Five Reasons to Watch Math Videos
The videos in this section relate to our educational viewpoints on how math should be seen by both teachers and students in classroom.
Our goals in presenting these videos are to help make math teaching and learning fun for everyone!
The benefits of watching educational math videos isn’t really limited to just five, but we will cover the five benefits in relation to teaching and learning.
I. Makes Teaching and Learning Easier
Our “Is Math a language?” video benefits students and teachers alike in encouraging the use of Math vocabulary when explaining answers to common Math problems.
One of the unfortunate realities in learning math is that students may find it hard to visualize abstract math concepts for the first time. It is easier when they can make connections to math in every day life.
Educational math videos can be a great source of teaching when the challenges of speaking about a concept is hard to image how it can help in our daily lives!
II. Helps Overcome Math Anxiety
The second is to appreciate and cure negative emotions and anxieties as it relates to math.
Our “Why is Math hard?” video introduces students and teachers to the two main factors that may cause students to perceive math as being ‘hard’. Both teachers and students need to recognize and then communicate the following three points;
- The emotions involved in learning.
- The opportunity to learn something new.
- The steps to becoming better problem solvers
III. Improves Problem Solving Skills
The third is in improving problem solving skills to make teaching and learning math easier.
Students who have a hard time transitioning to the more “abstract” concepts of problem solving will find it easier to see how the steps to problem look like in front of them.
Our “How To Improve Your Problem Solving Skills in Math” video introduces students and teachers to our recommended three step-solution to approaching problem solving questions in Math.
When you find a good educational math video, you can watch it get a “refresher” on how to problem solve the right way!
IV. Helps Communicate Steps To Problem Solving
By watching how others communicate steps to problem solving, it makes it easier for when it’s time to for us to communicate the steps to our teacher or fellow classmates in the same way.
Helps to Understand Social Emotional Learning
The videos in this section relate to educational viewpoints related to understanding what social emotional learning is, how it impacts on learning in the math classroom, and why it is important to understand its inclusion in educational evaluations in today’s classroom.
V. Helps With Every Day Math
When we take the time to see that math is all around us, we can learn to enjoy it more in everyday settings.
Our math videos are intended to provide easy to follow methods for solving common problems in math. We have two very common every day math topics presented below: adding fractions (with different denominators), and adding integers.
