Carl Sagan: The great library of Alexandria.
A ten minute video that recreates the library and its role as the center of all learnng at that time. The first research institute, the library was vital to human learning and it encouraged some of the greatest minds in all history. Students need word list to watch this and it could result in some great essays about which person who studied here is the most important. A valuable asset. Startling facts that could encourage an appreciation for those who worked and contributed to this library.

Part 1 of a series by Professor Lawrence Perez at Saddleback College. Live action movie has an interesting perspective. The people are very small and the interactive white board is very large.
Phase one of MoLeNET (2007/08) involved 75 colleges and 18 schools, approximately 10,000 learners and 2,000 staff, in 32mobile learning projects. The Learning and Skills Council provided funding for h...
Video starts with review of the basics of square roots, showing symbols and how they are written. This video only covers perfect squares. Then they go through the perfect squares, from 0 to 6. Then a number of problems are done. From there they move to other problems that are not perfect squares. This information is used to solve the hypotenuse for right triangles. They give the formula and apply this to different triangles. They go on to show how to add, subtract, multiply, and dividing square
This video indicates it is for pre-algebra, but it is good for all levels, beginning, for those who need extra help, or those who need to review. This video is good and contains humor along with the lesson. Reviews what digits are, then goes into what the different place values are. This also contains what the place values are on the other side of the decimal. Then examples are gone through, they also go through the written number (long word form). Video is good quality and good for all st
This video indicates it is for Pre-Algebra, however this would be good for anyone who is reviewing or learning place value. In this video they talk about the expanded form of the number and how to read and write the number. They explain how to break down the number into expanded form, then they write it in expanded form. They do a few examples to help you understand. Then they write the number in expanded form and you have write the number in numerical form. Video is good quality and good
This is part one of a two-part video. This video starts with a review of place value, then proceeds to a decimal into a word statement, then writes the decimal as a fraction. Many examples are done. Then it moves on to whole numbers and decimals, writing them out, and showing the fraction equivalent. A few more examples are done. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
