Critical Thinking for Children, Part 1
Introduction to some other videos about critical thinking, apparently based on a book, giving some very basic ideas about critical thinking. This instructional video was created from The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking for Children.
Critical Thinking for Children, Part 2
Introduces the notion of three different kinds of thinkers. Part 2 in a 5 part series to encourage development of good thinking practices.
Critical Thinking for Children, Part 3
Part 3 of 5 in a series from Critical Thinking.org on developing sound thought processes.
Critical Thinking Video for Children, Part 4
Part 4 of 5 of a series from CriticalThinking.org developing critical thought processes.
Critical Thinking for Children, Part 5
Part 5 of 5 in a series for children developed by CriticalThinking.org to introduce them to the concept of critical thinking.
What is Physics?
"Everything we do and use is governed by the laws of Physics." This clip provides an introduction to Physics.
These two segments each show three students participating in the volley up challenge. Three children stand in a triangle and face the challenge to volley the ball ten times in a row without the ball hitting the ground. Each student must contact the ball at least twice but may not strike it twice in a row ( similar to volleyball rules). ( :13, :18)
Phases of Meiosis
This 27 minute video is about the 12 phases of meiosis. The phases of meiosis are meiosis I, prophase I, leptotene, zygotene, pachytene, diplotene, diakinesis, synchronous processes, metaphase I, anaphase I, and telophase I. All of these 12 phases of meiosis combine together to create new organisms such as by sexual reproduction. The video uses a cartoon graphic and a lecturer.
Commas, Semicolons, Colons
This video is an AP English project. It explains how to use commas, semicolons, and colons and provides examples of how to use each correctly. The examples are not read aloud by the narrators, so it might be helpful to pause the video to read through the examples. Then, the video asks some questions with multiple choice answers to test your knowledge of correctly using each type of punctuation.
The Solid Earth
Learn how the solid interior of the earth affects the outer layer through mountain ranges, volcanoes and plate tectonics. Get a better understanding of the earth and plate tectonics by viewing this video.
Introduction to Newton's Three Laws - Lesson 1
This NASA video segment explores how Newton's Laws of Motion apply to the development and operation of airplanes. Viewers watch an instructor at NASA's National Test Pilot School as he describes and then demonstrates why seatbelts are an important force on pilots; what it means to pull 2, 4 and even 6 g in a jet; and how the thrust of a jet engine causes an aircraft to move forward. Formulas are presented onscreen along with the calculations discussed in the segment. For example, the instructor
Newton's Laws of Motion
This video shows the three laws of motion developed by Sir Isaac Newton and is done with excellent graphics.
The first law of motion, inertia, is when an object will not move or else move in a straight line unless an unbalanced force acts on it. The second law of motion states that force is the product of mass and acceleration; acceleration fo an object depends on the mass and magnitude of the force. (force=massxacceleration) The third law of motion is the law of action and reaction. In ev
Object Oriented Programming
An introduction to object-oriented programming by High School eLearning. This video gives a good, basic introduction to what object-oriented programming and programs are. It is a PowerPoint style video.(8:32)
