Tool #3

Being able to find helpful videos for students will be an important part of my lesson. It will never be used to replace instruction, but as a supporting material. For example, I remember when I started pre-algebra and heard "combine like terms." I immediately shut my teacher out like WHY ARE THERE LETTERS ON THE BOARD?! THIS IS MATH! The way this teacher explains it is really helpful and breaks it down step-by-step!

Also, KhanAcademy is a really helpful supporting material! This video really reinforces converting decimals to fractions!

    <b>Converting decimals to fractions 1 (ex 1)</b>: Converting decimals to fractions 1 (ex 1)

Basically what I learned is that we can use some stuff online without copyrights, but that it's a good idea to attribute credit to where you got the work. I found it interesting that copy rights have no limit. I would think that it would have a term limit kind of like a patent. Feel free to copy my stuff!
