Over the weekend I received an email from a reader asking me if I had a list of YouTube channels not named Khan Academy that offer mathematics lessons. I didn't have a list, but I said I would create one. Therefore, here is my short list of YouTube channels not named Khan Academy that offer mathematics lessons. WowMath.org is developed by high school mathematics teacher Bradley Robb. His YouTube channel has more than six hundred videos covering topics in Algebra and Calculus. You can access the videos on a mobile version of WowMath too.

Help students be reminded of the movement towards racial equality as they create one or two time lines. One time line is about the events and accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. The second timeline is about the progress made in America, so far, towards racial balance and equal opportunity. Students need to create correctly spaced timelines, enter the events that they find most powerful, and reflect on the speed, lags, or spacing of this progress. Students can create either timeline or they can create both timelines. Using both timelines students can make make comparisons and connections between the two timelines.
