Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the interviewer is trying to find out if the student has prior knowledge about types of rocks by asking her about the stripes on the rock. The student uses the word "metamorphic" and goes on to explain what a metamorphic rock is. The interviewer probes further by asking her why rocks get pressed together and where the stripes may have come from. He then shows her a picture to see if she can connec

4.273 Introduction to Design Inquiry (MIT)
This subject explores the varied nature and practice of computation in design. We will view computation and design broadly. Computation will include both work done on the computer (digital computing) and by-hand. Design will include both the process of making designs and artifacts, as well as the designs and artifacts themselves. The aim of the course is to develop a view of computation and design beyond the specifics of techniques and tools, and a critical, self-awareness of our own approaches
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science

Same Side Angles
This video describes how angles are formed when two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal (same side interior (between the parallel lines) and same side exterior (outside the parallel lines)). Since alternate interior and alternate exterior angles are congruent and since linear pairs of angles are supplementary, same side angles are supplementary. (1:53)

This video explains how isosceles triangles have at least two congruent sides and at least two congruent angles. The congruent sides, called legs, form the vertex angle. The other two congruent angles are the base angles. Isosceles triangles are used in the regular polygon area formula and isosceles right triangles are known as 45-45-90 triangles. (1:24)
