The first video we previewed was "The Basic Math Word Problem Tutor." This video is 8 hours long with 15 sections and builds on grade 1 to 7 basic math. The word problems are more simple in the beginning and progressively get more difficult.The early segments of the video could easily be used by 3rd to 5th grade students needing help with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division word problems. The teacher uses a white board for the demonstration of the problems. The video was easy to understand and enjoyable as well.
Concepts covered include word problems with basic math and then introduces word problems with decimals, fractions, percents and ratios. The skills taught on this video help children tackle word problems more effectively which also helps to build reasoning and logic skills.
The second video we previewed was "The Algebra 2 Tutor." This DVD has 6 hours of video with 15 sections. This DVD was previewed by the men in my family that have done advanced math. They said he was interesting to listen to, the videos were very simple to follow, and understand, and kept their attention. My 17 year old said they were done very well. Examples of things covered on this video are the quadratic formula, simplifying radical expressions, and graphing inequalities.
