BrainPOP's Math module includes a collection of videos and activities that are grouped into six content areas: algebra; data analysis; geometry & measurement; numbers & operations; probability; and ratio, proportion, & percent. Most videos cover middle school content, but some address content relevant in the upper-elementary grades. Other videos touch on some more advanced curriculum, as well. Overall, these resources are easy to incorporate into a lesson. 

Show a video as part of your whole-class instruction, or have students view it in small groups. To address any questions, have students use the Q&A activity that comes with each video to help guide a class discussion. Afterwards, have students complete the pencil-and-paper activity and quiz on their own. You can also use the FYI section as a writing activity. For example, students can write a 3-2-1 summary about one of the topics: 3 things they learned, 2 things they found most interesting, and 1 thing they still have questions about. As another option, the games can work well as rewards for students who've completed other work.
