Language of Mathematics II (52): Creating a Large Radicals Problem, Part 1
It is night and the instructor is outside in a parking garage where he uses a concrete wall for demonstating how to create a large radicals problem. The viewer can see his passion for the 'language' of math.
Battle of Fallen Timbers and the Treaty of Greenville
This video discusses some of the key facts of the Battle of Fallen Timbers and some of the concessions made in the treaty of Greenville. This is a good video review, but students need to have a list of names of those involved and a map of the battle site. This video moves rapidly, but adds insights what the treaty was about and the effect had on the Indians. A great debate starter for does the means justify the ends.
The Arts in Every Classroom: Expanding the Role of the Arts Specialist
Three arts teachers work with colleagues around their schools, using collaborative techniques that go beyond the traditional work of arts specialists. Kathy DeJean is a dance artist at Lusher Alternative Elementary School in New Orleans; Mary Perkerson is the visual art teacher at Harmony Leland Elementary School in Mableton, Georgia; and Amanda Newberry is the theatre specialist at Lusher.

Volcanoes provide clues about what is going on inside Earth. Animations illustrate volcanic processes and how plate boundaries are related to volcanism. The program also surveys the various types of eruptions, craters, cones and vents, lava domes, magma, and volcanic rock. The 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens serves as one example.
Basic Mathematics : How to Teach Division With Whole Numbers
Teaching division with whole numbers is an easy concept if one is familiar with multiplication tables, as the tables work opposite of each other. View examples of how multiplication and division work with one another with insight from a math teacher in this video on mathematics.

Animal Life Cycles
There are life processes that are so much a part of our experience that it’s easy to take them for granted. Reproduction is one of these processes. It seems quite simple: life cycles result in offspring that resemble their parents. The life cycle patterns of different life forms vary, but the outcome is always the same – the continuity of life is ensured from generation t
Chemical Changes and Conservation of Matter
Where does the weight go when we “lose weight”? What happens when iron rusts? Why are exploding stars able to turn other elements into gold when the alchemists w
Many Planets, One Earth
The early Earth was a much different planet than the one we know today. Ancient rocks provide evidence of the emergence of oxygen in the atmosphere and of a frozen Snowball Earth. Scientists Paul Hoffman and Andrew Knoll look at these clues to help explain the rise of complex animal life.
Workshop 7: Children's Ways of Knowing
With Dr. Herbert Ginsburg. Children know a good deal of informal mathematics before they enter school. Clinical interviews help teachers understand what children know. In this session, you will see young children’s natural mathematical inclinations and watch as they construct their ideas. Observe Professor Ginsburg helping teachers of young children rethink t
Acceleration Lab Experiment
In this slow motion video for IPS Schools by Clayborn a ball is released on an inclined plane and accelerates due to the force of gravity. At the bottom of the first inclined plane to the beginning of the second inclined plane the ball stops its positive acceleration by nearly maintaining its horizontal speed. On the second ramp the ball accelerates backwards down the slope, or loses speed to a point where it momentarily comes to rest. Therefore this video demonstrates POSITIVE ACCELERATION, ZER
Language Processing in the Brain
Demonstrates learning as an active process and shows the PET scan as an effective method of measuring brain function.
Infant Speech Sound Discrimination
Demonstrates how infants can discriminate between subtle sound differences; focuses largely on infant speech development.
The Stuff of Genius: Copier
Before the invention of the modern copier, companies across the world
depended on time-consuming -- and, often, incorrect -- duplication
methods. This 2:20 video explains how the copier was invented and also how the inventor worked hard to develop this invention.
