What is the main benefit for me using these videos for my classroom?
With the increased classroom expectations and the move to Common Core, classroom time is becoming more valuable and scarce. With all of the changes, there is one thing that has not changed; the math skills remain the same. Common core is a new set of standards and new way of assessing our students, but math skills and techniques are the same. These videos provide your students with detailed instruction on math concepts. The students can use the videos for taking notes and seeing example problems worked out. These videos can compliment your classroom instruction and allow you the time for essential common core activities while your students still get direct instruction on key math ideas through the videos.
