I <3 Math was produced for PBS LearningMedia by KornhaberBrown, with the support of Beth Daniels.
This video series introduces key Common Core concepts in 4th-8th grade mathematics. Each video focuses on building conceptual understanding of a topic, so that students understand the “how” and “why” behind mathematical problem solving.
Use these videos with your students as topical introductions to topics including integers, the concept of ratios, unit rates, percent, and division with fractions.
This I <3 Math episode introduces students to integers and how we use them in the real world. It defines the difference between positive and negative numbers and how these numbers can be represented on a number line.
This episode of I <3 Math introduces students to the ratio concept and language. The episode provides real world examples to define a ratio as a comparison of two quantities.
This episode of I <3 Math combines the concepts of division and fractions to demonstrate division with fractions by fractions. The video shows students how to apply division of fractions for problem solving.
This episode of I <3 Math establishes the concept of division with fractions by illustrating how to divide fractions by whole numbers, and how to divide whole numbers by fractions.
This episode of I <3 Math introduces the concept of unit rates. The video illustrates unit rates as a number of units for every one unit of another quantity.
This episode of I <3 Math presents multistep ratio and percent problems to illustrate the concept of percent as a rate. The video uses real-world comparisons to convert rates into equivalent percentages.
