Annual Take Your Kids to Work day at Google LA-- visit to YouTube Space!

Hi All,

Last year about this time I didn't post about the annual Take your kids to work day at Google since I got to fly out and be on Good Morning America the next day.

Yesterday I got to go with my kids and visit the Los Angeles YouTube Space. A free studio for YouTube producers to use once you have 10,000 or more subscribers.  I did get to go last year, but this year was also super fun!

The first place we went to this time was the supply room. Normally you can't go back there. This is the area where all the equipment is stored and when you go to shoot there you fill out a supply form and the attendants will stock a dolly of all the equipment ordered and you get to set it up in the studio/room you have been assigned.
Next up was seeing some of the sound rooms and green rooms, control station, audio room and we got to speak with a couple YouTubers there (Vagabrothers and SandiBalloons) .  It was a lot of fun!
YouTube producers put so much time and effort into their videos. It was amazing to see how much was going on in the YouTube Space. In fact, I'm thinking and planning to do a weekly MaTh (Math activity Thursday) video series on my Kids Math Teacher channel. So please subscribe : )

Are you excited to see what fun math activities we can do each week? What would you want to see on the videos?

One of my goals is to get to 10,000 subscribers and get to make cool cooking tutorials to put a QR code in my Pancake Menu books!  BTW, here is what my book looks like with the awesome IP Bronze award sticker!
Thanks for your support!

Nice resource for fractions and percentages!

Hi everyone,

I had mentioned DadsWorksheets before because they have great worksheets for math at many different levels! They reached out to me once again and told me about a new addition to their website and I was so thrilled to see it...

A Fraction Calculator and a Percentage Calculator!
Here is a screenshot for the Fraction one...
The best part are these resources are completely free and super easy to use!

I hope you enjoy them! Thanks DadsWorksheets for letting me know about this neat new resource so I could share it with my readers!

Want to win a class set of Kindle Fire Tablets? Math Madness competition has that among its awesome prizes!

I got this email yesterday and I was so excited to learn about it...
* * * * * * * * *

March marks the time when basketballs are flying, baskets are being scored - and students are doing math! TenMarks, an Amazon company offers free online math programs for second through twelfth graders, has kicked off its 5th annual Math Madness competition for elementary, middle, and high school teachers and students last week. The goal of this competition is, of course, to get kids excited about math! Through some friendly competition, students all across the United States compete to answer millions of math questions with grand prizes awarded to the top three classes in each group. The contest ends April 16th.

With so many students today not confident in math, participating in Math Madness helps students learn and gain mastery in math while having fun and winning prizes – in 2015, the Math Madness competition saw millions of questions answered with more than 84% accuracy!

The way it works is pretty simple – teachers sign their class up for TenMarks Math for FREE,  students solve math problems and on April 16th after a six- week period, prizes are awarded to the three classes in each group that have the highest average questions per student. Classes are grouped as follows: Group A (Grade 1-4), Group B (Grade 5-7) and Group C (Grade 8, Geometry and Algebra 1-2 or Integrated Math 1-3). This year’s grand prizes include a full classroom set of 30 Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablets, a set of 15 Amazon Fire 10 Tablets, a $500 Amazon.com gift card and weekly prizes for ice cream and pizza parties are awarded to the classes that show the most improvement.

To get the word out, I'm doing a rafflecopter giveaway and donating a copy of my book The Pancake Menu: What will you order? ($25 value) to one lucky US winner.
