Transcript of Video in Learning

Video in the Math Classroom Video Review of LearnZillion The combination of color use, area models, and animated text and objects aids in making the topic more concrete rather than an abstract formula. It is difficult to include this type of visual interest in a face-to-face presentation and maintain an appropriate pace. The access to guided practice with explanations is also a unique feature students can access when they aren't with a face-to-face teacher. This video can be viewed by students in 8th grade to introduce and prove the Pythagorean Theorem, Which students will use for many applications in math classes. It could also be used in higher grades as a review, or as a supplement/resource for students that may be struggling. It is short and can be viewed in class or at home, and students have guided practice included in the main video as well as a separate video of more guided practice. What are the drawbacks or limitations of the video? The shapes on the grid aren't exactly lined up as good as they could be. This could be confusing for the students. Videos aligned to CC standards

Guided Practice video for students Prove the Pythagorean Theorem What this video affords/offers that other learning material (e.g. readings/text/images) do not? How can the video be used to support and/or enhance student learning?

Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse; apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. Could be used for grades 8-12 This is a 5 minute video that explains the Pythagorean Theorem using area models. Also, if this were used frequently, I think it would be better if the actual teacher made some videos as well, because I like the idea of the teacher demonstrating their own credibility and creativity, rather than completely relying on someone elses videos. Students would have to know a code to access the videos at home.
