How Can Teachers Use It?

LearnZillion's Algebra module is a collection of video lessons that cover a generous portion of the algebra Common Core math standards. Although not all standards are addressed, the alignment is tight, especially for Algebra I courses. Lessons offer detailed examples with animated diagrams to help students develop a solid understanding of key algebra skills. Lessons that cover standards A.REI.3, A.REI.4B, and A.REI.5 include supplemental lesson commentaries and guided practice problems.

These video lessons are an excellent way to reinforce classroom instruction. After introducing a topic use the Assign tool to give kids lessons and videos -- have them work in small groups. Make sure they take notes, and encourage them to pause the videos as needed. Later, discuss the example problems as a whole class. For an assessment, you can ask kids to collaborate and develop their own problems -- exemplars they could present to the class.
