Subtracting Decimals with No Place Holder
In this is an easy-to-understand, brief video the instructor uses a sketchpad program to demonstrate how to subtract decimal numbers. Several examples are modeled with emphasis placed on regrouping and lining up the decimals.
This is a brief (approximately) two-minute video from Sal Khan about subtracting decimals using the problem: 9.005-3.6.
Mr. Khan uses computer software for demonstration. The screen is a little 'busy' so the viewer may want to open the screen to 'full screen' to see all more clearly.
Subtracting Decimals - Word Problem
This video is from Sal Khan about subtracting decimals using the problem: Leo has $4,522.08 in his bank account. He deposits another $875.50 and then withdraws $300.00 in cash. How much is left in his bank account?

Mr. Duey - Fractions Rap
This is an excellent, catchy rap by Mr. Duey with lots of examples and great visual effects teaching how to convert fractions to percentages and how to change improper fractions to mixed numbers. (02:35)
This is a lesson on how to divide fractions.The instructor uses a white board. He uses a great expression called 'flip and dip." (03:02)
Basic Math: Lesson 6 - Video Clip #9 - Arithmetic of Fractions: Addition
Concepts covered: Addition of Improper and Proper Fractions and also Mixed Numbers.
1.4.8 The standard deviation The interquartile range is a useful measure of dispersion in the data and it has the excellent property of not being too sensitive to outlying data values. (That is, it is a resistant measure.) However, like the median it does suffer from the disadvantage that its calculation involves sorting the data. This can be very time-consuming for large samples when a computer is not available to do the calculations. A measure that does not require sorting of the data and, as you will find in later uni

Redefining the Wall: Architecture, Materials and Macroelectronics
As a principle element of architecture, technology has allowed for the wall to become an increasingly dynamic component of the built environment. The traditional connotations and objectives related to the wall are being redefined: static becomes fluid, opaque becomes transparent, barrier becomes filter and boundary becomes borderless. Combining smart materials, intelligent systems, engineering, and art can create a component that does not just support and define but significantly enhances the ar

The desert biome is characterized by low precipitation, a high rate of evaporation (seven to fifty times as much as precipitation), and a wide daily range in temperature. The dramatic temperature fluctuations are the result of low humidity, which allows up to 90 percent of solar radiation to penetrate the atmosphere and heat the ground during the day, then for this accumulated heat to be released back into the atmosphere at night. Precipitation in deserts, unlike other biomes, is highly irregula
2.1.1 A day in my life
Ever wondered how a computer processes data into information? This unit will help you to understand the distinction between the two and examines how a computer-based society impacts on daily life. You will learn what computers can do with data to produce information and how computers can be used to work with data and search for it, control machines, and support commercial operations.
MAS.450 Holographic Imaging (MIT)
MAS.450 is a laboratory course about holography and holographic imaging. This course teaches holography from a scientific and analytical point of view, moving from interference and diffraction to imaging of single points to the display of three-dimensional images. Using a "hands-on" approach, students explore the underlying physical phenomena that make holograms work, as well as designing laboratory setups to make their own images. The course also teaches mathematical techniques that allow the b

Of Mice and Children: Unraveling the Effects of a Technologized Infancy
Dimitri's passion is developing actionable strategies to optimize the cognitive, emotional, and social development of preschool children. The pursuit of that passion has taken him from the exam room, to the community and most recently to cages of newborn mice. Christakis' laboratory focuses on the effects of early environmental influences on child health and development. He speaks frequently to international audiences of pediatricians, parents, and educators about the impact of early learning

Three essays on bank efficiency
Since commercial banks play important roles in the financial markets, it is important to evaluate whether banks operate efficiently. Moreover, given increased competition from non-bank financial institutions, commercial banks should operate more efficiently than they did previously. Commercial banks might operate more efficiently if they have superior information. If this is true, bank size should not matter to the operation of the bank. Thus, as long as the bank has superior information, it wil
