Hi everyone

I wanted to share with you my Maths Animations that I create to help students with their studies:

Pythagoras:

Fractions:

I'm hoping to make lots more when I find the time!
Please feel free to share them with your students, and you can also subscribe to my YouTube channel:

I currently tutor maths, and am training to become a maths teacher. So far, the kids seem to love these! And watch them over and over again. I also take requests if anyone wants a particular video

Could I suggest a correction to the Pythagoras animation. Capital letters should be used for vertices with lower case letters being used for the lengths of the sides.

Point taken!
Will remember that in the future. Didn't cross my mind until you mentioned it, but yes good point Thanks!

For the most part I like the one on Pythagoras' theorem. I'd add a clear statement of the theorem at the beginning though.

I don't think it's good enough to show a triangle and write next to it a^2 + b^2 = c^2.

I didn't think it was wise to get too bogged down in the theorem at this stage. The animations are meant more for quick, easy, punchy information on topics kids struggle with.
Which is why I used the colours to represent which side each letter applies to. It's clear and easy to remember, and understand.
If I were to write out an entire lesson on Pythagoras using animation, then yes you could include the theorem in more detail.
