Workshop 6: Energy and Ecosystems
In this program, participants are shown that light energy that has been absorbed by plants during photosynthesis and transformed into chemical energy can now be transferred to other organisms. Energy is contained within food molecules such as sugar and starch made by plants, therefore when animals eat plants, or eat other animals, the energy is passed to them. However, the transfer of energy between plants and animals is inefficient and there are energy losses.

Circumference is the distance around a circle. The ratio of the circumference of a diameter is pi= c/d. The video moves slowly and students should be able to follow it after the terms have been explained and practice.
How to Find Volume in Cubic Feet
To find the volume of an object in cubic feet, multiply the height, the length, and the width together and convert the resulting value into feet if necessary. The instructor uses a document camera to aide his lecture and model examples.
