PBS Math Club is a set of free videos that claim to align to the Common Core standards for grades 6-9. However, at the time of review, the selection of videos and activities is less comprehensive, focusing, rather, on a few specific topics. That said, your students are bound to love the videos here -- they star a group of kids who use everyday examples to explain concepts like integers and the number line. Videos can be viewed as a whole or as "InstaCrams," which break down the content into short clips.
Interactive video quizzes are included for some of the topics. Even though the content here is somewhat limited, it's nonetheless a fun way to introduce or reinforce concepts like number lines and integers. With the exception of a few interactive You Tube quizzes, videos are the only resources in this collection -- you won't find teacher resources like those found in PBS LearningMedia's other collections.Continue reading Show less
Key Standards Supported
The Number System
Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.
Find and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram; find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane.
Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, p – q = p + (–q). Show that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts.
