This is a collection of free math videos for prealgebra level (middle school), showing varied exercises for each topic. They match Math Mammoth Grade 7 curriculum but will also work no matter which curriculum you follow (in other words, the videos don't rely on you having Math Mammoth curriculum).
Jump to:
These videos are usable for students, teachers, and parents. You can use them...
Please choose a prealgebra topic from the list below to view a video tutorial for that topic.
The topics below provide an foundation to principles used in algebra (and prealgebra).
What are expressions & equations?
Working with expressions & equations
The commutative & associative properties
(The distributive property — simple version, for grade 6)
The distributive property — regular version, for grade 7 or prealgebra
I have not made video lessons for growing patterns, but you can use this Youtube video for starters.
The other two I list below give a very mechanical way of approaching these types of pattern problems, where you don't have to think so much — but the method explained works always, so it can be helpful, especially if such a problem is expected to be on a standardized test:
However, my goal in putting the growing pattern problems in Math Mammoth Grade 7 is NOT to teach students a mechanical way, but just give them some exposure to thinking of different ways to SEE the pattern, and then try to express it using symbols. So there is no need to learn the mechanical way.
