Christian the Lion: Release and Reunion
This video contains actual film footage of Christian the Lion being released in Africa and the emotional reunion with his owners. The song " I Will Always Love You" plays in the background. This would be a good video to show as students are reading the final chapters of Christian the Lion books. ( 4:44)

18.238 Geometry and Quantum Field Theory (MIT)
Geometry and Quantum Field Theory, designed for mathematicians, is a rigorous introduction to perturbative quantum field theory, using the language of functional integrals. It covers the basics of classical field theory, free quantum theories and Feynman diagrams. The goal is to discuss, using mathematical language, a number of basic notions and results of QFT that are necessary to understand talks and papers in QFT and String Theory.

How Music Works 2 - Rhythm - Part 1
Narrator is Howard Goodall. Rhythm is the maverick in the musical toolbox, even without melody, harmony, or bass line a rhythm can stand by itself. Rhythm is the part of music that interacts the most immediately and spontaneously with our body. What is it about rhythm that makes is so great? Rhythm can make us tap our feet, it can also be complex. The beat is the heart of rhythm. Video discusses the rhythm in classic music. Video a

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
This video gives a brief description of a Stem-and-leaf plot, how to make them and use them to find the median and range.
Relative Frequency Histogram
In this video, an unfinished histogram is pictured. The instructor explains how to complete the histogram and does each step necessary to do so.
Drawing a Histogram
This lesson takes provided data about mass to create a histogram about the data. While the lesson relates to a previous experiment, it still provides good step by step instruction on how to draw a histogram. Graph paper will be needed to follow along and complete the lesson along with the instructor. It is hard at times to see what the instructor is writing because the writing is very small.
In this video (06:08), Mr. Khan explains how to visualize data using a histogram. Mr. Khan uses the computer software (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.
How to Find the Median of a Series of Numbers
In math, the median is found by looking for the piece of data that is in the middle of a set of data ordered from the smallest to largest. Find the median of a series of numbers with tips from a math teacher.
History of mathematics and X
The History of Mathematics and X "is an initiative that aims to offer mathematical histories for various topics, x. Each topic is covered in a talk at the University of Nottingham that is available to view online, in an article for iSquared Magazine and is accompanied by a companion podcast released by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications through the Travels in a Mathematical World podcast." Two topics are currently (May 2010) available - cryptography and gravity. These resources ha
Calculus-Curl, Part 3
The instructor in this video, Sal Khan, continues his discussion of vector theory and curl. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.
18.755 Introduction to Lie Groups (MIT)
This course is devoted to the theory of Lie Groups with emphasis on its connections with Differential Geometry. The text for this class is Differential Geometry, Lie Groups and Symmetric Spaces by Sigurdur Helgason (American Mathematical Society, 2001). Much of the course material is based on Chapter I (first half) and Chapter II of the text. The text however develops basic Riemannian Geometry, Complex Manifolds, as well as a detailed theory of Semisimple Lie Groups and Symmetric
History of Electric Light Bulb
The electric light bulb revolutionized the world. Many people tried to invent one, but Thomas Edison succeeded. This video is about how he did it.
