Math Videos

I’ve been hearing about YouTube videos that teachers have been using to teach math.

I heard about this video from some teachers in Granite Falls http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRR9LK3zfho.  It flashes a series of 10-frames.  As students watch the video, you can ask them to:

  • Say the number of dots
  • Say the number of empty spaces
  • Show the number of dots with their fingers (1 hand shows the number of dots on the top row, 1 hand shows the number of dots on the bottom row)
  • Show the number of empty spaces with their fingers. (1 hand shows the number of empty spaces on the top row, 1 hand shows the number of empty spaces on the bottom row)
  • Say a math fact that goes with the frame (for example 5+4=9 or 10-1=9)
  • If students need more time, you can pause the video

Working with 10-frames helps students develop efficient addition/subtraction strategies.

A friend shared this video about Mean, Median, Mode http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNdVynH6hcY
