Numbery Videos Exploring the Mysteries of Math!
WHAT'S TO LOVE
Does most every number have a 3 in it? Is EVERY possible number no matter how big, found somewhere in the infinite digits of Pi? These math puzzles are sure to wake up your Math class or inspire your dinner conversation.
Numberphile videos are an easy way to insert Minds-On learning into the traditional math curriculum. The math challenges presented at the beginning of many of the videos make for a great classroom math exploration and since they feel like puzzles, kids are excited to work on them.
Click on "text index" on the Numberphile homepage to see a quick description of each video. Some videos start with a clear Minds-On math challenge that is more interactive while others are fascinating, but passive, presentations. Numberphile does not provide lesson plans around the videos, but some teachers have built out lessons using Numberphile videos on Ted-Ed, so check there by searing for “Numberphile”. There's a million ways to work these videos into the classroom- once a week view a video as a class and discuss, invite students to pick a video and use it to teach a classmate something magical about math, direct students who finish work early to work through the Numberphile videos.
