Are you looking for some free and helpful resources for your flipped math classroom?
In a time when learning via online video tutorials and lectures has become commonplace, the flipped math model is rapidly gaining popularity in K-12 classrooms—and for good reason.
If you are not familiar with the flipped math model, Mike Acedo’s blog 10 Pros and Cons of a Flipped Classroom is a good place to start. Acedo sums up the flipped model nicely here:
The main goal of a flipped classroom is to enhance student learning and achievement by reversing the traditional model of a classroom, focusing class time on student understanding rather than on lecture. To accomplish this, teachers post short video lectures online for students to view at home prior to the next class session. This allows class time to be devoted to expanding on and mastering the material through collaborative learning exercises, projects, and discussions. Essentially, the homework that is typically done at home is done in the classroom, while the lectures that are usually done in the classroom are viewed at home.
When it comes to finding video lectures for your flipped math classroom, there are tons of helpful free resources for awesome video content.
