Welcome to Math Help 24/7
Below you will find math courses that have links to video tutorials created by Valencia math professors. The videos use a variety of technologies, all simple to view, but some will require flash player. If you need flash player installed, you will be given directions on how to install this at the time it is needed.
One type of video used is called a Pencast, created by the Livescribe pen. A tutorial video for getting the most out of viewing Pencast is also available.
