Understanding Leukemia In Children
In this video, Dr. Guarini from Columbia University is interviewed and explains what leukemia is and who is most likely to have the disease. Leukemia ia a cancer of the white blood cells. There are two types of leukemia. 4:07 min.
Discusses what texture is-it refers to the way something feels. There are two types of texture actual texture and stimulated texture.
Examples are given. (2:05)
This video, done by a high school student in Santa Clara, California, looks at one of the elements of art - space. It shows how to display depth and space. A discussion and examples of the different types of space helps you hve a good understanding of perspective. This video is part of the video collection at NextVista.org (http://nextvista.org), a proud partner of Curriki. (4:13)
This video, done by a high school student in Santa Clara, California, looks at one of the elements of art - form. Forms are 3-d and take up real space. Shapes can be made into forms. Discusses different types of forms, has a review and mini quiz at the end of the video.
Farmers put in long hours and a lot of care for their animals during
birthing season. Join Kyle Brown as he brings you into the animal “nursery” at his family operated hog farm. You will also visit other types of animal farms for a view at their birthing seasons, too. The video addresses piglets, chicks, polts, and calves on the family farm. Run time 03:16.
Cell Division in Animals
This is a brief computer-animated video that describes differentiation in animals at the cellular level (cell division). Once the cells are differentiated they lose the ability to divide. As a result, one cannot grow a whole animal in a culture medium from a single cell. The growth of the whole animal in a single cell is only possible in the early stages of development - after the first one or two divisions. Other key words include: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. Run time 01:51.
The World of Chemistry
The relationships of chemistry to the other sciences and to everyday life are presented. An understanding of chemistry as it relates to the real world is presented through many examples, including types of fabric, paints, plastics, batteries, medicines, and fuels.
Invertebrate Fossils - Lesson 16 - Part 2 of 7 In this lesson, you will investigate and learn about horn coral, brachiopod shellswith external spines, the seasonal growth of coral, and Cambrian fauna.You will also explore the first fossils formed with many cells.

Understanding the Brain Through Epilepsy
In the midst of a young boy’s epileptic seizure, Dr. Fritz Dreifuss describes what is happening to him on a medical level. He explains that a lack of adequate inhibitory neurotransmitter function leads to an “electrical storm” in the brain. Different types of treatment are covered, including valproic acid and radical surgeries, along with how and why they are effec
Visual Information Processing: Elementary Concepts
This module depicts the original pioneering research on how the brain’s visual systems transmit and encode information. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, present their work on the visual cortex of the monkey using x-ray images. Two Nobel laureates also recount their serendipitous discovery of “feature detector” cells in the striate cortex that
Rock Cycle Rap
This song spells out and describes the three types of rocks (metamorphic, sedimentary, igneous) in a brief, entertaining rap. The song only touches on the types of rocks. The video might be used to introduce a unit on the rock cycle or to inspire students to create their own music video about the rock cycle. Run time 01:50.
Our World: The Rock Cycle
Find out how rocks brought to Earth by the Apollo astronauts have helped NASA learn more about the rock cycle. Compare igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks found on Earth to three types of rocks found on the moon.
The Unity of Living Systems
All cellular organisms — prokaryotic and eukaryotic — share basic chemical similarities. Out of these similarities, however, emerge diverse patterns of cell assembly. Students encounter the tools to understand various cell types and their relationship to noncell entities such as viruses.
Jonas Salk and the Polio Vaccine
The polio virus attacks certain types of nerve cells and for hundreds of years it killed and crippled - especially children. By 1952 Dr. Salk and his research team had developed a killed virus vaccine against polio. Learn how a nationwide mobilization led by Jonas Salk eradicated polio from American society in this short video clip. Run time 0:55.
Cell Biology and Cancer
Cancers result when genes required for normal cell function are mutated and the resulting cells undergo other changes ultimately leading to uncontrolled division. This session reveals new information on normal cell function, proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes and their role in the cell cycle, and current research in drug design for specific cancers.
Workshop 5: Energy in Food
All life forms use energy. In this session, explore the transfer and conversion of the potential energy in food, and see how that energy is stored. Through animations, witness photosynthesis, the process by which plant cells capture the ultimate energy source for all food — sunlight.
Sci-tutors: Physical Processes: Energy Resources and Energy Transfer
This article from the Sci-tutors website explores the development of the 'energy' concept and some of the barriers to its understanding. In particular, the idea of dealing with 'energy transfer' rather than 'types of energy' is stressed since many trainees (and most tutors) have themselves been taught and well drilled in the latter approach. There are a number of downloads that provide teaching material that can be adapted for use with trainees and practical experiences useful to support the und
Essential Knowledge: Activating Creative Thinking Skills | Digital Camera
Education expert Amy James shows parents how they can use various types of digital cameras to activate their child's creative thinking skills.
How to Format Text in Microsoft Word
This video is for Microsoft Word, but would work for Open Office or other types of word processors as word processors have very similar features. Type the text-you can increase the size, the font types, color, etc.
