    Thank you for sharing this resource. We’re very interested to take a look as we’ve done similar videos focused on very young children. http://earlymath.erikson.edu/series/focus-on-th...

    How were you able to measure changes in attitudes and beliefs in teachers? What measures did you use?

    Your videos were GREAT! Thank you for sharing! We primarily used a self-reported likert-scale measure we designed ourselves that asked questions about their beliefs and efficacy about mathematics.

    Your video made me quite eager to see www.cmlvideos.com, but the connection times out and the page doesn’t load. Is this a temporary glitch?

    I’m intrigued by the idea of illustrating for teachers what is hard for a teacher to have the time and attention to see while working and in charge of a whole class, and I’m eager to see the products of your work so far.

    There is not an issue with the video page. Please try again. Maybe use a different browser or computer if you are having a hard time accessing the videos. Please let me know if this helps.

    Oh, wow! I did try today on both browsers and it works fine. I wonder what was happening yesterday. Anyway, thanks much. I’m quite eager to look at the videos! More later when I’ve had a chance to watch. And sorry if I got you alarmed!

    I wonder if you’ve done any work or included any videos that present students working under a common misconception? I think this would be particularly interesting for teachers as they can think through how to anticipate some of the possible approaches?

    This is a really wonderful resource, I’m looking forward to exploring it! As I watched your video, I was particularly curious about how you used these with parents. What forms did this take? That is, were they shown at PTA meetings or math nights at school? Did you recruit a set of parents to come to your location and watch and discuss the videos? Were there a set of prompts that you used to help parents know what they were looking for?

    Thank you for your positive comment! We actually sent a letter home at a local school to two classrooms as a pilot study. We were excited to learn that 15 parents from those two classrooms watched a minimum of 2 videos on the site and provided feedback. We asked them about their beliefs about how children learn math and also about how they helped them with homework. One of the results we received indicated that most parents are involved in helping their children with math homework and that the videos were helpful in understanding how children think about math (which is many times different from adults). I love your idea of having a dedicated time to show and discuss the videos so we will have to try that.

    This is so interesting. It seems like a wonderful way to promote the home-school partnership. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a great resource, thank you for sharing! I was wondering if you could share a bit more about how you used these videos with preservice teachers, were they something that preservice teachers watched during a mathematics methods course? Thanks!
