Your child can easily find a video on the skill discussed in class and enhance their learning and have the content re-taught without classroom distractions. The concepts are taught in a way where your child can take notes and see illustrations and pictures describing the ideas. Furthermore, each lesson has a second video where example problems are worked out. Your child has the ability to rewind and watch again on confusing concepts. The overacheaving student can watch videos on upcoming classroom concepts and be well prepared for the classroom lesson.
How long are the videos?

What would you recommend for my child to get the most out of watching these video?
A great way to maximize time spend watching videos and see the best results is to watch the lesson videos just like it is a lecture in class. Have your child take notes on the instruction and pause/rewind difficult concepts. Then watch the example video, but have your child try the problem first. After your child completes the problem then watch it worked out. Your child will receive immediate feedback and see the correct solution worked out.
My son/daughter has a hard time remembering previous concepts for finals. Can these videos help?
Yes! These videos are great for reviewing for finals. The student can sit back and watch lessons being explained to them a re-taught. What a great way to study old material.
What if my child's teacher teaches the material differently than is described on these videos?
Many times in mathematics, there are multiple ways to do a problem. Being able to do problems differently is the key to really comprehending what is being taught.
Where can my child access the videos? Do they have to be at our home computer?
The videos can be accessed from anywhere. Your child will be given a username, and he/she can access the videos from any computer and/or their smartphone.
If my child cannot "get it" during class then why will these videos be any different?
There are many reasons related to social fears and social interaction as to why students do not correctly comprehend the material given in class. Students are distracted by others or themselves. Socialization is the main priority for many teenagers. Lots of students get anxiety in class and this hurts their ability to learn or seek help. These videos allow your child to take the instruction home with them free from distractions and social pressures. They can learn at their own pace and focus on understanding the material rather than social aspects of being a teenager.
