I decided that I want to start getting more on my class blogs - especially now that we have access to Youtube at school and can access different videos.
So yesterday in Algebra 2, after covering Completing the Square, I decided to try and find a video to back me up. I posted this one, which is probably the most boring thing ever... but I honestly couldn't find one I liked any better.
In Precalc today we were graphing transformations of sine and cosine graphs. Again, I wanted the kids to have an opportunity to see it explained again. I checked YouTube and this time found nothing I liked. Zilch. I had a little bit of free time when no one showed up for tutoring (surprise!) so I made a screencast. I had some issues with Jing on my computer and couldn't get Screentoaster to work, so I ended up using screencast-o-matic.
Aside from hating hearing my own voice talking to me (how do the kids put up with it every day?!) I think it turned out ok. And it only took one take!
