Take a journey into an ear canal to see how the ear works to receive vibrations from sound. As the viewer travels into the ear canal, captions appear on the screen.
If you can't smell, you probably can't taste very well either. They are closely related functions. Receptor cells for taste and smell are located in the mouth and nose, respectively. As the receptor cells are stimulated, they send impulses from these organs to the brain's smelling and tasting centers, the cortices. For taste, impulses stimulated by the chemical compounds in food are sent to the gustatory cortex. For smells impulses stimulated by the chemical compounds in odors are sent to the ol

The instructor uses a sketchpad program to describe and show examples of Equilateral, Isosceles, and Scalene triangles. An example of each is modeled with the definition of each explained. Clear, step-by-step instruction.
This is an amusing spoof of 'Dancing With the Stars'. This Sesame Street video shows a dance competition that is supposed to involve triangles, but the contestants are a little confused. Other shapes such as a hexagon and a square are introduced, in addition to the triangle.
In this video, Mr. Khan draws a box and two intersecting lines that produce several triangles. Mr. Khan proves that the area of these diagonal-generated triangles of the rectangle are equal. He goes over the formula for finding the area of a triangle. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. The screen gets busy (and dark)--the viewer may want to open to 'full screen' to see everything. The sound is a little low. (04:35)
