Using Facebook and YouTube to Teach Math

Who poo-poohs social media for teaching and learning? Not I ...

Seabury alum Ben Rogers uses Facebook, along with his website Crewton Ramone's House of Math to get the word out about his super simple method of learning math.

And, Ben is putting up simple and effective lessons on YouTube, like this one about making change for $100.00, and (the formerly dreaded) nine times tables:

"Using Addends to make change for $100.00 & multiply by nines"


Who says social media and education don't mix very well?
Not I ...

Bravo, Ben!
