Learning Maths with 4KM and 4KJ

We were recently inspired by the work of our blogging buddies in B4. These students from New Zealand made some maths videos with their teacher, Mrs McKenzie. When 4KM and 4KJ saw the videos they decided they’d like to make their own.

All of the students chose a topic that we had covered this term in our maths classes.

We came up with some tips for making a maths video that teaches the audience something.

Some of our tips were:

  • Introduce yourself
  • Talk about the learning focus
  • Define new words
  • Give an example
  • Solve your problem step-by-step
  • End with a tip/farewell message
  • Speak clearly and loudly
  • Use kid-friendly language
  • Do things slowly

Some students found that being a teacher isn’t as easy as it looks, but everyone did a great job and had fun making their videos!

We are on holidays now for two weeks. We will be back on Monday 8th October.
