Maths Clips for the Classroom

    Just wondered if others could share their recommendations of maths clips that can be used in the classroom. I'm particularly interested in ones that show how maths skills taught in school can be used in a real life context. I'm teaching a middle ability year ten class today and I'm going to show them part of an episode of 'homes under the hammer' in the context of teaching percentage profit/loss.

    I'm aware of the BBC bitesize class clips and some of these are good. Is anyone aware of and willing to share a link to a list of other sources of recommended clips with the areas of the curriculum that they relate to? Would very much appreciate any suggestions.
  2. I would suggest some videos from online courses by guys like Coursera or EdX, https://papersowl.com/blog/online-math-courses, here's a great list of free ones someone made. I would suggest checking different platforms so you can decide which videos would be the most suitable, but overall, there's a lot of great stuff you can show your students

    Why you don't use YouTube? On its expanses one can find the answer to any question. I found professional videos from experts for my subject on marketing (https://app-reviews.org/). BBS is a very high-quality resource, which can be compared only with TED video. These are short videos in which a variety of spheres of life are explained by an accessible language. There are also bright videos that you can use for students, because everything is served in the form of infographics.

    Above members said right, we can use different platforms and also can use YouTube for getting math clips for the classroom. But everyone must notice that YouTube or other platforms give limited access to such clips. As a math teacher, I can say such content not enough. So, I want such more detailed match clips, therefore, I discussed with my colleague then he recommended me https://www.mymathdone.com/. Where you can get more clips and other helping math related content. That content will help you to teach more effectively in the classroom. Good Luck.

    This appears to be a website where (for a no doubt substantial fee) you can get your homework done or dissertation written for you, presumably in American English.
  6. Do more cunningly: ask your students to investigate this question, so that everyone writes an essay on how to use math in real life. Well, after you only have to select the best and prepare interactive material. And make sure that they do not use services such as [This comment/section/image has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions]. You'll notice this through a terrible grammar :))) We were always told at school that mathematics is only needed to develop logical thinking. And I am very glad that there are teachers who are dealing with this issue

    I am not sure that pupils would recognise the humour.
  10. Thanks a lot for the recommendation
