There are 100's of 10 minute free videos from the beginning to some advanced math. It is also a nice resource for other disciplines.

Here is their basic arithmetic video series.
    http://www.khanacademy.org/#arithmetic

Here is their core algebra video series.
    http://www.khanacademy.org/#algebra

Here is their core geometry video series.
    http://www.khanacademy.org/#geometry

And here is the home page of the Khan University:

Not for points since phoffric said it first, but I would just like to second what he said. I highly recommend knanacademy.org.

What is a PG?

What level of mathematics are you trying to learn?

MIT has put all of its courses on line:  http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/#mathematics

Videos are nice, but if you really want to learn math, you should probably solve the homework problems too.
They will generally be available at the MIT OCW website as well.

After completing the begining math work, if interested, you can move onto advanced work. For that I recommend these videos of college classes.

(It also includes some of the MIT courses mentioned by d-glitch.)

phoffricCommented:
It depends on what kind of applications you are working with (or want to work with) to determine what kind of math you need. If you list the applications, you may get more taylored suggestions. In general, learning math is a useful discipline in developing problem solving skills, which may possibly translate into improving software programming. But, it may not be necessary. It may be possible to learn other skills such as OO techniques. It mostly depends on the applications you wish to go into.

PG means Post Graduation. (i.e. after schooling 10+2, 4 years of college and 2 years of PG course)
I hope you are from India.
Would you please tell me what topic of mathematics you want to learn and also at what level (degree level or school level etc ) so that I can search and give you some good links for you.
Thank you

Hi Sham,

some lectures on logic, combinatorics and discrete math would not hurt, if you are into software development and computer networks.

Hi Sham,

you should add some basic statistics to the list, then.

hello moorthy
I would like to go through basics that person of any discipline must know.
In addition, very importantly,  maths that help me in programming irrespective of game/network/.. programming, as this would be my source of bread/butter.
