Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer anything for free?

Absolutely! Each textbook has free content. Usually, the first example video in each section is free. For BYU Math 116, the entire first chapter is free. We encourage you to watch these videos to see how we can help you succeed in math!

Why should I pay for Symplit when I can use Khan Academy for free?

While Khan Academy and similar resources can be useful, no other resources currently exist outside of publisher material that is tailored to your textbook. We at Symplit have organized content based on textbook, so it is always extremely easy to find help on the concepts you are struggling with.

Furthermore, the number of worked examples at Khan Academy and other places is severely limited, with usually only 2-3 examples per concept. In contrast, at Symplit we have many examples for each section (usually around 10). For the harder concepts, we make sure to have more examples so you can start to internalize the concepts and techniques in your class.

What do I do if I can’t find my textbook?

If you can’t find your textbook, send us an email at, or visit our Contact Us page. Give us the name of your school, the name of your textbook, author, and edition. We will work on getting your textbook up as quickly as possible, and will update you on when it will be available.

Can I use Symplit for High School?

Definitely! While our content is tailored to college level textbooks, many high school classes (AP and otherwise) cover the same concepts. If you’d like to see content for your textbook on Symplit, send us as message at, or visit our Contact Us page.

Can I download and print PDFs?

Yes! We encourage you to try the practice problems listed on the PDF at the top of the section video pages before watching the videos. Also, study the handouts listed below the video links. These handouts have helpful strategies for approaching problems. Please note that these PDFs are copyrighted, so any reproduction and/or distribution (digital or physical) of them is strictly prohibited.

Am I allowed to download the videos?

Students are not able to download videos, due to copyright protections.However, when the Symplit app is available, students will be able to download videos into the app for use when an internet connection is not available.

Is there an app for this?

We are in the process of developing an app. We do not have a current estimate for when it will be available. We will update our users as soon as we know.

Does Symplit sell my information?

Absolutely not! Your privacy is extremely important to us. We will never share your private information with third parties.

I have a question that isn’t here; who do I ask?
