Description:

The 3-D animated video helps students understand the wordings in the following distance, time, and rate word problem:
The baby panda left home. Two minutes later, Mama found out and left home to catch the baby. Mama walked at 65 feet per minute and the baby panda at 45. They both walked along the same path. How long would it take mama to catch the baby panda?

Although the video shows the traditional way to solve the problem, a novel way video only requires free log in. It shows how to develop critical thinking skills to look at the problem in different ways. The video fits the visual learners' style and may reduce the anxiety of students who have difficulty think in abstract terms.
