Podcast for Learning Math - It's Math Dude

Yesterday's post featured Grammar Girl, a podcasting website that provides audio podcast grammar tips.  The same company features Math Dude.  Math Dude is written by Jason Marshall and here is his bio.

Much like Grammar Girl, Math Dude features short audio podcasts that can be downloaded to an MP3 player or accessed from a computer.  The sites features concepts from beginning math to real world math.
If you teach math and you are looking for another way for your students to learn and retain the concepts you teach, have them try using this site.  Using audio files is easy and cool for students and this site keeps it simple.  You do not need to register to hear a podcast.  The written script is included below the audio tool.  Simply click play and you are into the world of learning with podcasts.
You can view available podcasts by type or see all the available topics.  The best way to stay connected to this site is to subscribe to new posts and can do that through a newsletter, iTunes (for your mp3 player) or by RSS feeds.

I encourage teachers to explore the use of audio podcasts with students and I would love to hear your experiences.  Math Dude and Grammar Girl can be another tool in your instructional tool belt.  Check out Math Dude and pass it on to a math teacher.  Thanks for reading my post and if you know good instructional podcasting sites, please share them in the comment section below.
