These lessons are brief video clips that I have taken in places that I have visited around the world. I love to show students that math occurs everywhere! The questions that I pose in these videos are intended to either hook students into a specific area of math or be used as a warm-up after a particular skill is mastered. They will require the students to make inferences and possibly conduct a bit of research. I hope you enjoy them!
