As schools are scrambling to determine how to put classes online, I recently completed 46 5-minute videos for the Colorado ProStart students that are dual-enrolled at my university.  These videos serve as a chapter introduction for all 44 chapters in both level 1 and 2. They could be used as homework assignments as well. For instance, in Level 2, chapter 9, Food costing, I really get into the math part. The links are below. Please share with your teachers.  These align with the 2nd edition of Foundations books (orange & brown). Chef Jackson Lamb MBA, CSC, CHE, Professor of Hospitality
