    1. Khan Academy

    Grades: K thru College
    My personal favorite, Khan Academy, is a non-profit organization that has informational videos on just about any topic. Their videos range from K thru college levels. The voice of the videos is that of Sal Khan, the founder of Khan Academy. He takes a very casual approach and isn’t afraid to make mistakes, back up, and fix them. I really like this approach because it gets into the mind of the viewer, allowing them to hear the thought process out loud. The one con of these videos is that they are not really visually appealing. If you have learners that need the extra engagement through graphics and sound effects, these videos might not be for you. To give it a try, click here.

    2. YouTube

    Grades: K thru College
    YouTube is another great resource to utilize for finding online math lessons. The benefit of YouTube is that practically anyone is able to create a math lesson and upload it to the internet. The downside is also that practically anyone can create a video and upload it to the internet. If you choose to browse math lessons on YouTube, be sure to watch the video the entire way through. After awhile, you may find educators that are trustworthy enough that you subscribe to their channel. I would also note that not all schools allow the viewing of YouTube videos on in school. If this is the case, talk to your tech department about gaining access. To get started, you can click here!

    3. TeacherTube

    Grades: Mainly Middle/High School
    TeacherTube is another video hosting site created by a veteran teacher. While anyone can create and upload a video, they have a strategic rating system in place that other teachers are encouraged to use. If a video is found inaccurate, it may be flagged and taken down which has helped to keep the integrity of the site. Their archive of math lessons is small compared to YouTube, but it is worth bookmarking so you can check back as videos are uploaded regularly. You can check it out by clicking here.

    4. TedEd

    Grades: Mainly Middle/High School
    TedEd has so many intriguing videos for you and your students. A quick search shows videos ranging from “Can You Solve the Giant Iron Riddle?” to “Why Can’t you Divide by Zero?” These may not be right for your main lesson, but be sure to visit this site if you’re looking for a good hook or want to problem solve on a rainy day!

    5. slideshare

    Grades: K thru College
    Slideshare is a hosting website in which users are able to upload content as presentations, infographics, documents or videos. I have found this to be the least user friendly but there is still so much content on the website that it is worth a quick search. There is no “math” category – your best bet is to just do a quick search on the topic you are looking for and see if anything catches your eye. Go ahead and take a look here.

    6. Taylor J’s Math Materials

    Grades: 7 and 8
    Yes, this is my very own collection of videos. As I write this article, I am four units into my 8th grade curriculum. You can find a list of all videos here. My goal is to give clear and concise math tutorials on very specific objectives. I use real-life hooks and graphics when applicable. If you teach 8th grade, it is definitely worth a look!
