How I Use It
This is a great resource to use to introduce or review math and/or science content. I use a flipped classroom model and these videos allow me to frontload my students' learning for homework as well as review content during class. For example, I assign students to watch a video at home and the next day we discuss what they learned from the video or slideshow. It is also a great way for students to review content before taking an assessment.
My Take
The videos/slideshows are short but packed with lots of content. Students are engaged by the characters and their real world math related problems. The Science videos expose students to complex content that they are able to understand quite easily. They also remember the content and refer to the information as they do experiments in class.
