I use Khan Academy and YouTube, but I have to override the school district's filter for both. I haven't tried using clips from Numb3rs yet.

What videos are you using?
There are a few videos from you tube and Kahn Academy that I use.

My students have the lowest GPA's and don't want to do much.
I have to maximize everything to get the most in the shortest amount of time.

So..what is working for you?

I haven't typically shown videos in the past, but this year, I am going to try to work for a blended classroom where the students will watch most of the videos and do note-taking on their own time so class time will be for activities and homework. I have a couple of colleagues in other districts that tried it and really liked it, and my department head was at professional development with me where one of them discussed it, so I think I can get her on board to switch things up a bit! So, if clips are available on the net, they might be fair game for me this year!

My department isn't really big on showing video in general, but I do love Numb3rs, and I think if there was ever a related clip I would show it. I think if I had a classroom that was set up for video, I would maybe do so, but I currently have zero capability unless I wheel in a TV.

Hey howdy

I totally get into this show (very up my alley--inspired me restart learning algebra on my own time) after hearing Math teachers talking about it and passing the dvds around to show in their Math classes. I've heard that other teachers have used these vids, but I'm curious about you guys.

Have you guys ever used Numb3rs in class, and how did you do it? I didn't get the chance to ask how and where. I think there's a guide online, which i'm going to nab if i remember to get it later, but I wonder how students react to that.

In the meantime, i'll wait for prices to go down on 5th and 6th season to complete my collection--hee hee.
