'Boom Boom Pow' video is the follow-up to our 'pi r squared' video last year, which the students really enjoyed. With our latest release we were looking to tackle an area that continuously trips students up... adding and subtracting fractions.
In particular, students get confused thinking which method to use where; the aim of this video is to show one technique for any addition/subtraction question and show how it differs from the methods for multiplication/division. All this is done to the tune 'Boom Boom Pow', which hopefully will make it stick in listeners minds!!
As teachers at a Science and Maths specialism school we place a real importance on teaching mathematical topics in different, innovative ways and we think this is one way of making students enjoy their Mathematics.
