First, we viewed The Pre-Algebra Tutor: Volume 1 which was a true blessing for the boys since they are actually studying Pre-Algebra this year. In this 5 hour colored video tutorial, the following topics are covered……
Sect 1 – Real Numbers
Sect 2 – The Number Line
Sect 3 – Greater Than, Less Than, Equal To
Sect 4 – Absolute Value and Adding Integers
Sect 5 – Subtracting Integers
Sect 6 – Multiplying Integers
Sect 7 – Dividing Integers
Sect 8 – Powers and Exponents
Sect 9 – Order of Operations
Second, we had the opportunity to view The Texas Instruments TI-84 and TI-83 Tutor . Needless to say, I never ever understood this crazy calculator even when I owned one in High School and College. So I had a spark of interest under my belt. The only calculator that my boys were familiar with was the $1.00 one at Walmart. So I suggested to the boys to get out their Walmart calculators since we don't own one of these nifty high tech calculators. Even though we don't own a TI calculator, we learned several features on our own cheapo model. Mr. Gibson descriptively introduced us to the many features that these calculators are capable of delivering. The boys said, " WOW, this gives a whole new meaning to a calculator." So we will be saving this incredible wealth of information on this 8 hour colored DVD when the boys reach higher math. This DVD is a must for all students in High School math and higher. See demo here.
Just like the previous math tutor dvd, Mr. Gibson is the actual tutor teaching in The Texas Instruments TI-84 and TI-83 Tutor. To view all the topics that are covered in this math tutor click here. The comprehensive DVD teaches students to use all the major functions of the TI-84/TI-83 graphing calculator by working example problems.
This math tutor can be purchased for 26.99 at MathTutorDVD.com.
