Math Tutorial Videos

I guess I'm kind of "video happy" this week, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The videos you see below will help with classwork and homework tonight and in the future.

In math we are working on multiplication of larger numbers (examples: 23 x 8 and 39 x 67). We are learning a new method of solving these problems, one you probably didn't learn when you were a kid. It's called Partial Products Multiplication and it involves breaking down the numbers into their parts and then multiplying those parts. Then you combine the parts back together to get your final answer.

Reading about it doesn't do much good, probably, so here's two videos that demonstrate the steps of the process:
