When I am not working with students, I spend time creating math videos! Many of my videos are geared toward alternative methods for solving math problems. I have a range of grade levels and subjects available.
You can see ALL of my videos by heading to my YouTube channel! I have tons of videos all about math, online tutoring, and more!
Below you will find a few of my favorites and a few of my most popular videos. Please enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe!
How to Solve for x by Completing the Square
An Algebra 1 essential! Most students learn how to factor to solve trinomials or quadratics, but Completing the Square can be an effective tool as well!
Trig functions can be so confusing at first!! Sine, Cosine, and Tangent! Oh my! But don’t let them scare you! These can really help you find missing side lengths or angles in right triangles!
Homemade Math Games!
This was a SUPER fun video to make because my niece co-starred with me! We took a regular game and “mathified” it! Take a look!
Multiplying 9s Tricks
This is one of my very first videos, and I’m still really proud of it. So many of my adult friends watch this and say, “I wish I knew that when I was in school!” This video will teach you several neat “tricks” for multiplying 9 times any 1-digit number.
Here is a method for multiplication of multi-digit numbers (anything larger than 9). This method is very confusing for some, but very easy for others. So try it out, but if you’re not sold, I’ve got other methods for multiplying these multi-digit numbers.
How to do Grid Multiplication (or Box Method)
When I have kids who don’t really ‘get’ the Lattice Multiplication method, I turn to Grid Multiplication. It’s generally, the same concept, but the format is a lot easier for most of my students to use. Grid Multiplication is a method of multiplying multi-digit (anything larger than 9) numbers. Very similar to “Partial Products” method or “Break Apart” methods. Try it!
Big 7 Division
This has always been one of my most popular videos! I love the technique, and it really does make long division easier for students who have a hard time processing so many different operations within one problem!
