Geometry Chapter 1: Foundations for Geometry

Geometry is like fancy Algebra I. 

If you're good at solving multi-step equations, you'll probably be able to do well in Geometry. 

So if you don't know how to do that, you should watch this then return. 

Here's the first chapter of full lessons of the Geometry courtesy of the 2008 version of me.

Hope this helps.

Math Bell Ringers // Week 2

I've said it once but I'll say it again...

If you're teaching math to any kid 7th grade(ish) or up, these videos will be SUPER helpful. 

Here's how I'd play it:

IF YOU'RE TEACHING IN A ONE-TO-ONE ENVIRONMENT... one of these each day next week to your Google Classroom (or class site), starting 30 minutes before your school day. I'd post them now and schedule them so you don't have to worry about going and finding them every morning. They'll post at whatever time you schedule them. Have the students show their work/answers on a piece of paper and then have them pass them up at the end of the video. Do with them what you wish. 

IF YOUR STUDENTS DON'T HAVE DEVICES BUT YOU HAVE A TV/SMARTBOARD/BIG OLE SCREEN CONNECTED TO A COMPUTER... soon as the tardy bell rings, start this video. It'll give you time to take attendance, get yourself together, and/or talk to any individual students you need to address that may have missed the day before. Then do the pass up then look at then throw away thing and start teaching.
