Looking for some help with upper level math? Math Vids is a new website, launched in March, that is connecting math teachers and students via online video math lessons. As the website is getting up to speed collecting video math lessons, they are offering a free membership along with their paid subscription service. So, if you have a middle school up through college math student, sign up right away while the free membership is still available.
How it works:
- Math teachers (like you) make and contribute videos.
- Math Vids staff review the videos for appropriateness and accuracy after which the video is posted. Student rate the videos and the best ones move to the top of the list.
- Since there are multiple videos on the same topic, so you get a variety of teaching styles, which makes it more likely one will fit you.
Are you a good math teacher yourself? MathVids also offers an opportunity to earn free stuff, like a graphing calculator, if you can make high quality math tutoring videos that are consistently highly rated by the students. It’s your chance to contribute and get a few prizes as well.
