and handwriting I guess. But, I like how he works directly on the computer screen with a writing pad. I normally use tons of paper to practice problems and would like to try doing what he does.

Does anyone recommend a writing pad that is a decent size where I could work out multiple (or complex) problems? I'm not wealthy but at the same time am suspicious when I see some on Amazon for really cheap.

I have no experience with them but thought some of the people here might or use one now.

Thanks,
Chris

the one's that would really allow you to do math are way more expensive than is worth it.

When I was in school the library provided scrap computer paper for free. Maybe yours does too.

A case of copy paper can be had for as low as $10

I daresay that will last you a year and is recyclable.
Thanks from blimper

Thanks. After looking over a lot of them, I just ended up not buying one. Was sort of thinking it would be better to be able to write on the screen with the "scratchpad" option on Khan than paper. Pretty much just a spur of the moment, lazy idea

I use Ziteboard (https://ziteboard.com) for teaching math online. It is a nice whiteboard, the freehand drawing is smooth on ipad with stylus. Give it a try!

Math Focus: Yet to find out.
If you do enough research into a tablet that you think would be good, consider it a long term investment.

I was in the same financial boat at the start of my degree and decided to invest in an iPad for taking notes and storing lecture notes etc. totally worth it in my opinion. I had all of my lecture notes (with personal annotations) stored in an app called Notability. All of which were synced to Dropbox in PDF format for viewing on other devices.

The only quirk is getting used to the stylus. Can take time to find one that works for you, but they aren't too expensive.
