VIDEO PREVIEW AVAILABLE @ http://goo.gl/DkuORc
Learning how to change an improper number to a mixed number with an animated video that will reveal a memorable mnemonic.
This is a short video (2 minutes) that shows students how to change an improper fractions to a mixed number by using a memorable mnemonic. Unfortunately the mnemonic references a restaurant that is usually only found in California. This video will ensure that students will never forget which number is the divisor and which number is the dividend. This video is great for English learners and students with learning disabilities because there are no words to read, the graphic and the sound effects will explain everything. It is short enough so that you can have your students watch it several times in class.
The video works best when you play it with no front loading. Let the students try to figure out the math on their own and then verbalize to a partner. Prior to the second example tell the students to try to come up with the answer before the video shows it to them. I like to pause the video and point out important parts as the video is playing.
The video is in mp4 format
