This site contains instructional videos for an online course. These videos introduce important topics such as power formula, energy calculation, vectors, and basic vector properties.
Type of Material:
This site can be used in class or at home. The examples in videos can be used as suggested homework problems for practice. Video lectures can be used as a prerequisite review for other higher level courses in math, physics, and engineering.
Works on all browsers including smart phones and does not require plug-ins, Java, HTML, and Flash.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
A major learning goal of this videos collection is two introduce students to basic mathematical concepts and to show how this concepts can be used in various physics and engineering applications.
Target Student Population:
First year mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering students.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Basic Math Skills and a Pre-Calculus course.
Material covered in each video is explained very well. In addition to the lecture part the site contains many insightful examples for each topic. The videos of this site use the four important steps (Given, Known, Find, and Solution) to solve any mathematical and physics problem.
This site does not provide lecture notes for each video. It would be better to have lecture notes in the site supporting each video. Having a short written introduction above the video of each topic would be a definite plus.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This site can be used by students to review all fundamental concepts for math, physics, and engineering courses. Students can also use the videos of this site as a review before doing their assignments and projects. Instructors can utilize this site as a source of supplementary material for basic math and physics classes.
There are no sample homework or practice quizzes in this site to give students an opportunity to apply what they learned from the given topics.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
The site has a very minimalistic design and is very simple to navigate. Clicking on a video link is all that is required.
Other Issues and Comments:
