**The Learning Journey**

In this video, Mrs. June gives students "3 Big Questions" that can help them become excellent learners. This is a useful video for helping you learn better in any class or in life.

**Questions to ask yourself before viewing:**

- Do you consider yourself to be a good learner? Why or why not?
- What makes something difficult for you to learn?
- What is something you hope to learn how to do in the near future? This could be something for school or something in real life.

**Identifying Your Next Step - Part 2 of The Learning Journey**

In this second part of our series, Mrs. June looks at how to figure out your next step in becoming an excellent learner. She starts with two of those "3 Big Questions" from Part 1 and how your answers to them might help you decide out what to do next.

**Questions to ask yourself before viewing:**

- Did you watch Part 1 yet? If not, start there.
- What are some important ways learning is like taking a long hike?
- Think of something you don't know much about or something you don't know how to do, but that might be interesting. How would you start to learn about that if you had no teacher to help you out?
- Why is it important to identify your next step?

**Identifying Your Next Step - Part 3 of The Learning Journey**

Make learning an exciting adventure! In this final part of our series, Mrs. June shows how to use the third Big Question to find your next step. There's also a summary at the end for how to use all three Big Questions.

**Questions to ask yourself before viewing:**

- Did you watch Parts 1 and 2 yet? If not, start there.
- What were the four possible answers to the question
**What is my progress like right now?** - Why doesn't it really help when you tell someone you're stuck and they just give you the answer?
- Why is it important to identify your next step?

**Thinking About Positive and Negative Numbers - Part 1**

Mr. Petty shows a way to think about positive and negative numbers to help you decide if an answer will be positive, negative or zero. This is Part 1 of a series. Future videos will help students use this simple idea to develop rules for performing operations with positive and negative integers.

**Questions to ask yourself before viewing:**

- Why do you think negative numbers are such a challenging thing for students to learn?
- What good are negative numbers if we never have a negative number of objects in real life?
- Can you determine if a sum of positive and negative numbers will be positive, negative or zero just by looking at the numbers? If so, how?

**Thinking About Positive and Negative Numbers - Part 2**

In this second part of the series, Mr. Petty uses the positive and negative dot visuals to explore addition and subtraction. At the end he raises the question of how this can help us create some rules for the operations.

**Questions to ask yourself before viewing:**

- If you had to answer 10 math problems (without a calculator) involving adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers, how many do you think you'd get right? Why?
- Which do you like best for helping you in your math work, a visual model or a rule? Why?

**Finding the Measure of Interior Angles in a Triangle**

In this video, Mrs. June explains how you can find the measure of one angle in a triangle if you know the other two.

**Questions to ask yourself before viewing:**

- Imagine that you add up the measure of the angles inside a triangle, then you do the same for another triangle. Do you think you will get the same sum for both?
- How many degrees are in a straight angle (or a straight line)?
- What is the value of x if x + 13 + 45 = 128?
