Give page a few seconds to load because of all the videos, and refresh it if it's been a while since you've visited this page new videos are being added here and on several other pages (especially the blog) monthly.
Due to a generous donation by Elisabeth Stevens video production is now in overdrive. There are now two pages of sample lessons, the tabs are oddly enough Marked Sample Lessons and Sarah SL, Sarah is an autistic student and I thought it would be good to give her her own page. You can learn a lot there. The Advanced Algebra Tab and the Test Tab also have lots of video on them.
It's the same password for all these pages. Check out the Screencasts Tab for even more. The screencast software I use doesn't always make for smooth video, and sometimes the sound or video is out of sync, however the information is there even if the streaming isn't pretty, but now there are more and longer videos that stream nicely. Hours and hours worth: you have video's that range from 5 minutes up to an hour. Lots of them are in bite sized pieces of 15 to 30 minutes.
Anyhow, here is a sampling of vids I've made, there are 200+ and counting on Youtube. People no longer have any excuse. You have a set of blocks start using them. These math videos should get you started, give you enough to start going on your own, give you ideas for lessons and generally start turning some light bulbs on for how the whole thing goes together.
Here is an ONE HOUR OVERVIEW showing some of the ways you can apply manipulatives to teaching math:
Early 1990's in Utah:
Vintage footage from the early 90's, a few commercials for an Idaho Math Center, two News clips and some footage of Jerry explaining some of the parts of the manipulatives he made.
Back even further, the 80's.
Very good with regard to degree of difficulty also fom 80's.
Good testimonials from the Utah phaze.
