I really like that instead of just explaining how to multiply integers, Ms. Sutherland chooses a word problem and interprets it into an equation. I also really like the triangle method. I had never seen that before but it seems to be helpful when dealing with multiplication of negative integers.

Mrs. Sutherland thoroughly explains the steps she is taking to solve this problem. I like the way she dissects the word problem. It is very informative to the viewer when she lays out the rules on multiplying integers. And her triangle sign trick is really neat. The video speed felt slow at times and could be sped up.

Very nice and cheery conversational tone.

Good to stress how to interpret the word "owe".

The expression "-2 x 4 = 8" is displayed for a long part of the video. Although you are getting ready to place the negative sign, leaving up the display through most of the video can create a mental image. Maybe it would be good to place a question mark in place.

Good use of the triangle rule. Might be useful to have a couple of opportunities in the video for students to be asked a question and than asked to pause while they come up with their own answer.

Avoid the word "well"

Great to see a word problem, happy voice tone, the triangle is a neat and easy way to help students find the final solution, would have liked to see a quick run thorough of how to use it if both signs would have been negative or positive
