Interview with Illustrator Jeff Hopkins
MEET ME AT THE CORNER travels to Brooklyn to meet children's illustrator Jeff Hopkins. A very young girl interviews him in this video. Good questions, but hard to hear them. He suggests carrying a sketchbook "everywhere you go." His website is www.picturescometolife.com He says he loves to get email from children. (3:33)
Cooperative Learning Groups - Centers
A fun insight into using cooperative learning centers in an elementary science class. The video is set to music and shows students interacting in groups. It zooms in on the group's instructions and work and occasionally gives the audio of the students talking. It aso shows how the students move to new groups. Run time 03:10.
The Definition and Example of a Translation
The instructor uses a white board to describe what a translation is. He explains that a translation is a "slide" and shows how this "slide" changes the coordinates. The video ends abruptly during an example on a whiteboard but there is a link to click to finish the example.
Geometry Final Review on Dilation-Dilations and Ratios of Dilations- Part 1
Teacher reviews dilations for students. The teacher in the video gives and example with pencil and paper. This is part 1 of 2 parts.
Geometry Final Review Standard 2 part 2
This is part 2 of 2 parts. This video shows examples of dilations using pencil and paper for a geometry final review.
Description of Dilations
This is a brief portion of a video that describes a dilation. To continue on how to perform a dilation you must watch the rest of the video at the link shown at the end of the video.
Dilations in Matrix Form Review
A quick review of dilations in matrix form. Examples are presented with marker on a white board.
A dilation is a non-rigid transformation, which means that the original and the image are not congruent. They are, however, similar figures. This video demonstrates how to perform dilations. (2:25)
Adding Rational Expressions
This video shows an instructor explaining how to add a rational expression. First, he explains and shows how to factor the expression. Then he continues to finish adding the expression. He works quite quickly, but does work through the steps for the viewer to follow along.
Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions
Adding and subtracting rational expressions is similar to adding fractions. This video clips explains how to add and subtract rational expressions by finding a common denominator and then adding the numerators. To find a common denominator, factor each first. This strategy is especially important when the denominators are trinomials. (2:25)
Subtracting Rational Expressions
This video is a lesson on subtracting rational expressions. The instructor uses a white board to walk the viewer through the steps needed to subtract an example expression.
Simplifying Rational Expressions
This short video shows an instructor explaining how to simplify a rational expression. He works quickly, but shows the steps necessary to simplify the expression.
How to Simplify Algebraic Expressions
This is an excerpt and the rest of the video has to be view at the link provided in the video. The video show how to simplify algebraic expressions by combining like terms.
Terms are the part of an expression to be added or subtracted. Terms
are called 'like terms' if the variables are the same. A coefficient is
the number that is multiplied by a variable in an algebraic expression.
In this lesson, Professor Burger demonstrates the commutative,
Simplifying Algebraic Expressions Using Distributive Property
This is a lesson on simplifying algebraic expressions. It shows how to first use the Distributive Property and then combine like terms. The audio is low and it is a little difficult to hear the narrator.
