Free Math Videos for Kids Tackling Math Problems

April 22, 2020

Multimedia resources can support students learning math in school and at home. Earlier this year, I came across Blutick, a learning platform powered by artificial intelligence. They are now offering free math videos for kids and curriculum support for teachers.

In this blog post, I’ll tell you all about Blutick and how you can access their resources for free. They’ve made their math learning platform free for schools that are impacted by the current public health crisis. Both teachers and families can set tasks and monitor student progress, making it particularly useful during shifts to remote learning.

Free Math Videos and Support

Blutick is a math learning platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help students get the support they need in real-time. As you can see in the video below, Blutick provides math videos and worked examples for students. They can see different problems in action and work through examples. The AI built into Blutick helps make sure students have “just right” resources and support when they need it.

How does it work? Students work within Blutick to solve problems. They receive feedback when they make mistakes and can take action right away. In real-time, they’ll see when students make errors and how to tackle things that might feel like a challenge.

Teacher and Family Support

Families and teachers can set and review tasks for students. They can set up homework and classwork for students, and that work will be marked automatically reviewed. Teachers can then get feedback on a student’s progress and intervene as needed.

One strong feature of Blutick’s platform is the role families play. Families receive an email with a video that explains how to best support their children. This video describes a concept and gives them a sense of what their children are working on in Blutick. Families can also check their child’s progress and get an understanding of their growth and current needs.

Using Math Videos

Blutick uses a combination of math videos, artificial intelligence, and data to support students learning new math concepts. The video content available to students is concise and targeted, so students can watch a video that is just a few minutes long as they explore or review a math concept. 

As you can see in the demo video above, the artificial intelligence provides line-by-line feedback. It is specific, and actionable so students can review it and use it right away. Although AI is very powerful, I like how Blutick acknowledges that it is only part of the puzzle. Teachers and families can still access data with information they can use to support students further.

Remote Learning Math Resource

Although Blutick is a popular classroom resource, it fits well into remote learning initiatives. Students can work independently using Blutick, and the personalized nature of the platform lends itself well to situations where students might work remotely. A teacher (or family member) can register here and set up their students or children with the support that is “just right” for them.

If you are looking for something to include in a distance learning initiative, I would definitely take a look at this tool. It provides support tailored to the needs of individual students. Families who may not be able to help their middle or high school students solve challenging math problems can depend on the AI to help their children get the help they need. 

Blutick usually comes with a price tag, but right now, it is free for schools impacted by the current public health crisis. This free offer is good until at least September of this year, with the possibility of extending it for schools even further. Use this link to register today!
