Introduction to Factoring Trinomials - Yay Math
Removing common factors and using FOIL to reverse engineer trinomials to find the factors. White board in a class setting, some interaction, engaging, several examples of increasing complexity. The discussion is clear and understandable.

Basic Calculations in Mathematics : Calculating the Perimeter of a Circle
The perimeter of a circle is calculated by measuring the radius and multiplying it by 2 pi. Calculate the perimeter of a circle with a professional math tutor in this video on math skills. There are English captions at the bottom. (01:07)

This video explains how a central angle is an angle where the vertex is on the center of the circle and the endpoints are on the circle. The endpoints on the circle are also the endpoints for the angle's intercepted arc. The angle measure of the central angle is congruent to the measure of the intercepted arc which is an important fact when finding missing arcs or central angles. (2:12)
This video describes how inscribed angles are angles whose vertices are on a circle and that intersect an arc on the circle. The measure of an inscribed angle is half of the measure of the intercepted arc and half the measure of the central angle intersecting the same arc. Inscribed angles that intercept the same arc are congruent. (1:44)
Angles in Semicircles
If an angle is inscribed in a semicircle, it will be half the measure of a semicircle (180 degrees), therefore measuring 90 degrees. This video describes how angles in a semicircle can be used to find missing missing angles and lengths. Pythagorean's theorem can be used to find missing lengths (remember that the diameter is the hypotenuse). Also, the measure of an angle formed by a chord to a tangent is half the intercepted arc.

Pi Mathematical Pi Song (Full Version)
This Is The Full Version Of The Pi Pi Mathematical Pi Song! Written by Antoni Chan and Ken Ferrier. Note, this is not mine.
PI Song (Each and Every Time)
Video is a song about pi. It talks about who discovered it and what it measures.
Lose Yourself in the Digits - Song
This music video is to the tune of Eminem's "Lose Yourself" and teaches about the concept of Pi. Lyrics are not included on the screen but can be found at www.teachpi.org. The lyrics in the chorus are, "You better lose yourself in the digits of pi. It's a high but you got a thousand more to go. The numbers do not stop or drop into pattern, no. To memorize it would take most of a lifetime." (04:26)

A teacher narrates a slide show explaining what makes two figures congruent.
How to Teach Piano to Kids: How to Teach a Child to Play Do Re Mi on the Piano
Expert Village video. This lesson is taught by Hope Wells. Video teaches children to play three notes, which are the Do Re Mi notes. Placement of fingers is shown on the keys of the piano. Good quality video. Video would be good for any age student who is learning to play the piano.
This is a colorful School House Rock video on prepositions. The prepositions are used in phrases and illustrated accordingly. Prepositions never stand alone and give specific information. Some of the phrases are over the rainbow, with a friend, over the meadow, through the tree, etc. This is a fun teaching resource to introduce and/or reinforce prepositions in the classroom and/or at home. (3:01)
Words ending in "ight"
A poem illustrating "ight" words like might, light, tight... This video has 3 small British children reciting the poem and could be used as a tool for rhyming beginners. (1:30)
Martin Luther Sparks a Revolution
This three minute video explains the German monk's questioning of Catholic dogma that leads to the Protestant Reformation though his questioning of the values of the Catholic Church and its sale of indulgent behavior. A good biography.
Reformation Series #1- Martin Luther
This video looks at the life of Martin Luther. Video shows pictures and words are written on the screen.
Converting Pints to Gallons
A math teacher show how to convert pints to gallons. He explains to to divide by eight because there are eight pints in a gallon. Examples are shown on a whiteboard of how to convert pints to gallons and making a conversion chart.
Customary Units Of Capacity
This brief video is from The Math Party National Standards Program and features a rap song to help students remember U.S. units of capacity.
Real Life Comparisons of Customary Capacity
The video gives real-life comparisons and demonstrates common conversions of customary capacity (cups, pints, quarts, and gallons).
Cups, Pints, and Quarts
Students will be shown how cups, pints and quarts differ. The slides model how these measure compare in capacity. 2 cups=1 pint, 2 pints=1 quart, 4 cups=1 quart. User clicks through the slides.
King George-Cups, Pints, Gallons
The video begins like Star Wars and it provides a strategy that will help students remember liquid conversions. They may know how many cups are in a Pint, but they may have trouble identifying how many cups are in a Gallon. Use this strategy, draw it out and practice at home. This is a great teaching resource for elementary students and/or special education students (1:57)
Big G (King George) = Gallon
Four Queens = 4 Quarts in a Gallon
2 Prince & Princesses = 2 Pints
