The math that we are doing now in elementary school looks so different from the math that we learned when we were students. In all honesty, if I weren't a teacher with exposure to the new style of math I would have not even the faintest clue on where to begin with some of these methods. I have created a YouTube channel with short videos with me explaining how to do math using the different styles that the students are learning in class. It is currently a work in progress, so there aren't many videos yet, but more are coming. I have given students instructions on how to get to the channel. Here is the link to go to the channel. I would even reccomend subscribing to the channel so it is easy to find without having to come back to this page first to get to the link:
