Lobato, Joanne; Walker, Carren – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Online math videos for student learning are abundant; yet they are surprisingly uniform in their monologic, expository mode of presentation and their emphasis on procedural skill. In response, we created an alternative model of online math videos that feature the unscripted dialogue of secondary school students, who convey sources of confusion and…
