Beluga Whales | Fact and Opinion
First, the narrator reads a non-fiction passage about Beluga whales. Then, the narrator pulls sentences from the story and asks if the sentences are fact or opinion. The narrator asks two general comprehension questions. The image is a still image only. Great for improving listening skills. (03:33)
18.769 Topics in Lie Theory: Tensor Categories (MIT)
This course will give a detailed introduction to the theory of tensor categories and review some of its connections to other subjects (with a focus on representation-theoretic applications). In particular, we will discuss categorifications of such notions from ring theory as: module, morphism of modules, Morita equivalence of rings, commutative ring, the center of a ring, the centralizer of a subring, the double centralizer property, graded ring, etc.

How to Prove Triangles are Similar
Students learn the following theorems related to similar
triangles. If an angle of one triangle is congruent to an angle of
another triangle, and the lengths of the sides that include each angle
are in proportion, then the triangles are similar (Side-Angle-Side
Similarity Theorem, or SAS Similarity Theorem). If the lengths of the
sides of two triangles are in proportion, then the triangles are
similar (Side-Side-Side Similarity Theorem, or SSS Similarity Theor

How to Divide Inequalities
How to Divide Inequalities. Part of the series: Math Fractions and Equations. When dividing inequalities, treat the equation like any other standard equation. Flip the inequality sign when dividing an inequality by a negative number with help from a math author and teacher.
Graphing Linear Inequalities in Two Variables
This video begins with a simple inequality, then explains how to graph the inequality. The instructor begins by showing how to graph the boundary line, then tells how to show the correct solution set on the graph by shading.
