Fraction to Decimal Lecture
Students learn to convert fractions to decimals. For example, to convert the fraction 7/10 to a decimal, first read the fraction as "7 tenths". Next, since the tenths place is one place to the right of the decimal point, 7 tenths can be written as the decimal 0.7. To convert 11/20 to a decimal, first find a fraction that is equivalent to 11/20 that has a denominator of 100, so multiply both the numerator and denominator by 5, to get 55/100. Next, read the fraction as "55 hundredths", which can b

Spread of Technology from Ford to Europe in 1920s
Ford was the preeminent manufacturer in the 1920s. However,
the Ford techniques were spread internationally by Ford itself through
subsidiaries and by other companies learning from Ford. This video
shows both processes. Note that the British firm Morris, while
instituting an assembly line, has a hand-driven version and thus paid
its workers on piece rates. Ford had a mechanical line and thus could
regulate the work pace without piece rate incentives.

A brilliant pianist with a famously wide hand span, he began to think performing in concert (or conducting) might be a better career path for him.¬† Deeply unsettled, he began drinking too much alcohol.¬
