Videos to make kids maths interesting


Linchpin Laurie has sent me these videos that some Dr Math tutors from the University of Pretoria has made.  Well done!! Its an excellent example how one can do something small, yet possibly make a huge difference. And all it took was to ask some tutors “make up some short cute funny videos for kids that are suitable for cell phones”.

Watch the videos here.

You are free to share with your kids and teacher and schools, etc.

UPDATE: Now also available on youtube!
