# Assessment Part 3 of 9 is on YouTube

The third part of the assessment series (dealing with reliability, validity, and bias) is now available on YouTube. Following this, I will be adapting either the Quantum Mechanics or Theory of Relativity series to YouTube. If you have a preference for which of those comes first, please let me know!

The first of the nine lessons has now been uploaded in three parts, available here. (Click through to see them if you are viewing from the main page.)

# Teaching Tidbit – Common Number Sets

I’m continuing my conversion of our educational content into YouTube format. I’ve moved from digital whiteboards to slideshows.

People who choose to take notes can pause at any time.

# Teaching Tidbit – Converting Decimals into Fractions

# “Teaching Tidbits” coming to YouTube

Those who have been around for a while, or who have checked the “Bureau 42 Teaches” link on the right hand side of the web version of the site know that I used to teach random lessons in PDF format. I’m starting to adapt these lessons to YouTube, with the goal of adding more. The first, about finding the Greatest Common Factor with subtraction, is now live. You can also make requests in the comments here or on YouTube if there are specific topics you’d like to see me cover.
