# Prioritizing YouTube channels

There are more YouTube videos currently available than I can index in one lifetime. Therefore, until I have money to hire others to help me index, I must loosely rank channels to add value to this site as quickly as possible. Roughly, I will be ranking channels as *high*, *medium*, *low.*

- High: Top of the line channels, like Eddie Woo, iZAP Math, etc.
- Medium: Channels that consistently upload videos that are good, but less than stellar.
- Low: Channels which consistently upload videos having multiple problems, such as poor explanation, low quality audio or video, shaky camera, moderate accent, slighly broken English, etc.

## Best YouTube channels

Here's a list of what I consider to be the best YouTube channels for learning and teaching math. They are listed in alphabetical order.

- Sarada Herke
- Socratica
- The Math Sorcerer
- The Organic Chemistry Tutor
- Wrath of Math
- blackpenredpen
- iZAP Math

## All YouTube channels

Khan Academy Almost every resource is useful. Very high priority. Eddie Woo Almost every resource is useful. Very high priority. Matthew Salamone Undergrad lessons that no other YouTube channels cover. Very high priority. ThinkwellVids Very charismatic speaker. Lessons aren't as good as Eddie Woo's but often on par with Khan Academy's. Very high priority. MathDoctorBob Extremely good teacher. Now covers intermediate algebra as well as various undergrad topics. Almost every video is useful. Very high priority. The Math Sorcerer Lots of good undergrad problems and explanations. Very high priority. Polar Pi Lots of interesting proofs, some of which occur nowhere else on YouTube, but he also has lots of videos that are inferior to others on the same topic. It will take time to wade through these videos. High priority. Numberphile All videos are high quality. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out where to place a video. High priority. Mathologer All videos are high quality. Some interesting concepts on this channel that can't be found anywhere else on YouTube. High priority. MindYourDecisions Every video is of a high level of quality. However, most videos are on puzzles that are too difficult for the vast majority of students. Thus, finding videos which are useful to me takes considerable time and energy. High priority. blackpenredpen All his videos are very high quality, but some of his videos feature extremely hard problems. Knowing this, I must watch each video with a careful eye. This channel also features different ways of solving problems. For example, one of his videos explains four ways of factoring a quadratic. High priority. Professor Leonard Excellent teacher. His videos don't have nice titles like Eddie Woo's videos, so these will take considerable time to cut up and index. Medium priority. patrickJMT Fantastic source of routine practice problems being solved. Not many explanations though. Medium priority. The Organic Chemistry Tutor Fantastic source of routine practice problems being solved. Not many explanations though. Medium priority. Pierce College CAS A good source of various routine practice problems being solved. Medium priority. NancyPi Fantastic source of routine practice problems being solved. Not many explanations though. Medium priority. Wootube^2 The vast majority of videos on this channel, consist of Eddie Woo's extremely generic advice for classroom teachers. These videos are not on any particular topic, such as how to teach factoring quadratics. Thus, the vast majority of the videos on this channel are not interesting to me. However, there are a few interesting videos. Low priority. Wrath of Math Best graph theory playlist on YouTube, although Sarada Herke is a close second. Many good videos for undergrads. Very high priority. Mark Willis Teacher of A-level maths with tons of excellent videos! 99graham All videos are for algebra 1 (elementary algebra). These appear to be good quality. Let's Learn, Nemo! Precalc, calc 1/2, probability, statistics, and some other random math videos on real analysis, etc. Nakia Rimmer Calc 1/2/3 Dan Kernler Undergraduate stats videos DanielChanMaths Graduate level math. Need someone with this knowledge to index these videos. Pilot Math One video on simplifying radicals. The other videos could be part of a bridge course. Not many videos on this channel. Professor Kellum Looks like he teaches trigonometry and calc 1, although I only browsed his videos very briefly. Jenny Ellis Approximately 50 videos, in total, on the topics of algebra 2 and trigonometry. Reenu Math Looks like videos for grades 4-12. All videos appear to be good quality. Nothing special about these videos. Real Math Solutions Looks like mostly 4th and 5th grade stuff. Not many videos, but they're uploading a lot lately. Nat Ayton Videos for Australia's year 10 and year 12 curriculum. NicholasJMV Algebra 2 and calculus 1, 79 videos each. Mineola Creative Content Math videos scattered throughout. Likely high quality. ProfOmarMath Undergrad theorems and problems YTMaths High quality videos that need to be indexed. Icon Math High quality videos that need to be indexed. Barbara Rademacher Bad presentation, but great topics for Algebra 1/2. MrPilarski Teaches high school geometry and algebra 1. FerranteMath Lots of high quality high school level videos I need to index! Ms. Temple's Math Two of her videos have terrible audio! There may be decent videos on this channel, but indexing this channel is definitely low priority. Constantin Bürgi Some dynamic programming videos I should watch and maybe index. Sue Popelka Lots of high-quality high school videos. cahillmath High school math videos. Nicole Dow-Macosky ~50 high school geometry videos. Hasn't uploaded in 6 years. Simon Clark I believe all his math videos are listed here. I think his only math video is "Why sin and cos don't mean anything," which I've already indexed. TucsonMathDoc There are some decent problems covered. Teacher is mediocre. Low priority. Math with Mrs. Madsen Algebra 1 videos. Probably every video is done better by Khan Academy. Low priority. Girls' Angle Most of these videos are garbage. Very low priority.
