Aristotle Part 4

Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in

Western philosophy. He was the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality and aesthetics, logic and science, politics and metaphysics. Aristotle's views on the physical sciences profoundly shaped medieval scholarship, and their influence extended well into the Renaissance, although they were ultimately replaced by modern physics. In the biological sciences, some of his observations were only

Adding Negative Numbers Using a Number Line

The video starts with a review of general subtraction. Using the commutative property for addition they show how a + b = b + a, then they move into subtraction. When you subtract and you get a negative, you need to add more to the negative number to get the same answer. For example 7 - 2 = 9, so 7+ (-2) = 5 and 7 - 2 = 5, it is discussed what is the same in the last two equations. Adding a -2 is the same as subtracting 2. Other problems are then done. Video is good quality and good for all

Chasing Tornadoes

From an outsider's perspective, storm chasing might appear to involve hours and hours of boredom, accentuated by a few moments of unimaginable excitement — or terror — depending on one's love or fear of tornadoes. But to tornado researchers, the effort and expense they expend in search of a single tornado-producing storm reflect the importance of these events in terms of their impact on lives and property. This video segment adapted from NOVA follows some of the scientists who study these vi

How your Sense of Smell and Taste are Related

If you can't smell, you probably can't taste very well either. They are closely related senses. This short video explains why. Run time 0:52 seconds.

Podcast Recording Tips

When recording in Audacity wait at least 2-3 seconds before you start speaking. A second tip is to keep the microphone away from your lips so that it doesn't sound like you are spitting.

Black Holes..........Monsters in Space

Video explains what a Black Hole is. It is the ultimate unknown. There is no way to find out what is in there. Black Holes themselves cannot be observed directly, but they do possess gravity. Astronomers have found that when material is packed tightly around a black hole it makes a ringing sound. Astronomers believe that black holes have no volume but are infinitely dense. Video shows how a star is pulled into the black hole. There i

Commutative Property of Addition

Students learn the following addition properties: the commutative property of addition, which states that a + b = b + a. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.

Addition Properties

This video discusses the properties of addition. The video startes with solving a simple addition problem using a number line, they then change the order of the problem. This shows the commutative property for addition. Then they show commutative using negative numbers. Then other examples are shown. Then they show problems with parenthesis, which tells the student to do this part first. This shows the associative property for addition. More examples are given. Video is good quality and good for

Properties of Multiplication

This video indicates it is for pre-algebra, however this video would be good for anyone who is review mulitiplication and its properties. This video begins with showing the Commutative Property for Multiplication, which states when two numbers are switched they will have the same product. An example is given with three numbers, this is done from left to right (order of operations). Then they switch what is mulitiplied first the product is the same, this is the Associative Property for Mulitiplic

Commutative Property of Addition

The Distributive Property

Students learn the distributive property, which states that a(b + c) = ab + ac. In other words, the number or variable that is outside the set of parentheses "distributes" through the parentheses, multiplying by each of the numbers inside. Note that a negative sign outside a set of parentheses can be thought of as a negative 1, so a negative 1 distributes through the parentheses. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of concept.

Using the Distributive Property

The distributive property is one of the most important and fundamental parts of algebra. In this video the math teacher shows how to break down the equation in to the simplier components. Shows negative numbers also. This is a great beginning video. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of concept.

Properties of Division (part 2)

In this video learn how to solve division problems using the

divisive identity property, zero property, and distributive property. Distributive properties states to divide the number outside the parentheses by each number in the parentheses, then add the dividends together. Examples are shown.
