Summary: In this study podcasts, i.e. short video clips, were analysed to ascertain how mathematical competencies were addressed. We analysed how the mathematical content was presented in the podcasts, and then how these characterisations related to eight studentsâ€™ interest to learn mathematics. The mathematical presentations were analysed using the Mathematical Competencies Research Framework. The results indicate that podcasts that address several mathematical competencies receive overall higher grades by the students in the study.
