Ok, so I know it's not Monday, but.....

Here is a short video to start a discussion/review on fraction operations and equivalent fractions. After the video is shown, the students will be given a few minutes to come up with their answers then share with the class.

I'm really curious to see this play out in a lesson. I have one solution to the problem but am anxious to see if someone comes up with a different answer.

Greetings! My name is Heather and I just have a quick question about your blog! If you could email me at Lifesabanquet1(at)gmail.com that would be great!

ReplyDeleteCan you just ask me in a comment on here?

DeleteDear theMathSmith,

ReplyDeleteAs a proponent of math education in the United States, we need your help to promote our nationwide math competition by blogging or posting about it on your blog/forum.

As you probably already know, despite the fact that the US spends the most money on education per capita, our students are ranked 25th globally for math proficiency. The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to improving that statistic. MATHCOUNTS’ third annual “ Math Video Challenge” is a math competition for 6th to 8th graders that encourages student innovation as they create and star in their own math videos, thus exciting them to pursue higher education in math.

As the webmaster of theMathSmith, we are asking you to help support this effort by mentioning us in your next blog or forum post or promoting our logo with a link to the site. So far this contest has gathered over 500

submissions and millions of views on the videos. Our goal this year is this year is to do even better. With your help, we are confident we will reach this goal.

For more information on MATHCOUNTS or the Math Video Challenge, visit our webpages at mathcounts.org and videochallenge.mathcounts.org/math-camera-action.
