]]>This Math for Homework article is designed to ensure that your child is successful in multiplying double digit numbers. As your child works his or her way through this Online Tutoring for Math article, they will learn how to use two effective strategies that make multiplying large numbers simple. The best part – each and every problem is accompanied by a video tutorial that takes children step-by-step through the process of leaning how to multiply large numbers.

First – Your child will learn how to multiply using a strategy called “Area Multiplication”. I designed Area Multiplication specifically for my 6th grade students who were struggling with the conventional method of multiplication. Area Multiplication uses an area box, which is an easy way of keeping each number in the correct place value position.

I have had incredible results with Area Multiplication! These strategies work with children who have ADHD, Dyslexia, and other learning disabilities. Virtually every one of my students who has learned the strategies within this Math for Homework article has passed the standards based assessment for multiplying double digit numbers.

For a child learning to multiply – Nothing is more frustrating than when they do NOT know all their multiplication facts. It stops them dead in their tracks, making multiplying large numbers virtually impossible. That brings us to our second strategy.

Second – This math for homework article will teach your child how to use skip counting with the multiplication algorithm. Most teachers instruct their students how to skip count ( 5, 10, 15,20…), but few teachers instruct their students how to integrate skip counting with the multiplication algorithm. In the following online tutoring in math videos, your child will work side by side with me. Within each video tutorial, I demonstrate how to integrate skip counting with the multiplication algorithm.

This post is part of a series designed to offer help with math homework, so that ANYONE can successfully multiply large numbers. This is the first book, (Area Multiplication: Book 1). It teaches how to multiply a two digit number by another two digit number, as in 86 x 97. The second book, (Area Multiplication: Book 2) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by a three digit number, as in 94 x 368. The third book, (Area Multiplication: Book 3) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by a four digit number, as in 37 x 6,375. The fourth book (Area Multiplication: Book 4) teaches how to multiply a three digit number by a four digit number, as in 694 x 6,368. And, the fifth book, (Area Multiplication: Book 5) teaches how to multiply with decimals.

Does your child struggle with multiplying large numbers, because he or she does not know all their multiplication facts?

The problem below is called a “Watch Me” challenge. This Watch Me challenge introduces the strategies of skip counting and Area Multiplication. More importantly, the video demonstrates how to use these two strategies while solving a multiplication problems. I encourage you to watch this first video with your children and to discuss the strategies. Then have your child write this first problem in their math notebook.

]]>This article is designed to teach how to multiply double digits. Your child will also get help for math homework, because every problem comes with its own video tutorial. From time to time, I get a handful of students who really struggle learning how to multiply double digits. I have them work through the video tutorials side by side with me. The students watch a bit of the video, pause it, and copy part of the problem. Then the students play a bit more of the video, pause it and copy another section of the problem. Students work their way through the video until they complete the entire problem. This is like having a personal tutor. Sometime students need to do five or six problems like this before they are ready to attempt to solve the problem on their own. That is fine. I have had incredible success by having students work their way through one problem after another – first with the aid of the video tutorial, and finally on their own.

First, your children will learn to use an area box, which is an easy way of keeping each number in the correct place value position. Next, your children will learn how to use skip counting any time they forget their multiplication facts. All the while, your child will have the support of the free tutoring for math video.

]]>Free tutoring math online will help your child learn to multiplication. Every problem within this post has a tutoring for math video, so your child can develop the crucial skill of multiplying large numbers. The word problems involve fun situations with animals that add to the interest and make the math more enjoyable. First, your children will learn to use an area box, which is an easy way of keeping each number in the correct place value position. Next, your children will learn how to use skip counting any time they forget their multiplication facts. All the while, your child will have the support of the free tutoring for math video.

This post is part of a series designed to offer homework help in math, so that ANYONE can successfully multiply large numbers. The first book, (Area Multiplication: Book 1) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by another two digit number, as in 86 x 97. The second book, (Area Multiplication: Book 2) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by a three digit number, as in 94 x 368. The third book, (Area Multiplication: Book 3) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by a four digit number, as in 37 x 6,375. This is the fourth book (Area Multiplication: Book 4). It teaches how to multiply a three digit number by a four digit number, as in 694 x 6,368. And, the fifth book, (Area Multiplication: Book 5) teaches how to multiply with decimals.

