Here are some videos about math. What are interesting to you? What do you notice?

Abbot and Costello (Video 1)


Ma and Pa Kettle (Video 2)



Our First Unit (Video 3)



Commercials and Math? (Video 4)


Please leave a comment behind. In the comment tell me what you think about the videos and what math you see in each one. Remember this is a math class. Don't just say that "the video is funny!"

Great videos! Where did you find them?

I thought the Abbott and Costello and Ma and Pa Kettle vid's were great lead in's for multiplication/division rules and how they relate. Patterns can also be explained here as well. Eg. multiples.

Thx. for letting me check your site out!

Thanks for your comments. I found them using the simple search on Youtube looking for math videos.

i thought these videos were funny

they mostly show multiplication and division rules and how they relate. There are also some patterns in the videos

i loved Abbot and costello..i thought it showed problem solving, multiplication and divions very well. This video made me think about what they were doing right and wrong. :)

i think the videos were great ! i think the first two videos showed how you can make mistakes and how you can do it the right way . the other two videos were about probability and how things are almost impossible to happen

The first two videos are showing how some people make mistakes when dividing and multiplying. In the videos they treated the tens place as the ones place also, so they kept arguing about which is the right answer. In the rest of the videos, they showed what the probability of different situations. Probability is basically the chances of something to happen.

I thought those videos were great! The two old school ones are interesting because the people in there use multiplication and division in a way that looks more smarter (: I thought the probability videos were cool. The small snippets in the probability video show how some things are impossible.

the two videos shows you that people can be wrong sometimes in dividing..and it shows that there is many different ways to divide.

the first two videos were about the same. they both showed how everyone can make simple mistakes while multiplying and dividing. i liked the last probability video on how those things were unlikely to happen. all the videos were great!

i thought that the 2 videos are funny. The first is the one i really like because mostly because they speak funny. and the other two is the one about probability. i liked it because it shows you how much percent something can happen/

hi im from your grade8 math class i thought that there are 2 ways of doing that question and they both only think there is one way.

i thought that the first two videos were very good at show how to multiply/divide the right and wrong way

I think it's funny . And your 2 videos was kinda wrong the two people doing multiplication and division.

Abbott and costello is really funny even though i cant understand them. these videos show some kinds of mathematics.

video 1 and 2 shows thier mistake of divding and video 3 and 4 talks about probability the chance its going to happen.

i thought the videos were pretty funny, even though it would never happen in real life.

for the videos 3 and 4 i think its a good examples to show how probability works. :)

I thought that the first two videos were interesting in seeing how people can prove that their answer was right even though it was wrong.

And for the last two videos, I thought they were also interesting because it shows how very dangerous events can be safe in

i think #1, 2 video was good because it tells you how you can do random stuff with math. And # 3 4 is how the probability can happen in real life. 8-17 a boy that is carlo

Hi!

The first two videos show you that people can divide and multiply COMPLETELY wrong and that the up and down way of math can be confusing.

The last two videos mention probability.

Bye!

These videos were okay. I liked the one with the tire, It was cool how they showed how things aren't always impossible. I thought the same through the Abbott and Costello videos too. It shows that there are more than one way to get answers we just need to try them.

the abbot and costello videos were alright. i found it funny how they kept trying to prove their point even thought they were wrong.

wow ... ummm... good vidz.

hahahaha, that was funny :)
so anyway how did they get that for dividing but how did that work out when they where trying to figure out the problem ?

Lol that car thing was funny with the tires. That video showed probability in math.

i liked the abbot and costello vid

I thought the Abbott and Costello, and Ma and Pa Kettle videos were ok, it does go to show you the mistakes you can make in multiplication and division.

The last two videos were good, they were all about probability and how unlikely it is for those things to happen.

I thought that Abbott and Costello and Ma and Pa Kettle really taught you about how you really need to know every step of division or else you will be completely wrong.

Some of the video's were sort of funny. But most wasn't much of my comedy likings .

I've never thought that math can be funny

In the first video the guy got it all mixed up he is doing it all wrong. He can be so stupid.
the 2nd video Ma and Pa are both stupid becuse they are forgeting the steps. the 3 video was pretty funny but I doubt that any one would ever flip a coin that high.
the 4th video was soo crazy because
all of those things are so unexpecting.

the ones on probability are so funny. its weird how they would get everything bullet proofed, and not get an alarm of some sort.

the aboot and costello video reminded me of how i divided the first time i was taught division

i thought the videos were funny. but the first two show the mistakes of multiplication and division . the last two videos show about probability of landing a coin and a bullet .

I liked the abbot and costello oe because it is funny and i shows how easy it is to mix up when dividing or multiplying.
