Redshirting in Kindergarten
In this professionally-produced video, learn why holding children back in kindergarten actually hinders learning. Children that are held back don't do as well in school work, have self-esteem problems, and the difference in age between them and younger children leads to unfair comparisons.
Gangs Part III
This video discusses the importance of parents and teachers working together to combat gangs. It also notes that mentors can help teens cope with issues that may lead to their joining a gang. Professionally produced video with expert interviews. (01:30)
Estimating Whole Numbers - by StudyJams
One way to estimate is by rounding a number. Rounding is a great way to make numbers easier to work with. Numbers are often rounded to the nearest ten, hundred, or thousand. Learn more about estimation and rounding with this step-by-step, interactive video from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
How to Prove Triangles are Similar
Students learn the following theorems related to similar
triangles. If an angle of one triangle is congruent to an angle of
another triangle, and the lengths of the sides that include each angle
are in proportion, then the triangles are similar (Side-Angle-Side
Similarity Theorem, or SAS Similarity Theorem). If the lengths of the
sides of two triangles are in proportion, then the triangles are
similar (Side-Side-Side Similarity Theorem, or SSS Similarity Theor
Triangle Angle Sum
This video explains that the sum of the three angles in any triangle adds up to 180 degrees. The importance of this fact in Geometry cannot be emphasized enough. The triangle angle sum theorem is used in almost every missing angle problem, in the exterior angle theorem, and in the polygon angle sum formula. (4:06)
Triangle Side and Angle Inequalities
This video explains why triangle side and angle inequalities are important when solving proofs. In any triangle, the largest angle is opposite the largest side (the opposite side of an angle is the side that does not form the angle). The shortest angle is opposite the shortest side. Therefore, the angle measures can be used to list the size order of the sides. The converse is also true: the lengths of the sides can be used to order the relative size of the angles. (1:54)
How to Find the Area of a Trapezoid
Note: The word trapezoid is spelled incorrectly in the video. John, a math teacher in the U.K., demonstrates on a small whiteboard how to find the area of a trapezoid. The instructor does one step at a time. (02:45)
Finding Area of a Parallelogram
Instructor demonstrates how to find the area of a parallelogram using the formula. One example is modeled using a step by step approach to plugging the values for specified variables in to the formula. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
Perimeter of a Parallelogram
The instructor uses an electronic sketchpad to demonstrate how to find the perimeter of a parallelogram. One example is modeled using a step by step approach for plugging values in to specified variables in the formula. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
The Rhino Song
This simple animation introduces young learners to the rhino. The video talks about its shape, its poor eyesight, and its location.
In this video they discuss what domestic animals are and gives some examples of domestic animals. Some domestic animals they show are cats, dogs, horses, cows, and pigs.
Learn About Domestic Animals
This simple animation (with the help of a talking elephant that drives) introduces young learners to animals that live on farms and in homes.
ABC's and Phonics with Puppy Dog
Strong visuals, letter repetition, and a comprehensive review teach children the alphabet. Live action of children singing and dancing while the traditional ABC song is sung. At 4 minutes and 25 seconds, simple objects are introduced for the letter "A." Snippet ends there. Video introduction is nearly 2 minutes long. (5:03)
ABC Phonics Chant With Musical Accompaniment
This video is a phonics chant to help students practice and review their phonics and alphabet at home. Each letter is shown on the screen first in upper and lower case. Then the sound of each letter is made. Finally, the letter name and sound are stated with a picture of an item beginning with the designated letter and sound. For example, M, /m/, mouse. The letters are easy to see and the sounds are clearly made, making this great for phonics practice.
Solving Inequalities in One Variable: Part 1 of 2
The instructor uses an electronic sketchpad to demonstrate how to solve linear inequalities in one variable. This video is part 1 of 2 and several problems are solved and plotted on a number line.
Graphing Linear Inequalities in Two Variables
This video begins with a simple inequality, then explains how to graph the inequality. The instructor begins by showing how to graph the boundary line, then tells how to show the correct solution set on the graph by shading.
Graphing Linear Inequalities from Standard Form
Instructor uses power point to demonstrate how to graph linear inequalities in standard form. Examples model finding the x- and y-intercepts, drawing a line through the two intercepts and forming a boundary line. The instructor then discusses whether the boundary line is dashed or solid and which way to shade the inequality, above or below the boundary line.
Solving and Graphing Linear Inequalities in Two Variables, Part I - Khan Academy
In this video, Sal Khan demonstrates how to solve and graph a linear inequality (y > 5). He starts with a number line. Salman Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. (02:14) There is a lot of information on the screen--the viewer may want to open the video to 'full screen.' (02:15)
Graphing Systems of Inequalities, Part 2
The instructor in this video, Sal Khan, in an easy, conversational tone, continues to discuss how to graph inequalities. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. The student or educator may want to open the video to 'full screen' as the instructor is using a black background and the writing is small.
