Mathkids Partner(s): Herb Ginsburg
Teachers College

Access: Columbia only
Released: September 2012


Mathkids is a collection of videos produced for Professor Herb Ginsburg's "Development of Mathematical Thinking" curriculum at Teachers College, Columbia University showing children engaging in mathematical learning activities. This course covers topics ranging from children's informal understanding of basic mathematical concepts to the implications of developmental psychology for formal pedagogy and curriculum.

CCNMTL developed the Mathkids website, which collects over 100 videos and features a faceted search that allows users to filter videos by keyword, topic, activity type, and child name. Students watch and analyze the videos to help them better understand how students learn mathematics from an early age and build upon this knowledge in their future careers as teachers.

The videos collected for Mathkids were originally filmed by CCNMTL for Professor Ginsburg from 2004-2007 for the Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL) project.
