Not Right For WatchKnowLearn
WatchKnowLearn ratings are intentionally harsher than what you might find on YouTube, for example. Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad. Two is often watchable and shouldn't be ruled out.

  • 5 stars = Exemplary.
    Unusually helpful and well produced. Do not overuse this, please; it is not the standard rating for decent work, as it is elsewhere.
  • 4 stars = Very Good.
    Very helpful but not among the very best; adequately produced, at least.
  • 3 stars = Usable.
    Reasonably helpful, perhaps a bit amateurish in production or has some other problem; there is nothing wrong with a 3-star rating for amateur work!
  • 2 stars = Some Merit.
    Minimally helpful; not completely worthless or inappropriate; you can see how it might be useful to some people.
  • 1 star = Not Right for WatchKnowLearn.
    Not at all helpful, not educational, poorest quality, etc.; you can't see it being useful to anyone.

From pbslearningmedia.org (Approved: Mrs Jefferies), produced by Cyberchase
 
Dunk Tank is a math-themed game show created by the producers of Cyberchase and starring Harry from Cyberchase For Real. Using a combination of video and interactive gaming, each program addresses a single topic in the 6th grade math curriculum and students compete with themselves for high scores. Dunk Tank is an independent learning experience for students to complete in 15-30 minutes, depending on their proficiency, and can also be used to support teacher-led instruction. In this interactive, Harry explains key concepts about finding the area of squares, rectangles and composite shapes, including measuring with unit squares and using the formula Length x Width to calculate area. Students play Polygon-athon, a mini-game that challenges them to make simple polygons and find their areas; watch a comic video about using a non-standard unit of measure – sleeping bags! – to calculate how many friends can come for a sleepover; and answer other questions designed to help them further their understanding of area. Students can access support using a glossary, defining key math terms, and a menu of short segments to re-watch.

  • Unless changed, the Finder is the person who uploaded the video to WatchKnowLearn.
  • The Finder is allowed to "lock" information about the Owner and Producer (so other accounts cannot edit this information). The Finder field should match the Owner field when a video is entered in a contest.
  • As owner of a video, you can have finder rights transferred to you.
Simply click "Request Finder Rights" and an e-mail will be sent to the current Finder of the video. The Finder may then transfer rights to you. If he or she does not, bear in mind that an Administrator will see the refusal of your request and will be able to review it.
