Reducing Fractions Part 2b
This video is a continuation of Part 2a, they start where the previous one left off, the middle of a problem. They continue to reduce fractions using many examples. The numerator and denominators are increased to larger numbers. They do a number of different examples. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.
Fractions 1: Reducing
This video is a basic review of how to reduce fractions to the lowest terms. The instructor emphasizes that the number 1 is essential to working with fractions. The instructor uses a whiteboard.
Song for Fractions
A better way to understand fractions through a creative song. Mr Duey performs a live action rap song about fractions. The song teaches about improper fractions, and how to get a percentage from a fraction with visuals of the mathematical computations during the rap. Entertaining while learning for kids.
Definitions of Polygons (part 2)
In this video, the instructor shows the viewer the different types of polygons based on the number of sides and angle measurement. The instructor uses computer software for instruction. Clear, step-by-step instruction.
Zero and Friends - Zero Singing the Blues
Zero contemplates whether or not he really is a number in this blues duet with his number friend, One. Beautiful pen and ink drawing back ground with animated zero and one cartoon character. (1:21)
Finding the Mean
This PowerPoint video demonstrates how to find the mean for a set of data. One example is modeled with a step by step approach.
Find Missing Term in a Proportion
This is a video presentation in direct proportion. The objective of the video is to find the missing term expressed as x in a proportion. An example is used with the number of dogs.
Median of a Trapezoid
In this video students learn the definitions of a trapezoid, an isosceles trapezoid, and the median of a trapezoid. Students also learn the following theorems related to trapezoids. The base angles of an isosceles trapezoid are congruent. The median of a trapezoid is (a) parallel to the bases and (b) has a length equal to the average of the lengths of the bases.
Intro to Range, Median, and Mode
This video provides and introduction to range, median and mode. Examples of range, median, and mode are shown in the video.
Video on Subtracting Decimals - Math Help
Students learn to subtract decimals by first lining up the decimal points, then subtracting the numbers by column. They also learn to add zeros if the numbers don't line up evenly. Instructor uses a white board. Suitable for older elementary students.
Subtracting Decimals - Math Help
Students learn to subtract decimals by first lining up the decimal points of each number. For fourth-graders and older students.
5th Grade: Dividing With Fractions and Whole Numbers
This is a lesson on dividing fractions with whole numbers. It is geared towards fifth-grade students.
Basic Math: Lesson 6 - Video Clip #9 - Arithmetic of Fractions: Addition
Concepts covered: Addition of Improper and Proper Fractions and also Mixed Numbers.
Multiplication 4: 2-digit times 1-digit number
In this video, the instructor shows how to multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number. Instructor uses the Paint Program to demonstrate the points of his discussion. For third grades through sixth. (At one point instructor makes an error...he says that "anything x 1=9". However, minus that one error, the rest of the video is very good.)
Students learn the definitions of a segment, a ray, and length, as well as the symbols that are used in Geometry to represent each figure. Students also learn the definitions of an endpoint, opposite rays, a coordinate, and a number line. Students are then given geometric figures that are composed of segments and rays, and are asked true/ false questions about the given figures. Students are also given number lines, and are asked short answer questions about the given number lines. Students are
SEGMENTS AND RAYS
This short powerpoint presentation is designed to help the high school students really appreciate the beauty of mathematics and its real life application.
My Hero, Zero - Song
This animated video presents number zero. It explains why the invention of the number zero matters so much. There are illustrations based on historical facts and reference to the way in which we can use zero for multiplications by ten and a hundred.
