The FOIL Method - Multiplying Binomials
Students learn to multiply two binomials together using the F.O.I.L. method: First, Outer, Inner, Last. For example, to simplify (2x + 3)(x -- 5), take the product of the First terms, which is 2x^2, plus the product of the Outer terms, which is --10x, plus the product of the Inner terms, which is +3x, plus the product of the last terms, which is --15. So the problem reads 2x^2 -- 10x + 3x -- 15. Finally, combine the like terms --10x + 3x, to get --7x, so the final answer is 2x^2 -- 7x -- 15.

Matrix Multiplication (Part 1) - Khan Academy
The instructor demonstrates how to multiply two 2 x 2 matrices. Mr. Khan uses a software program (emphasizing with different colors) to illustrate his points. The student or educator may want to open the video to 'full screen' as the instructor is using a black background and the writing is small. (13:40)
Matrix Multiplication (Part 2) - Khan Academy
The instructor uses an electronic chalkboard to demonstrate Matrix Multiplication. At the time of this posting from WatchKnow, this video was a Featured Video on YouTube. The instructor, Sal Khan, continues from Part 1 on multiplying matrices. The student or educator may want to open the video to 'full screen' as the instructor is using a black background and the writing is small. (14:37)
Solving Limits Algebraically
Explains how to solve limits using the methods of algebra. Also, the presentation notes instances where limits cannot be found algebraically. Animated graphics on white board. The explanation is clear and understandable.Provided by http://www.free-academy.com...
Calculus General Limit
This video offers a description of the general limit theory in Calculus. An explanation on when a limit exists is given. Several situations are discussed
If functions are continuous at every point in their domain, they are called continuous functions. This video provides examples of continuous functions including power functions, exponential functions, and logarithmic functions. (2:58)
Illustration of Fibonacci Sequence
Music video set to a Tool song. Uses images from the Hubble Telescope. Explains why the song is a good example of a Fibonacci sequence. Grades 10-12. 9:23 min.
In this video the vocabulary,prefixes, of the metric system are discussed. The prefix's meaning is discussed and applied to different numbers. The equivalents are written as fractions, decimals, and scientific notation. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
Units of Measurement pt 2/2
The purpose of this video is to help students review for the mathematics section of the Grades 5-7 Academic Achievement Tests. The topics covered by the project address critical objectives found in the tests, but more importantly, they address those items that are frequently missed by students.Carter is trapped in a locked basement room when he searches for a girl who keeps appearing and disappearing. Chris must answer units of measure questions to get the combination to free Carter.
Weight and Capacity

Francis Bacon "Of Studies - Purpose & manner" Recitation animation
Here is a virtual movie of the great Sir Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626) philosopher and statesman and a pioneer of modern scientific thought reciting his essay on his thoughts on the true value of reading "Of Studies - Purpose & manner". Bacon was a radical on the subjects of learning and education. Knowledge in his time was considered to be a static, timeless thing worked out in the isolated contemplation of classic texts (especially those of
