Calculus in Plain English–Volume 2

I have a lot of stuff to blog about, but so little time! Here is a tidbit: “Calculus in Plain English” is back!!!  I am teaching AP Calc AB this semester, and I only have 5 students in the class.  They will be making videos for each unit we cover.  Here is their first– “Limits in Plain English”.

BlanchetBlog regulars will notice that this is my first non-TeacherTube video. I am currently making the transition to Vimeo. It has its drawbacks (slow upload), but TeacherTube has become so bloated with ads and everything else but videos, that I have finally decided to try other sites. I would like to give SchoolTube a try, too. Since YouTube is blocked by our school system, I will always be searching for a good alternative for video sharing. Vimeo seems to be getting the job done for now.
I am very proud of my students and their first video. I know their next, “Derivatives in Plain English”, will be even better. Stay tuned!!!

  1. YAY, so glad we made your blog. I like doing the videos, i think it makes our class fun and lets us learn the topics in depth!! 😀 😀

  2. i enjoyed working on the video. it was fun working with my classmates and coming up with creative ways to teach limits. i also used the computer as technology to edit the video. it taught me great editing tools and skills i could use later on in a later project.

  3. I have started using Kaltura as a video server. Upload your video, Kaltura creates an embed code and move it to your blog. No adds or blocks. I teach special ed and my students have made videos about how to use a calculator or figuring out net pay. Teaching someone else is a great way to learn.
