Expansion and Contraction
Using balloons to illustrate the process, Eureka! shows how, when matter gets hot, its molecules go faster and the solid, liquid, or gas expands. Conversely, when matter gets cold, its molecules go slower, and the solid, liquid, or gas contracts. Eureka was a series of short cartoons on physics that ran on public television in the 1980's.  The video explains the concept in simple and well illustrated way.  Good for students of any elementary school level.

The History of Mathematics - BBC
Mathematics is the Empress of the Sciences. Without her, there would be no physics, nor chemistry, nor cosmology. Any field of study depending on statistics, geometry, or any kind of calculation would simply cease to be. And then, there are the practical applications: without math there would be no architecture. No commerce. No accurate maps, or time-keeping: therefore no navigation, nor aviation, nor astronomy.

Centripetal Force: the Roller Coaster
What can we learn about physics from an amusement park ride? This videosegment, produced for Teachers' Domain, uses roller coaster footage to demonstrate that what really keeps people pinned to their seats as a roller coaster hurtles through a loop isn't just the seat belts, it's centripetal force. To reinforce this important scientific principle,a physics teacher successfully swings a cup of water around his head without spilling a drop. Run time 04:40.
