One more fraction video to share

The video math tutor has another fraction video that I like.  Great visuals and some humor make this video a winner.  It is a long one over 27 minutes, but take a look and use part or all of it as another method to make your fraction content comprehensible for all students!

Let me know what you think of the video math tutor!

Math Vocabulary List by Grade Level

Hi everyone,
I was poking around and found a couple of great resources for Math Vocabulary by Grade level.  The first one is a PDF I was sent sometime ago.  Unfortunately, I don't know who to credit.

The second one is from Salem-Keizer and this site has a great Math Vocabulary page with definitions!
