Socratica: Beautiful Science, Math & More!

Socratica is a YouTube channel chalk-full of high-quality videos on a variety of subjects with a focus on math, science, and arts and humanities. Clicking on the Playlists tab will show the variety of subtopics available on the channel, 25 in total, ranging from Astronomy and Biology to Algebra and Geometric Constructions to even a Glossary of Art terms and Shakespeare Sonnets.

The number of videos in each playlist varies as does the length of individual videos. For the longer videos that you might want to use only a portion of, check out my post on how to clip the beginning AND end points of a YouTube video.

Ever since I started using the quiz feature in Google Forms to conduct assessments I have been on the lookout for high-quality videos like these. I will insert them into the “Add feedback” panel of a Form question so that students can use them to help “brush up” on the material and as a study tool if a re-assessment is needed.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing our channel on your blog! We’re really touched by your generosity. We love making these videos and it’s so helpful when people get the word out like this.

    1. You are most welcome. In this day and age where it’s a challenge for teachers to find quality resources that they and their students can trust, when you DO find one that prioritizes these values it’s like you have discovered gold and need to share the discovery with others. Please continue to create your content and keep up the good work!
