The DVDs are higher quality versions of the FREE videos on this web site. They contain NO advertising. You may download purchased videos to your iPod/iPhone/AppleTV or other video device that can play .M4V videos. If you are a teacher, you are allowed to use the purchased videos in your classroom, but may not place them onto your website.
The DVD-R discs should be compatible with most DVD players. The DVD-ROM folders/discs of the Math Lessons contain: videos in .M4V and possibly other formats, additional images, and PDF Math Notes.
Videos are in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio) NOT standard (4:3 aspect ratio). DVDs are all in NTSC format (what TVs in North America and Japan use). They should all work well, if watched using a computer with DVD playing capability, so International Orders are welcome.
*Special Note to Teachers, Parents and Tutors: If you plan to use my videos for teaching/tutoring purposes, you would need to buy the DVDs (not just watch the free videos on this site with your students). The good news is no additional school licenses are needed!
Students: Although not required, it is appreciated if you could buy at least one DVD lesson from me.
