    Mapping COTR to Khan Academy

    Has anyone mapped out Khan Academy videos that correlate to COTR lessons? I'm thinking about doing this so we can keep a more consistent pace in COTR (we're only getting to about 3 lessons a week right now). But, I thought I'd check first to see if anyone else has done this so I'm not reinventing the wheel!

      I am going to offer a “don’t think so, so go for it!” vote. Great idea, and will be very helpful for others though!

        Only problem is that I only took the first part of pre-Algebra in high school (it wasn’t required to have algebra to graduate at the time). So I’m not sure which titles on KA are talking about which topics in COTR!

          Ha! Sounds like you will need to keep a running list of what you find helpful over the year, and share it for others’ benefit when you finish

            That was exactly my problem, I couldn't use the videos to find topics needed cause I didn't
            even know what was what- unless it happened to call concept exactly the same thing as the COTR book did. I found some good videos on Math Antics. Also here: https://www.mathmammoth.com/videos/p...bra-videos.php

            I wish I could help you. We often just google search topics and hope someone, somewhere called it the same thing. Kahn is great, but I find it hard to find topics.

              Hi Dianna! Thanks for paging me.

              Jennifer, this is a great idea, and I am sure others will find your results helpful.

              When you cannot find your lesson topic on Khan Academy, try googling the lesson name and see if other topics come up. Then enter those in the Khan Academy search tool. I would focus on the pre-algebra section of Khan Academy.
              For example, google: signed numbers
              Or: Khan Academy lesson about signed numbers

              If signed numbers is not yielding results, try "positive and negative numbers" or "arithmetic with positive and negative numbers" or "operations with positive and negative numbers".

                Hi Jenn,
                I just received this email from Khan Academy. I will reply with request for COTR mapping. Will let you know what they come up with!

                Hi Cindy Davis,

                We know how busy you are, so we’re curious: Would you be interested in getting a textbook-aligned guide to help you easily find Khan Academy exercises, videos, and articles?

                Such a guide would align Khan Academy resources to the chapters and sections of your textbook. You’d get previews of exercises, videos and question types so finding resources to match your lessons would be a snap!

                If you’re interested in getting a free, textbook based guide, please complete this short form.

                Yes! I’d like a textbook aligned-guide for Khan

                Thank you!

                    Hi Dorinda,
                    No, I don't know if they have aligned any textbooks yet. If you are interested in a particular text, I suggest you send the folks at Khan Academy a request. Perhaps we will gain some helpful tools!

                      Dorinda,
                      You asked what I was also thinking....hmmm....I wonder if Khan would do some aligning with that Jurgensen Geometry text! We LOVE (LOVE!) Khan. I am so impressed with Sal and his vision that led him to bring Khan Academy as far as he has, and his vision for what he sees it becoming one day. We especially love his voice and teaching style. He's so engaging! I am going to reach out to them about this math textbook alignment question.

                            Hi Sarah,
                            I have not heard whether Khan Academy mapped their videos to COTR (or any other pre-algebra textbook).

                            Could you describe how you are struggling? Are the MP lesson plans confusing? COTR lesson explanations not making sense?

                            If you can give specific examples, some folks on the forum may be able to jump in with assistance.

                            You could have your child begin working through the Khan Academy pre-algebra videos and practice problems from the beginning. As he works his way through the basics, he may gain understanding that will help him work through the COTR lessons.

                              My daughter is using Khan Academy with COTR Pre-algebra. Actually, she is doing it from the start. It is a good review and fills in gaps in understanding and builds her confidence.

                              I do find COTR a big jump from Rod and Staff Grade 6. She did well with Rod and Staff. THe pacing in early chapters in COTR is fast with jumping right into negative numbers and lengthy variable expressions in first three chapters. This was not really covered in RS 6, in my memory. I think it will benefit her greatly in the long run. Algebra 1 should be an easier jump for us. A lot is new material briefly introduced and then applied in more advanced ways quickly. I sit with her for every example problem. We work through them side by side with individual white boards or paper and pencil. Then, I assign the problem set. We usually break that into two days. We are doing it bit by bit, thoroughly and slowly. I think it'll be worth it in the long run.
