Praxis Core & Elem Ed Math Study Materials

(With 400 flashcards, 8 study packets, and over 1,000 mini-movies)

Resources on this website will help potential educators prepare for the math section of the Praxis Core (5732) and the Praxis Elem Ed (5003) exams. The 8 study packets cover all concepts on the exams. The 400 flashcards are available in both paper and electronic format (for Windows & Macintosh computers, as well as smartphones, tablets, and Android devices). The 1,000 mini-movies are short videos made especially for visual learners, which includes 60% to 80% of us.

TESTIMONIAL

I just wanted to write you a note and tell you thank you for your website. I have spent hundreds of dollars on other study guides trying to pass the math portion of the Praxis 5033 test with little success. Your methods helped me not only pass this test, but pass it with flying colors. Now this old teacher is employable again. Thank you!

 Accessibility



I am in the process of adding closed captions to all my mini-movies, but since I have several thousand mini-movies on my site, this will take quite some time. All pdf documents are available in their original Word format for those who need to read the math equations with a screen reader. As I learn how to make my site more accessible, I will add these features. If you are a member of my site and need accessibility, please contact me via e-mail at jolene@jolenemorris.com and we'll work out something until my site is fully accessible.

As I create new mini-movies, I have been including the closed captions and transcripts. But each day I go back and add closed captions and transcripts to at least one mini-movie. To understand the scope of this problem, I have over 5,000 mini-movies on my website. If I do only one mini-movie per day, this conversion will take over 13.5 years!! As such, I am working on highest priority mini-movies first, and I am looking for alternate ways to add captions and transcripts to existing mini-movies.

Closed captions are word-for-word translations of the mini-movie, while transcripts are "descriptive" transcripts to reflect not only the voice but the visual component of the video. Coming soon: A web page with non-graphical links to all descriptive transcripts for each course.

  What Are the Mini-movies?  


What are the mini-movies? The mini-movies are marked with a Jolene's SHOW ME icon icon. They are MP4 video files that contain a teaching presentation with an audio track. These were recorded in my office (not in a live lecture) so they are short, but very dense with compact information. Movie controls are available so you can replay, pause, and skip sections.

At times, a mini-movie may stop abruptly in the middle of play or it might not load at all. The website bandwidth that I pay for only allows 3-4 movies downloaded at a time. So if your mini-movie stops in the middle or won't download properly, refresh/reload your browser window and it should work.
