How Changes in Earth's Magnetic Field and Ionosphere Affect Us - Part 4
Part 4 in a discussion on How do changes in Earth's magnetic field and ionosphere affect us? Anya Strømme – EISCAT/SRI International. She’s working with very high power radar to study the aurora borealis which are better observed at higher latitudes. She’s studying particles coming into the atmosphere, heating it, generating currents—this is where our satellites fly…this impacts tv reception, GPS, cell phones in a much more dramatic way than we can imagine.

Human Anatomy - HIP
This is a computer-animated video (02:14) that describes how the function of hip bones and how they work. This video has English captions at the bottom of the screen. This may be good for big classrooms where sound may not travel well.
Proteins: Structure and Function Proteins are very important to living organisms and to industry. Proteins are part of the chemistry of life, and the program examines proteins — polymers built from only 20 basic amino acids. The arrangements of these long chains of amino acid are important to their functioning. The video also explores the history of the discovery of the structure and function of pr

Charming Snakes- Cobras in the Dark
Cobras are one of the most poisonous snakes in the world. Their most
distinctive feature is their hooded head which they raise to intimidate
prey as it spreading their hood makes them look larger.
Cobras usually eat rodents, eggs, and frogs; but they also eat other
snakes such as rat snakes. Their venom is a neurotoxin and when injected
into prey, it paralyses the animal by shutting down the function of the
nervous system, which ultimately leads to cardiac
Brain Chemicals & the ADHD Diagnosis

Wilson’s Fourteen Points
Seeking to rally Americans to the war effort in 1917, President Woodrow Wilson promised a “war to end all wars,” and pledged to “make the world safe for democracy.” Making the world safe for democracy seemed a noble and just pursuit to Americans who watched as Europeans and Russians struggled with increasingly limited freedoms and leaders who acted out of vengeance, creating economic turmoil.
President Wilson believed that the United States should serve as a moral compass to the r
Learn a Trick to Making Box and Whisker Plots in Excel
See how to create a Box Plot or Box & Whisker Statistics chart
using a Stacked Bar Chart and a Open-High-Low-Close Stock Chart. The video show how to use the QUARTILE function and how to link Chart Labels to cells. The demonstration is done using the software program and the data sometimes is a little difficult on the screen.
Fractals in the Body
Fractal patterns turn up everywhere in biology, from the irregular rhythm of the heart to basic eye function. The fractal nature of such physiological processes, which obey simple mathematical rules, offers hope of better diagnosis and treatment of problems as well as new insights into how such processes work.

Using a Function Machine to Create a Math Rule
The video appears dark because the instructor has a projector on in a darkened room. However, the information is demonstrated fairly well. The teacher shows how to use the function machine to find the unknown rule to a set of number pairs by investigating the pattern. (1:21)
Function Tables and Function Rules
Learn about function tables and how to use them to find rules and equations. The example uses a linear word problem and walks the viewer through setting up a table and generating the formula or rule.
The New Nation Unit 6
Following the War of Independence, Americans disagreed — often
passionately — about the form and function of the federal government. This unit explores how those conflicts played out as the new republic defined its identity in relation to other nations. (This unit includes a facilitator guide, video, and online text chapter.)
