How the Body Responds to Excercise
This video segment adapted from NOVA describes the effect of exercise on the body and defines one measure used to gauge aerobic fitness. VO2 max (maximal volume of oxygen uptake) is a measurement of how well the body gets and consumes the oxygen that muscles need in order to sustain activity. Learn how the entire cardiovascular system benefits from exercise and how the body's response to the demands of physical activity is a survival mechanism. Nice illustration of how the respiratory,circulator

Excerpted from NOVA: "Surviving AIDS," this video segment showcases the work of Drs. David Ho and Stephen O'Brien. By examining the "outliers" -- in this case, people like Steve Crohn, whose cells repeatedly resisted HIV infection -- Ho and his colleagues found a genetic mutation that prevents the HIV virus from entering the cell. This video segment includes animation of HIV entering a white blood cell through the CD-4 and CCR-5 receptors on the cell's surface. Some individuals have no CCR-5 gen

Students learn to round a decimal to a given place using the following steps. First, find the digit in the rounding position. Next, look at the digit to the right of the rounding position. If the digit to right of the rounding position is greater than or equal to five, round up. Then change all digits to the right of the rounding place to zero. Finally, we can drop off any zeros to the right of the decimal as long as they are also to the rig
