Math Tutoring - Geometry - Quadrilaterals
This introductory video shows students the basic principles of quatrilaterals. Squares, rectangles, and parallel sides are all important concepts that students should know when learning about quadrilaterals.
Commutative Property of Addition
Students learn the following addition properties: the commutative property of addition, which states that a + b = b + a. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.
This video discusses the properties of addition. The video startes with solving a simple addition problem using a number line, they then change the order of the problem. This shows the commutative property for addition. Then they show commutative using negative numbers. Then other examples are shown. Then they show problems with parenthesis, which tells the student to do this part first. This shows the associative property for addition. More examples are given. Video is good quality and good for
Properties of Multiplication
This video indicates it is for pre-algebra, however this video would be good for anyone who is review mulitiplication and its properties. This video begins with showing the Commutative Property for Multiplication, which states when two numbers are switched they will have the same product. An example is given with three numbers, this is done from left to right (order of operations). Then they switch what is mulitiplied first the product is the same, this is the Associative Property for Mulitiplic
The Distributive Property
Students learn the distributive property, which states that a(b + c) = ab + ac. In other words, the number or variable that is outside the set of parentheses "distributes" through the parentheses, multiplying by each of the numbers inside. Note that a negative sign outside a set of parentheses can be thought of as a negative 1, so a negative 1 distributes through the parentheses. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of concept.
Using the Distributive Property
The distributive property is one of the most important and fundamental parts of algebra. In this video the math teacher shows how to break down the equation in to the simplier components. Shows negative numbers also. This is a great beginning video. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of concept.
Animals in the Alaskan Waters

It tells the name of the letter a, make the short a sound a few times, then shows a picture of an apple, which begins with short a. The video ends with the word "apple" being spelled out on the screen and sounded out phonetically. (:52)
Rational vs Irrational Numbers
Students learn that the following number sets represent rational numbers: natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, fractions, terminating decimals, and repeating decimals. For example, -2, 7, 3/4, 0.0006, and 0.191919... are all rational numbers. However, a decimal that is both non-terminating and non-repeating is an irrational number. For example, 0.12579835781... and 39.779778776775... are irrational numbers. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of t
