Comparing Fractions Using 1/2 As A Benchmark
Elementary students are required to compare fractions in order to determine which of two fractions are the larger number. This can be confusing because fractions are not whole numbers. It is possible to use "1/2" as a way to figure out which fraction is larger. In this video I demonstrate the method. A special thanks to Ben for suggesting this topic!

Solving Division Equations
Solving division equations can be easy when you remember to use multiplication to get the variable by itself on one side of the equation. But don't forget...what you do to the left side of an equation, you must also do to the right. Balance is the key to solving any equation.

Types of Data - Two examples of Graphing
4th and 5th grade elementary students will often begin the school year working with graphs. But what type of graph should be used? It all depends on the data. Here is a quick video discussing continuous vs. discrete data. I'll tell you what it is and which type of graph to use for each. Comments and questions are welcome.

Partial Quotients Example
A lot of parents have trouble understanding some of the newer strategies for division. If this strategy helps your student to compute you should encourage them to use it. The best strategy is the one that yields the right answer but also helps the learner understand why it's the right answer!

Understanding Balanced Equations
Balanced equations become easy to understand when they are compared to a balance scale. It is necessary for students to see that the equal sign like the center needle on the balance. This way it doesn't matter if the equation is written 2+5=7 or 7=2+5. Both sides remain equal. Order of Operations Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3XgVIuChCI

Solving Addition Equations Using Subtraction
In this video I demonstrate using the subtraction property of equality to solve a basic addition equation. This simple method helps students understand how to solve a balance equation by using the inverse property (in this case subtraction). I hope this video helps you to understand this principle!

Long Division Old School Method
Have you ever thought "Why can't they just teach division like I learned in school", you're not alone. Actually the same method is being taught but in a way that will help kids understand how and why it works. And understanding is always better than just memorizing. Take a look ... sometimes you can teach an old dog new tricks.

Order of Operations
When expressions have more than one operation such as "(5+7) x (2-1)". there are certain rules that we need to follow in order to solve this expression. Those rules are called, "The Order of Operations." In this video, I explain a simple memory method to help remember what parts of the expression to work on first and in which order.

Solving Multiplication Equations Using Division
This video shows how simple it can be to solve a multiplication equation using the inverse operation of division. The most important thing to remember is to do the same division on BOTH sides of the equation. This problem isn't hard to solve in your head, which is fine, because the point is to learn how to write out the solution. They won't always be this simple!

30 Second Quick-Tip: Show Your Work!
As a teacher, I always remind my students how important it is to show their work while doing math. Two reasons! First, it allows the students to practice solving math problems - even when they may be able to do the work in their head. Secondly, it allows the teacher to see what the student is doing. That way, if corrections or help needs to be offered the teacher can help.
