Applications of Linear Equations
This video clip describes how math is applied to the real world situations through word problems. The applications of linear equations are seen throughout all our math courses after Algebra. To understand applications of linear equations we need to have an understanding of slope, how to interpret a graph, and how to write an equation. In upper-level Algebra, we apply systems of linear equations to these problems as well. (1:45)
Learn English Through Song - Prepositional Phrases

An Introduction to Natural Gas
Until recently, most natural gas in Canada came from what are referred to as "conventional" sources -- with the gas trapped under relatively high pressure in relatively loose formations which allowed the gas to move freely to the wellhead for production.
In recent years, however, production of natural gas from conventional sources here in Canada has fallen, despite record levels of drilling and completion. With demand for natural gas continuing to grow, additional sources of natura
Natural Resource Depletion
Natural resource depletion is loosely defined as when resources are used up in an area. Non-renewable resources (things like oil and trees) will eventually be depleted while renewable resources (things like wind and sun) typically are not entirely depleted. (01:23)
Joseph Priestley and the Discovery of Oxygen
This 2:22 video reviews that history of what Priestley did to discovery oxygen and how he used mercury to experiment with.
Viewers learn that one of the chief ways in which heat energy moves is in the form of waves. This kind of heat transfer is called radiation. 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.
