Yah Math

Cross, Maths, Multiply, XToday, I stumbled across a site called Yah Math. It offers videos, worksheets and quizzes for certain mathematical topics.  The site has materials for Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Statistics, and Trigonometry.  Although their videos are on Youtube, you can still access them through the site successfully.

When you click on the class, you go to the page that shows you the topics and recommended order of presentation.  If you click on the individual topic, they give a suggestion of the order of material and a basic lesson plan.

The videos range in length from 10 to 40 min for each video.  There are 24 videos for Algebra I, around 30 for Algebra II, just over 45 Geometry videos, 3 for Trig and 12 for Statistics and a lone video on credit card interest.  Furthermore, all videos have a worksheet.  The worksheet has every example worked in the video so students can fill it out as they watch the video. followed by a quiz.

The quiz is a multiple choice quiz that requires a name and e-mail to take.  Once the quiz is finished, it is submitted and instantly graded telling which questions are correct and wrong.  In addition, the site even shows the correct answer.  I don't think there is a way for you as the teacher to access student responses but it is a good way to 

I  like this site because it could easily be used in a flipped or blended classroom so students take the worksheet home, watch the video, then take the quiz so they know what they still need to work on.  It would also work so if students miss a class they can watch the material and fill out the worksheet so they can catch up.

So many possibilities and just in time to use in several of my classes.  Go explore it and have fun.
