    This tool reminds me of Dan Meyer and his 3 Acts lessons. Anytime I use one of his activities, the kids ask if it is me in the video. That simple question alone speaks volumes about just how powerful a video can be for students. It draws them in. They spend hours watching Tik Toks of normal people doing dumb stuff, so why not watch their math teacher introducing a math problem? This lesson reminds me of the chocolate-eating video we started with – fairly low-tech with tremendous upside and buy-in.

    The challenge is to get the math off of a worksheet or textbook page and one simple 30-second video filmed on a cell phone works well.
