Lugosi teaches math - polynomial approximations3
Béla Lugosi teaches continues teaching the advanced mathematical concept of polynomial approximations in this video. He uses an extended diagram to show the approximations in a slightly different way. He goes on to show you Taylor's Theorem with Remainder as another method. Lugosi's evident passion for mathematics makes this a fascinating video to watch for any lover of advanced mathematics.

Talks about her data analysis of radar and satellite data. Talks about the continuing exploration of all that is to be investigated in exploring the fine particle changes in the aurora. Run time 03:38.
Factoring of a square root in the denominator
This video shows how to factor a square root when a square root is in the denominator of a mathematical expression. This allows the student to factor out the answer in this scenario.
Autism Symptoms & Treatments : How Is Autism Treated?
Video is presented by Dr. David Hill. The treatment options for autism are limited, but one of the most common methods is applied behavioral analysis. In applied behavior analysis a behaviorist studies the child and sees what parts of the environment work and what doesn’t and then restructures the environment. The teach method is another method, which is a structured teaching approach involves a high degree of structure to teach and learn new
Many times in mathematics and in geometry in particular,
visualization of the concepts that are being taught is difficult for
students. This problem can be avoided with the use of a tool such as
Geometers Sketchpad. One of the best attributes of this program is that it is not a drill and practice program, but instead it requires the
students further develop their understanding of mathematical concepts. This lesson was designed to help make the concepts of translations, ro
Using Graphing Calculator To Create and Interpret Scatter Plots
This video shows how to plot data and use the linear regression
feature in TI83 and TI84 series graphing calculators to create a line
of best fit. Also, analysis using the generated line of best fit is
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. Running time 10:15
Cupcake Economics part 3
Part 3 continuing on the cup cake factory analysis using spreadsheet to show why prices decrease when utilization is low and prices increase when utilization is high.
Aztecs: Inside the hidden empire 3/5
The Pyramids are described and they explain what they were used for: they were open places used like theatres. There are images of sculptures representing Gods. The images of the Gods reflect their way of life. Blood was given to the Gods in rituals. The temple of warriors is described and what analysis of the place has shown. The most common sacrifice and ceremonies are refered to. There is a map showing how big the Empire grew. There is an explanation of how society was organised and of the re
Simple Analysis of Cost Per Job Saved from Stimulus
A simple analysis of cost per job saved from stimulus in this clip. The calculations to determine cost per job saved are shown on the screen as the narrator calculates with a calculator.
BBC Nature: Mega Tsunami - Evidence of Destruction
Scientists uncover evidence of disastrous damage to the coastline at Lituya Bay. Analysis of tree rings from the tree trim line show evidence of an impossibly high wave - a Mega Tsunami.
Cupcake Economics 2
This is Part 2 continuing on the cupcake factory business analysis. This part shows how to fill out the spreadsheet with the investment figures.
Following Children's Ideas in Mathematics
An unprecedented long-term study conducted by Rutgers University
followed the development of mathematical thinking in a randomly
selected group of students for 12 years - from 1st grade through high
school - with surprising results. In an overview of the study, we look
at some of the conditions that made their math achievement possible.
Using the day of the month, first- and second-graders investigate the
concepts of addition and subtraction as they share story problems that relate to the date.
Teams use everyday language and experiences to connect to the
mathematical language and symbolism for operations. NCTM standards: concepts of whole number operations, whole number computation, communication, connections.
First- and second-graders investigate number relationships and explore the concept of addition in a part-whole model using dominoes. They develop mathematical communication as they represent mathematical ideas with physical materials, words, diagrams, and symbols. NCTM standards: concepts of whole number operations, whole number computation, problem solving, communication.
Language and Speech: Broca's and Wernicke's Areas
The left hemisphere is dominant in this module on language and the brain. Relationships between specific brain areas and verbal processing are shown through the historic example of Dr. Paul Broca’s brain-injury patient. The patient’s preserved brain is subjected to CAT scan analysis, which shows correspondence between the damaged area and the patient’s documented d
The Law of Falling Bodies
With the conventional wisdom of the Aristotelian world view, almost everyone could see that heavy bodies fell faster than lighter ones. Then along cam Galileo. His genius deduced that the distance a body has fallen at any instant is proportional to the square of the time spent falling. From that, speed and acceleration follow with the help of a mathematical tool called a derivative.
