Sarah's Favorite YouTube Channels for Math

YouTube is one of my favorite resources for incorporating music and movement activities into my therapy sessions. I recently updated my post titled Sarah's 10 (now 15) Favorite YouTube Channels for Educational Songs and More. As the school year draws to a close, I'm turning to YouTube for a different reason. Math is a difficult subject for my son. With a SLP for a mother and an English teacher for a father my poor boy isn't getting much help from his parents Luckily, he loves YouTube and there are some awesome channels out there created by some very "math-minded" individuals. We are planning to utilize these channels for practice over the summer to help reinforce concepts and teach new ones.





Kahn Academy - We've used this channel several times over the past few years. It was recommended by kids' math teacher. It features thousands of videos on a variety of subjects, but the math videos are wonderful and easy to follow.





TenMarks - My kids use this program at their school so it makes sense to continue with it over the summer keep their skills fresh.

TenMarks' web-based math program is used by students across 25,000 schools and 7,000 districts. Each day, students in all 50 states use TenMarks to solve millions of math problems, improving their math skills and confidence. TenMarks believes that students learn best when they're individually engaged, nurtured, and motivated. TenMarks aims to positively impact the lives of over 20 million students by 2016.



Mathademics -  Their channel description reads: Math tutorials by qualified, creative individuals. That about sums it up (see what I did there!)






Numberphile - These guys lead by Brady Haran know how to make math fun. These videos are interesting and engaging while teaching important math concepts. It's great for those "I'm never going to use math in real life" arguments.






Math TV This is the official YouTube channel of MathTV.com. 

MathTV has over 10,000 instructional videos to help you learn everything from basic math through calculus. Each problem is worked by multiple instructors, mapped to your assigned textbook. 

What you see here is a sampling of our free videos—visit MathTV.com to see all the videos organized by topic or by textbook. 

Pat McKeague is featured on this channel. He has been teaching mathematics and writing textbooks for over 30 years. Most of his teaching experience is at the community college level, although he has taught at the elementary and high school levels, as well as at the university.


PatrickJMT I like math and I like sharing my understanding of it. 

Trying to empower people with a bit of math know-how! It IS a challenging subject but it is just so, so beautiful and amazing as well! 

No songs, no dances, no silly hats, no low cut shirts and sultry voices. I make straight, to the point videos on how to tackle different math problems. 

These videos are intended to be a supplement to what a (hopefully) good teacher is providing you with in the class room.



mathantics -Math Antics* is the work of two individuals, Rob and Jeremy, who want to make learning math a little easier for everyone. We know that many students struggle with math and that many teachers and parents need better tools to help students succeed. Our goal is to provide simple and engaging math resources that make learning math more fun for students of all ages.



Math Meeting I am civil engineering graduate from the University of Florida, but my passion is to teach math. My goal is to make as many math tutorial videos as possible. I also provide live tutoring.






The Video Math Tutor - This channel has the BEST math tutoring videos you will find anywhere. I have here my complete series of "Basic Math" lessons (i.e. Pre-Algebra) plus many helpful study tips, calculator tips, and "Brain Teasers."
