Get Started in the Math Video Challenge

Welcome!

Engage your students in project-based learning that makes math fun, interactive and exciting. The Math Video Challenge has been recognized by STEMworks as an Accomplished Program, because, simply put, it works!

1: Get the Guide for New Team Advisors

The Guide for New Team Advisors is included in the Math Video Challenge Playbook. From registration to video creation, the Guide for New Team Advisors includes all of the information you'll need to be a successful leader in this program.

2: Assemble a Team of 4 Students + Complete the Registration Process

As the team advisor, you must start the registration process. You will be in charge of getting permission from each participating student's parent/guardian and will have to review and approve your student's video before it can be officially submitted into the contest. Register for the 2018-2019 Math Video Challenge here. You can find detailed information about registering and getting parent/guardian permission in the Guide for New Team Advisors.

3: Guide Your Students, As Needed, As They Create Their Video

Every team is different and some groups of students will need more help from their team advisor than others. Your students are the filmmakers in this program, so you do not need to be a technology or math expert to be a team advisor. But, you may need to help your students edit their script, plan out logistical arrangements or work together as a team.

We provide lots of resources for students and team advisors to create a video. In addition to the detailed information and tools included in the Math Video Challenge Playbook, you and your students can use the links below to get started!

4: After Your Students Have Completed Their Video, Get It Submitted + Approved

Before your students' video can be officially submitted into the contest, you as the team advisor must review it and approve it. You can find detailed information about how video uploading and approval works in the Math Video Challenge Playbook. Usually the entire approval process takes only 5-7 minutes (depending on how long your students' video is).