I developed Area Multiplication specifically for my students who did NOT know their multiplication facts and could not multiply large numbers. I have had incredible results! These strategies work with children who have ADHD, Dyslexia, and other learning disabilities. Virtually every one of my students who has learned this strategy has passed the standards based assessment for multiplying large numbers.

Does your child struggle with multiplying large numbers, because he or she does not know all their multiplication facts?

The problem below is called a “Watch Me” challenge. This Watch Me challenge introduces the strategies of skip counting and Area Multiplication. More importantly, the video demonstrates how to use these two strategies while solving a multiplication problems. I encourage you to watch this first video with your children and to discuss the strategies. Then have your child write this first problem in their math notebook.

]]>I created this series entitled, The Deadly Pit for my students who need to know how to work with Rations and Proportions. This article offers a number of free samples that teach the essential concepts of how to write ratios and then use those ratios to solve proportional problems. Each problem is designed in a manner that encourages participation and makes learning about ratios & proportions FUN! But that is not even the best part – Each problem is linked to a video tutorial, which ensures successful completion of this entire series.

Why do children love The Deadly Pit?

This series has children imagine that they have fallen into a “deadly pit”. The deadly pit contains a ratio of animals. In order to escape the pit, students must solve ratio and proportional problems. This makes The Deadly Pit more a game than a math problem. My students love solving Deadly Pit Problems!

I have scaffold these problems:

The first problem is a Watch ME. Students should read the problem and then click on the video to watch how the problem is solved. Students should copy the entire problem into their notebook.

The second problem is a WORK WITH ME. Students should read the problem then gather all their materials, so that they can do the problem with me. Students should play the math tutorial video and pause it when told. Finally, Students should copy the problem down on their own paper, and solve it with me. When the math tutorial video is complete, students should review the problem with their teacher or parent.

All the following problems are ON YOUR OWN. Students should solve the problems just as they did in the first two. Once you they completed the problem, they should watch the math tutorial video. Students should keep their paper with them while they watch the video. If they made a mistake, they should pause the math tutorial video and fix their mistake. That’s the fastest way to learn!

Would you like a FREE notebook on Ratios & Proportions before you get started on this Article?

Once you download this Book, you can upload it into Google Classroom.
Then you can assign this Video Notebook to your students.

Cyclical Learning Approach

I have incorporated a cyclical learning approach with math tutorial videos. Each educational concept is introduced, then reinforced, then revisited again and again to ensure success. Children solve word problems that teach them how to solve for ratios and then use those ratios to solve proportional problems. .

This series is broken into three books. The Following offers a free sample of each book.

]]>The following video notebooks are completely FREE and offer an easy way for children to learn about mathematics. There are currently three video notebooks in this article:
– Basic Operations in Mathematics
– Ratios & Proportions
– Algebraic Expressions
I use these video notebooks within my class, and my students have show significant improvement in their understanding as well as on their exams. This great success comes from the simple fact that children learn more effectively when they get to see the math in action. By watching these videos, children observe how the algorithm is used to solve a mathematical problem. After copying the notes into their notebook, I give my students more practice solving similar problems.

Why do children learn better from video notebooks?

Video Notebooks make more sense than notes within a textbook. These video notebooks explain the vocabulary and show the step by step process of using those vocabulary terms to solve problems. This makes the math much easier to understand. Video notebooks also reinforce effective note taking skills for students. Students become a part of the learning process, because they are able to watch, hear, and then copy the notes. Finally, children are able to revisit the videos for a quick review or for clarification of a concept.

HOW TO USE THIS ARTICLE:

I suggest you review each topic within this article. Choose the books that you want and get your FREE copy from my Teachers Pay Teachers store. There is a link after each booklet.

