How to Write a Limerick and Haiku Poem
This is an instructional video clip on how to write a limerick and haiku poem. The video features a narrator defining each type of poetry and composing one of each. Words appear on a black screen. (2:19)
How To Write Poetry
This video presents ideas for poetry. Allow your creativity to spin out a poem. This appears to be teacher-made video, with a narrator explaining several examples on the screen. (3:50)
How to Analyze a Poem
Analyzing a poem requires paying attention to the form, if applicable, the story line and how it changes, the language and the word choices. Dissect a piece of poetry, looking especially for change in the character or tone, with tips from a published author and English professor in this video on writing. David M. Harris has taught English at Vanderbilt University and elsewhere. He has published poetry, essays, short fiction and a novel, and he has worked in book and magazine publishing. For midd
Multiplying Fractions using Cross Cancellation
In this video they show to solve multiplication of fractions by cross canceling. They start with simple problems and do many different examples. Then they do addition of fractions with unlike denominators, they find the lowest common denominator, and apply this to solve the problem. Then they progress to a problem with four fractions. Then additional examples are done. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.
Direct Proportion Using Hooke's Law
This is a lesson excerpt. To see the whole video go to mindbites.com/lesson/918. This video explains direct proportionality. Professor Burger uses a real-world example of a spring and Hooke's Law using a slinky. Hooke's law states that the distance a spring stretches varies directly to the force applied. If force, f, is directly proportional to distance, d, then d~f or d=kf. This equation allows us to find the constant, k, of how much the spring stretches when force is applied. After
Multiplying 2-digit decimals by 2-digit decimals
In this video learn how to multiply decimals that are more than one digit. Step by step demonstration of how to multiply 2 digit by 2 digit decimals.
Solving Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing
Instructor uses a white board to demonstrate graphing systems of linear equations. Examples include being given two linear equations, finding the slope and y-intercept, and then graphing to determine the point of intersection. (4:49)
Systems Of Equations With Fractions - Using Substitution
In this video lesson, students learn to solve systems of linear equations that involve fractions. Students also learn to solve linear systems of equations by the method of their choice using the following rules: if one of the variables cancels out when the equations are added together, then use addition, and if a variable is already isolated in one of the equations, then use substitution.
Simplifying Rational Expressions
This video walk the learner through the steps to simplify rational expressions. Specific circumstances are discussed and several problems are modeled.
Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions
In this video, the instructor talks about adding and subtracting rational expressions. He first defines what rational expressions are and how they are different from equations. In general, the instructor states that the idea is to make the expression into a single fraction if possible. The instructor walks the viewer step by step through three different examples of adding and subtracting rational expressions.
Basic Algebra : How to Write an Algebraic Expression
Writing an algebraic expression in mathematics involves any combination of variables or letters and numbers. Understand the concept of algebra and its flexible expressions with insight from a math teacher in this video on mathematics.

Simplifying Rational Expressions
In this teacher created video, the teacher defines a rational expression. Then the teacher models the steps of simplifying the rational expression on a white board. ( 1:26)
This video clip explalins how a fraction that has a polynomial in the numerator and/or in the denominator is a rational function. An excluded value in the function is any value of the variable that would make the denominator equal to zero. To find the domain, list all the values of the variable that, when substituted, would result in a zero in the denominator. (1:37)
That's the Rule
Video is in song form and shows how to use variables in an equation and how to solve for the variables. Video also shows a table that was constructed to show how the variables related to each other.
