Transcript of Real World Resources
Get the Math
The Get the Math resource is a combination of video and web activities that help junior grades develop algebraic thinking for solving real world problems. Students are able to see how algebra is involved in music, fashion, video games, restaurants and basketball. The videos are engaging for students and provide challenges for students to really get them thinking outside the box. The website also includes lesson plans and professional development videos for teachers.
Ted Ed uses YouTube videos that are educational and part of a series called Math in Real Life. Teachers are able to customize the lesson to their class needs. The videos have sections called Think, Dig Deeper and Discuss that have potential questions teachers can ask their class. Teachers are able to create their own lessons and share the videos through a variety of social media tools.
The Ted Ed videos display how math is used in real life and give students authentic learning experiences.
