Two wonderful products from Math Tutor DVD recently arrived in my mailbox: Young Minds Numbering and Counting and The Basic Math Word Problem Tutor. The kids were excited to have 2 products that they ALL could enJOY!
First we watched, the award-winning, Young Minds: Numbers and Counting What a fun, delightful video! My little girls (5 & 2) loved it! The intended purpose of the dvd is to teach young children numbers and counting up to 10, but it also teaches many animal sounds (REAL animal sounds-not animated), colors, names of objects, and action words...all set to a background of classical music! The graphics are vivid and feature real pictures of animals, flowers, & nature objects. We are a 'nature loving' family, so the nature pictures in the dvd were a big hit. My 5-year-old already knows her numbers, colors, objects and sounds well, so she pretended to be my 2-year-old's teacher and enjoyed pointing to the numbers and counting along. Overall, we like it and it's a great dvd to use in our preschool corner. This dvd is $19.99 and you can purchase it HERE.
The 2nd item we reviewed was The Basic Math Word Problem Tutor. This is an excellent *8 hour* instructional dvd set [2 dvds]! It is not 'fancy' by any means...a simple white board is the only prop, but the instructor, Jason Gibson, does a great job of walking you through each problem step-by-step. The dvd set is broken up into 15 teaching topics, which makes it is easy to skip to the exact area you need to cover. Each segment is short and easy to work into your daily math time.
Here are the 15 topics covered:
Section 1: Adding Whole Numbers
Section 2: Subtracting Whole Numbers
Section 3: Multiplying Whole Numbers
Section 4: Dividing Whole Numbers
Section 5: Adding Decimals
Section 6: Subtracting Decimals
Section 7: Multiplying Decimals
Section 8: Dividing Decimals
Section 9: Adding Fractions
Section 10: Subtracting Fractions
Section 11: Multiplying Fractions
Section 12: Dividing Fractions
Section 13: Percents, Part 1
