We love Bill Nye videos but this is not at all up to the quality we had hoped for or expected and DEFINITELY not worth the money. Is very very short-- about 10 minutes of educational content, no real teaching, and a lot of goofy little repititive slogans said over and over again. Introduces some math concepts by name (fractions, proportions, etc) but doesn't actually teach about them at all-- skip this one!

Not the Bill Nye I and my students grew to love as Bill Nye the Science Guy! Wouldn't recommend it.

I have not actually seen this video, but my son (12) has watched it many times. He was excited enough about it to share it with his class, and he says usually when they watch things, the kids talk the whole time. Not so with this one. He says Bill is kind of obnoxious, but in a good and funny way, and makes the concepts interesting and easy to understand.

This excellent, educational Disney DVDs helps make basic algebra accessible to young people. This is a "classroom edition" DVDs particularly ideal for use in public or private schools (or home schooling). Bill Nye's Solving For X: Pre-Algebra, Volume 1 covers infinite fractions, exponents, signed numbers & proportional reasoning. Enhancing the colorful presentation featuring ways in which mathematics is directly useful in real life, the Solving for X DVDs also includes an interactive whiteboard assessment game that students can play independently, in teams, or as an entire class, as well as a downloadable educator's guide with additional resources and activities, and correlations to National Curriculum Standards. Due to its step-by-step, user-friendly format, this DVDs is also useful for teens and adults who need a refresher in algebra basics! Highly recommended.