If you are a TEACHER, upload the PDF booklet into your Google Classroom as an assignment. Review the notes with your students, and answer any clarifying questions. Then have your students copy the notes into their notebooks. Remind them that they can revisit the videos any time they would like a quick review.

If you are a PARENT, keep the PDF booklet into your home computer. Watch the notes with your child, and discuss the math. It’s a great way to reinforce the importance of education with your children, and you may even find that you too are enjoying the math. Have your children copy the notes into their notebooks, and remind them that they can revisit the videos any time they would like a quick review.

* I encourage you to have your children draw relevant pictures and use colored pencils or crayons whenever appropriate. This will make their notes stand out and help their understanding when reviewing for an exam.

Algebra tends to be an abstract educational strand that stops many children dead in their tracks. In today’s ever increasing need for children to continue their educational careers into college, it is more important than ever to have a strong foundation in algebra. This post includes fun videos that make six grade algebra easy! These fun problems not only develop six grade understanding – these strategies help to ensure a deeper level of understanding.

is a math help online lesson. It uses growth patterns, fun hearted challenges, and math tutorial videos to teach elementary school children the basics of algebra.

Why do kids love Algebra Expressions & The Great Wall

Algebra Expressions uses fun-fill word problems as a means of teaching children how to write expressions. In book two, children learn to combine terms and simplify algebraic expressions. Finally, children use growth patterns to create formulas in The Great Wall.

Cyclical Learning Approach

I have incorporated a cyclical learning approach with math tutorial videos. Each educational concept is introduced, then reinforced, then revisited again and again to ensure success. Children solve word problems that teach the basics of algebra.

This series is broken into three books. The first book is called Algebraic Expressions book 1 and teaches how to write mathematical expressions. The second book is called Algebraic Expressions book 2 and teachers how to simplify expressions. The third book is call The Great wall and teaches how to how to create and solve algebraic formulas.

I have scaffold these problems:

The first problem is a Watch ME. Students should read the problem and then click on the video to watch how the problem is solved. Students should copy the entire problem into their notebook.

The second problem is a WORK WITH ME. Students should read the problem then gather all their materials, so that they can do the problem with me. Students should play the math tutorial video and pause it when told. Finally, Students should copy the problem down on their own paper, and solve it with me. When the math tutorial video is complete, students should review the problem with their teacher or parent.

All the following problems are ON YOUR OWN. Students should solve the problems just as they did in the first two. Once you they completed the problem, they should watch the math tutorial video. Students should keep their paper with them while they watch the video. If they made a mistake, they should pause the math tutorial video and fix their mistake. That’s the fastest way to learn!

I created Fun Geometry to help my students understand the essential concepts of mathematics. The problems are designed in a manner that encourages participation and makes geometry fun. Each problem is linked to a helpful video tutorial, which ensures successful completion of the entire booklet.

Why do students love Fun Geometry?

Fun Geometry puts children in a situation where geometry is needed to solve a problem. My students rewrite the problem and truly enjoy drawing pictures of the animals, scenery, or situations within each problem. I enjoy grading the mixture of art and math that my students create.

Cyclical Learning Approach

I have incorporated a cyclical learning approach with math tutorial videos. Each educational concept is introduced, then reinforced, then revisited again and again to ensure success. Children solve word problems that teach them how to solve for both area and volume.

This series is broken into three books. The first book is called Animal Reserve and teaches how to find the area of irregular polygons. The second book is called Animal Nets and teachers how to solve for the surface area of a prism. The third book is call Animal Prisms and teaches how to love for the area of an irregular prism.

I have scaffold these problems:

The first problem is a Watch ME. Students should read the problem and then click on the video to watch how the problem is solved. Students should copy the entire problem into their notebook.

The second problem is a WORK WITH ME. Students should read the problem then gather all their materials, so that they can do the problem with me. Students should play the math tutorial video and pause it when told. Finally, Students should copy the problem down on their own paper, and solve it with me.

]]>Assorted Stumper Problems are perfect for Remote Learning.

