Area of Diagonal-Generated Triangles of Rectangle are Equal
In this video, Mr. Khan draws a box and two intersecting lines that produce several triangles. Mr. Khan proves that the area of these diagonal-generated triangles of the rectangle are equal. He goes over the formula for finding the area of a triangle. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. The screen gets busy (and dark)--the viewer may want to open to 'full screen' to see everything. The sound is a little low. (04:35)

Finding the Dew Point
With the help of Cyberspace's favorite weathercaster Stormy Gale, the CyberSquad learns how to make fog. Stormy Gale explains that as you cool down moist air you get fog, and if you warm up the air, the droplets evaporate back into the air and the fog goes away. The CyberSquad has to figure out how cold they have to make the air before fog will form. Using a can of water and a bucket of ice, Stormy Gale explains how to keep track of the temperature and how to use the dew point to predict when fo

I am looking specifically at KS3 and KS4. I will be focusing on sport and the performing arts.
