Dress Design Using Geometric Patterns
This 2:44 video shows Amy Williams explaining the design of certain dresses, created out of paper. These patterns consist of triangles, and the folds are simliar to the style of origami. This is an interview, but there are plenty of examples. Would make a good geometry class project using paper designs.
Korea’s Middle Power Foreign Policy in the 21st Century
This lecture starts by briefly defining the middle power and its role in the regional system. The security environment that the Korean peninsula is facing is later introduced including the North Korean nuclear weapons problem, the rise of China, and human security issues. Korea's foreign policy postures both at bilateral and multilateral levels is also provided. The lecture concludes with a brief introduction of Korea's alliance strategy, policy toward North Korea, polic
Copernicus and Galileo
Copernicus was ridiculed by his peers and Galileo was found guilty of heresy by the Catholic church for their views that the Sun (not the Earth) was the center of the Solar System. The video has a fascinating account of Galileo's observations of Venus. Run time 05:06.
The Evacuation of Saigon
A video by Meet Me at the Corner. This video has a student interviewing Mr. Vern Jumper, a retired Air Officer who was on duty during the Evacuation of Saigon. The video takes place in San Diego, CA while touring the U.S.S. Midway Museum. The video contains some actual photographs from the time period. A teacher could also use this video to teach students how to conduct an interview. (4:42)
Golgi apparatus (animated)
This short animation shows the dynamics of the golgi apparatus, Proteins being processed for export are shuttled along the microtubule.
Collaborative design of structures using intelligent agents
The construction industry has a long tradition of collaborative working between the members of a construction project team. At the design stage, this has traditionally been based on physical meetings between representatives of the principal design disciplines. To aid these meetings, the information and communications technologies that are currently available have been utilised. These have yielded some success but are hampered by the problems posed by the use of heterogeneous software tools and t
Video interview with a paleontologist who tells why trilobites are her favorite fossils. Grades 5-12. Includes closed captioning. 2:26 min.
This professionally-made video takes you on a field trip to Nevada to study Trilobite fossils near Las Vegas. The video features sketches and actual Trilobite fossils with on camera comments from paleo experts. The video also discusses some other work by the Paleo Society since its founding in April of 2007. (03:08)
Dinosaur Burrow: Oldest Evidence Found In Australia
Paleontologist Anthony Martin shows evidence of oldest fossil evidence of tetrapods in Australia. Explains that the burrows were probably used to survive polar winters. Grades 5-12. 1:52 min.
T. Rex Blood?
In this video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, learn how scientists are hoping to better understand the biology of dinosaurs by studying the insides of fossil bones. Hear about the accidental discovery of dinosaur soft tissue by paleontologist Dr. Mary Schweitzer, and how this tissue enables scientists to learn more about dinosaur physiology and pathology. For example, soft tissue could provide information about toxins that led to dinosaur deaths. Closed Captioning is included. Run time 04:
What killed off the dinosaurs? Over the years, experts have suggested everything from global climate change to a spate of massive volcanic eruptions to the most widely accepted culprit: an asteroid that unleashed global devastation. But as correspondent Chad Cohen reports in this video, some scientists believe the giant reptiles might have been taken down by something almost too tiny to see. (15:05)
This is a short movie about a lonely mammoth wandering around in a blizzard. This animation was by a David Otzen from 3D College Denmark. The beautiful images are set to music and although there is no narration, it could be a nice introduction to a lesson about the Mammoth or about extinction. (01:45)
Tribute to Mammoths - Flurry of Frozen Fury
This episode of Mammoth Journey - from BBC´s Walking with Beasts TV series - shows the incredible journey of the mighty Mammoth in an Ice age (European continent, 30.000 ago). They traveled every year to spend the summer in the grassland of north´s plains, and left it when the frozen fury of the ice age´s winter arrived. The images are set to music. No narration. (04:43)
Evolution Ep2: Great Transformations (2/6)
From the development of the four-limbed body, to the journey of animal life from water to land, to the emergence of humans, this video focuses on the important evolutionary changes that triggered Earth's incredible diversity. This documentary is suitable for high school grades. Run time 09:48.
The Eight Planets and the Sun
This presentation is a simple introduction to the eight planets and Sun of our solar system. The facts are given in rhyme and are easy to remember. (02:07)
An Integrated approach for 3D simulation of construction sequence
In order to eliminate design-related problems and to ease planning difficulties, a new integrated approach is required to manage and present design and construction information. This paper examines the feasibility of integrating design and construction scheduling information produced by 'industry standard' software. It describes the structure of a prototype which has been developed to generate a 3D simulation model for the cons
Pascal Lamy, Director General of the World Trade Organisation.
Pascal Lamy, Director-General of the World Trade Organisation presents a public lecture on: 'The Role of the Multilateral Trading System in the Recent Economic Crisis'. The lecture was chaired by Richard Lambert, Chancellor of the University of Warwick.
How to Predict the Wind from Isobars
Video is narrated by Melissa Schenk, a meteorologist. Predicting the wind is an aspect of weather prediction you'll want to master before becoming a meteorologist, learn how to predict the weather. In this video she discusses wind is important in forecasting temperature, isobars (which are a line of constant pressure), if isobars are close together or far apart, how these affect the wind, direction of wind and how these affect the temperature that is going to occur. This video includes closed ca
The Alphabet Song in Greek
In this video the alphabet is sung. The letter is shown and the word while the song is sung. Note: Some of the letters are not pronounced correctly in this video.
