Teaching a skill like multiplication? Try a GIF and a YouTube video. Post them in Google Classroom.

The way we learn math is different for us all. Some get it right away, many need manipulatives, while others just need to see the problem and the solution over and over and over again.

For the students previously mentioned (or me as a student), a GIF and a YouTube video of the same GIF can be of tremendous help.

Below you will see a GIF that was created using Google Drawings and Snagit to capture the video. Snagit is helpful as it can make any video you capture (20 seconds or less) into a GIF as well as send it to Google Drive and or YouTube.

The video below is the same as the GIF - but it has sound.

Take care,
