Since the adoption of the Common Core, many questions still exist about methodologies in teaching math. Videos are one exceptional way to demonstrate to new teachers, parents, and community members how students should be using higher-order thinking skills to engage with mathematical content.
American Federation of Teachers (AFT) teachers, working with Teaching Channel, produced this series of videos in the Share My Lesson series:
• First grade: Leprechaun Traps – Addition within 100: www.bit.ly/1hiXOyY
• Fourth grade: Multiplying Whole Numbers and Fractions: www.bit.ly/1jFlv4U
• Eighth grade: Conjecturing About Functions: www.bit.ly/1jFhlKh
• Eleventh grade: Sine and Cosine – Trigonometry in Flight: www.bit.ly/1ov6jHY
