Why U

Material for mathematics courses on the K-12 and college levels

Why U animated videos are designed as collateral material for mathematics courses on the K-12 and college levels, and as a resource for informal independent study. Rather than focusing on procedural problem solving, the objective is to give insight into the concepts on which the rules of mathematics are based.

Why U creators are currently working on the series of animated lectures entitled “Algebra”.…
