Mary Pope Osborne Interview: The Magic Tree House
In this interview Mary Pope-Osborne says she stresses when she writes she writes things over and over. In the Magic Tree House she writes about what she thinks kids are going to enjoy and then what she wants to learn about. The girl, Anne, in her books is her, only this girl is more brave, and the boy, Jack, is more like her. The fun she has in life is with her two dogs. Her husband, Will, is also involved, he makes suggestions. She writes because she knows the kids like the books. In her proces

Illuminati: The Worlds Most Powerful Secret Societies PT.3
It has been known for centuries that a secret society called the Illuminati was formed by a Prussian King in 1742. It appears that a family tree if you will was created down through the centuries, through only the powerful elite.
How to Solve Geometry Proofs
Excellent video from Jimmy Chang, who has a master's degree in math and has been a math teacher at St. Pete College for more than eight years. Mr. Chang explains what geometry proofs are and their importance.
Perimeter and Area Rap
In this teacher-created video, the teacher sings a rap song which defines and explains how to compute perimeter and area. ( :59)
Mrs. Burk Perimeter Rap
Mrs. Burks sings a rap song explaining how to find the perimeter. Catchy tune for students to remember (Running Time 0:59).
A slide show type of video accompanied by music. The song lists the different attributes of shapes (contrasts a rectangle with a square).
POINTS, LINES & PLANES
This short powerpoint presentation on Point, Lines, and Planes will surely help the students taking up Geometry class in high school or college to really understand the basic of Geometry. The important part of the video actually begins at min 1:30. Before that is some kind of advertising clip.
Proving Lines are Parallel
If two lines are cut by a transversal and corresponding angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. If two lines are cut by a transversal and alternate interior angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. If two lines are cut by a transversal and same-side interior angles are supplementary, then the lines are parallel. Students are then asked to determine which lines are parallel in given figures using information about the angles in the figures.
Definition of Parallel Lines
Students learn the definitions of parallel lines, skew lines, parallel planes, and transversals, and are asked to identify these types of lines/planes in given figures. Students are also asked to identify alternate interior angles, same-side interior angles, and corresponding angles. Always, sometimes, and never questions are included in this lesson. (00:49)
Intersecting Lines and the Angles Associated With Them
The instructor uses a white board to discuss what intersecting lines are. Supplementary, vertical, and congruent angles are defined. The small picture may force the viewer to open the video to 'full screen'. (02:15)
A line segment is part of a line, has fixed endpoints, and contains all of the points between the two endpoints. One of the most common building blocks of Geometry, line segments form the sides of polygons and appear in countless ways. Therefore, it is crucial to understand how to define and correctly label line segments. (01:18)
