Virtual Nerd: Real maths help for learners

Virtual Nerd: Real maths help for learners | technologies | Scoop.it
Virtual Nerd's patent-pending tutorial system provides in-context information, hints, and links to supporting tutorials, synchronized with videos, each 3 to 7 minutes long. In this non-linear system, users are free to take whatever path through the material best serves their needs. These unique features make Virtual Nerd a viable alternative to private tutoring.
John Dalziel's insight:

Although VirtualNerd is aimed at middle school and high school mathematics learners, it is also ideal for older learners who need support in Functional Skills for example.
Users can select a maths subject area and start to refine their topic by skill and strand.
Once users have identified the information they need help with, they have access to view a brief, visual video explaining exactly how to solve the problem or understand the concept.
What's impressive is how specific VirtualNerd gets.
Learners can spend hours online searching for tutorials on how to do certain problems.
With VirtualNerd, the time spend searching is significantly reduced so that learners can quickly find what they're looking for and get to work applying their knowledge.
I'd say it's a "must check the site out" for practitioners; if only to see how user-friendly the resources are and providing a model for their own resource creation(s).

Math@Work: Connecting Math to 21st Century Careers | technologies | Scoop.it
Scholastic's Math@Work is a web series that ties students' classroom learning to their career aspirations. Don't miss our premiere webisode on fashion design, featuring Project Runway's Tim Gunn!
John Dalziel's insight:

Math@Work is a video series from Scholastic. The seven part series shows learners how maths is used in fashion design.
Even if learners don't have any interest in fashion design, showing them a clip or two from this series could be good way to get them to start thinking about how mathematics appears in career fields that they might not expect.
Functional Skills may be more engaging for learners if they are challenged to find other careers that incorporate mathematics even though it might not be obvious.
