4001 Bilingual Caesar's Invasion of Britain
Bello Gallico Book Four, Chapter 20 -22 The Invasion of Britain Julius Caesar Edition of John Taylor (London, 1830) with interlinear translation. The Latin text has been re-arranged somewhat, so this can be regarded as an upper- intermediate level text, however, even a complete beginner will benefit from hearing as much extended prose as possible.
Exterior Angles of a Polygon
This video explains how, in a polygon, an exterior angle is formed by a side and an extension of an adjacent side. Exterior angles of a polygon have several unique properties. The sum of exterior angles in a polygon is always equal to 360 degrees. Therefore, for all equiangular polygons, the measure of one exterior angle is equal to 360 divided by the number of sides in the polygon. (3:39)
This video describes the properties of a kite. Knowing the properties of a kite will help when solving problems with missing sides and angles. Kite properties include (1) two pairs of consecutive, congruent sides, (2) congruent non-vertex angles and (3) perpendicular diagonals. Other important polygon properties to be familiar with include trapezoid properties, parallelogram properties, rhombus properties, and rectangle and square properties. (1:59)

Problem Solving: Logic Number Puzzles
These logic number puzzles help students develop strong number sense as they work, clue by clue, to identify the digits of the missing number. The mixed-skills clues incorporate even-odd, less than-greater than, operations (sum, difference), multiples of 5 and 10, geometric terms (octagaon, pentagon, hexagon, quadrilateral, trapezoid, parallelogram), money (quarters, nickels) and measurement (cup, pint, quart, gallon). Students must squeeze every bit of knowledge from each clue to eliminate poss

Solving Radical Equations
Radical equations are equations that have square root terms. This video describes how to solve radical equations by isolating the radical expression on one side of the equation and then squaring both sides. If there are two or more terms on the opposite side of the equation, remember to draw parenthesis around that expression before squaring. (00:59)

Mrs. Henrietta Lacks' Legacy: Impact on Recent Research
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells -- taken without her knowledge -- became one of the most important tools in medicine. In this eight-minute video, Hayley Warren, a sophomore at The Field School in Washington, D.C., presents a paper she wrote detailing the impact of HeLa cells on recent medical research.