Because each and every problem is linked to its own video tutorial, children can use this book while working from home. This makes Assorted Stumper Problems extremely effective for both remote learning or homeschool teaching. I have my students access this book through their Google Classroom accounts. I assign each problem separately. My students complete the problem, watch the tutorial video, and correct their work. Once complete, they upload a photo of their work to Google Classroom, and I grade their work.

Quality vs Quantity

I believe in quality over quantity when it comes to homework. I only give my students one problem per day. However, the problems are designed to allow students to demonstrate a depth of knowledge within each educational strand. Each booklet contains four problems and four video tutorials. I do not give homework on Fridays, so these Assorted Stumper Problems work perfectly for a quality over quantity homework plan.

Assorted Stumper Problems Challenge 7.1.1

You have 3/4 of a Banana Split. You want to share the banana split with your two best friends – one part for you and one part for each of them.

If you give an equal amount to yourself and each of your friends, how much of this tasty treat will each person get?

1.Complete the algorithm.
2.Create a mathematical model.
3.Make sure your algorithm agrees with your mathematical model.

Assorted Stumper Problems Challenge 7.1.2

You have been trapped within an ancient prison cell.

Its height is 12 feet high. Its length is 18 feet long. And, its width is 5 feet long.

In order to escape, you must draw a net and solve for the surface area of your trap. Then you must solve for how many cubic feet of air is in your trap?

Assorted Stumper Problems Challenge 7.1.3

You are standing on a frozen lake in Wisconsin next to these Canadian Geese. The temperature at noon was 36 degrees. Now it is 4:00 PM and the temperature is -22 degrees.

Your friend says, “Wow, the temperature just dropped 14 degrees!”

Is your friend correct?

If not – explain the mistake and calculate the actual difference in temperature.

Assorted Stumper Problems Challenge 7.1.4

You are making some refreshing Kool-Aid. The directions say to mix 3 and 1/2 cups of water with 1 cup of Kool-Aid mix.

1.Write a ratio that represents your mixture.

2.How many cups of Kool-Aid mix are needed to make a 14 cup pitcher?

This is how I grade my students’ work: I look at homework in a similar manner to how I used to train when I was competing in gymnastics. The daily practice was perfecting my skills, so I could excel during competitions. My students’ homework is an opportunity for them to perfect their skill, so they can demonstrate that they are proficient in completing the educational standards. If I fell off the rings during practice, but kept training and perfecting my skills until I could perform my routine effectively, then my training was productive. Likewise, if my students get a problem wrong, but they watch the video tutorial and fix their mistake, then they are learning, and their training is productive.

Obviously, You should grade your students’ work in a manner that fits your philosophy of teaching. I just wanted to share my philosophy on grading homework. Do with it what you will.

C Work
Students who only complete the algorithm and the mathematical model (when applicable) receive a C for their efforts. Even children who make a mistake earn a C, as long as they review their work, and fix their mistakes while watching the video tutorial.

B Work
Students who rewrite the entire problem and/or question as well as completing the algorithm and the mathematical model (when applicable) receive a B for their efforts. Once again, even children who make a mistake earn a B, as long as they review their work, and fix their mistakes while watching the video tutorial.

A Work
Students who take the time to create an illustration that goes along with the math, rewrite the entire problem and/or question as well as completing the algorithm and the mathematical model receive a A for their efforts. Once again, even children who make a mistakes earn a A, as long as they review their work, and fix their mistake while watching the video tutorial.

*I ask my students to correct in pen and write a STAR if they got the problem correct, and an SM (Small Mistake) if they made any mistakes. In this manner, I can see very quickly if one of my students needs a little extra help.

A daily Review of the Entire Year’s Educational Standards:

I have developed Assorted Stumper Problems as a means of reviewing everything that I have taught over the course of the school year. But there is more – each of the problems are designed in a manner that prepares students for the state testing. The problems within this book are similar in content and difficulty to the types of problems students will encounter during the CAASP Testing.

Need Help with Multiplication or Division?

I have a series on multiplication and another series on division that are specifically designed for children who do not have all of their multiplication facts memorized. These series are designed in a similar manner to this book, where each and every problem is linked to a video tutorial.
