Math From a Different Point of View

My students need access to 12 math and science videos to supplement classroom instruction when they are absent from class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach math in a small high school in North Texas. There is only one math teacher per subject area. So, for example, all students taking an algebra class or a geometry class have the same teacher, ie: students do not get to select their instructors.

While we have a strong tradition of success within our math department, there are students who could benefit from seeing how a different teacher would approach a problem, compared with the one they are exposed to every day .

The videos that I have selected cover math basics from elementary through pre-algebra to help link lessons to students' prior knowledge. These will be especially helpful to struggling at-risk students who may have gaps in their learning. There are also videos on applying algebraic problem solving skills to percentages, interest rate, geometry and physics problems. Kids need to really buy into the fact that math skills are a necessity outside of the classroom, in real life situations.

Your support will give my students a new perspective on how math is being used all around them. They will be exposed to new strategies for problem solving. This will help to clarify and reinforce how their understanding of mathematical applications can effect their future success in their college math and science coursework, as well as their ability to use these skills at home and on the job.
