Inverse Trigonometric Functions
This video demonstrates how to use inverse trigonometric functions to find the measure of the angle the function represents. Inverse trigonometric functions, found on any standard scientific or graphing calculator, are a vital part of trigonometry and will be encountered often in Calculus. (3:19)
The Law of Cosines
One method for solving for a missing length or angle of a triangle is by using the law of cosines. The law of cosines, unlike the law of sines, is similar to the Pythagorean theorem, but it works for all triangles, not just right triangles. In order to understand how to use the law of cosines effectively, one must understand the cosine function and inverse trigonometric functions. (1:21)
Evolution of the Woolly Mammoth
Scientists explain how they believe the jungle elephant adapted to the changing world climate to become the king of the Ice Age - the Woolly Mammoth. (01:48)

Making a Shoebox Budget
This video is a detailed tutorial on creating a budget. An enthusiastic presenter explains the steps of tracking spending for one month, grouping spending into categories, adding up amounts in categories, finding ways to reduce spending, writing categories, and assigning dollar amounts to each category. This video may appeal to students because she mentions budgeting for video games, movies, etc. (6:22)
Learn Equivalent Fractions
We can test if two fractions are equivalent by cross-multiplying their numerators and denominators. The cartoon animation in this video uses very simple pictures and examples to help explain equivalent fractions. The problems become more difficult towards the end of the video. (03:47)
Credit concentration delays recovery: CEO Richard Hendrix

Sectarian clashes erupt in Bahrain
Clashes break out between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims in Hamad in Bahrain while protesters in the capital marched through the city pressing the Sunni-led government for swift democratic change.
Graphing Radical Equations Using Shifts
This video describes, when graphing radical equations using shifts, how adding or subtracting a constant that is not in the radical will shift the graph up (adding) or down (subtracting). Adding or subtracting a constant that is in the radical will shift the graph left (adding) or right (subtracting). Multiplying a negative constant by the equation will reflect the graph over the x-axis. Multiplying by a number larger than one increases the y-values. (7:12)
Estimating Square Roots
When a radical is not a perfect square (1, 4, 9, 16, …), estimating square roots is a valuable tool. This video describes how to estimate the value of a radical between two consecutive integers by finding the two perfect squares that are slightly less and slightly more than the radicand. Also, remember that negative numbers do not have a real number square root. (2:28
