This video explains how to use point-slope form when writing a linear equation. Point-slope form can be written using one point and the slope or when given two points since we can calculate the slope from the two points. Once we have an equation in point-slope form, it can be rewritten in slope-intercept or standard form. (1:12)

SIN004 : The red fox in rural areas
SIN004 - The red fox in rural areas, is a seven page leaflet made available as a PDF file by Natural England. The leaflet briefly describes the biology, behaviour, social organisation, population statistics, parisites and disease of the fox, before dealing with possible problems and methods of control. References to other literature are given, as well as contacts to discuss control methods.

Real Angry Birds! Slow Motion Allen's Hummingbirds--Fights and Bites
These aren't your average sweet little birdies! Both male and female hummingbirds of some species are quite aggressive, territorial, and vigorously defend their food sources against intruders. While those long, sharp bills may look like formidable stabbing weapons, the birds' head, neck and body weight just don't pack enough strength or mass to do much damage, so fights typically involve only mild biting and poking with the bill, and grabbing with the feet as well - not even with enoug
Algemiene Fryske underrjocht kommisje (AFUK)
The Algemiene Fryske Underrjocht Kommisje (AFUK) (General Frisian Education Committee) website is full of useful information and contacts for those who want to learn Frisian or want to know how to use the Frisian language in different social contexts. The site can be accessed in Frisian, Dutch, and English in slightly different versions. The AFUK's main aim is to stimulate the use of Frisian by means of different projects, such as organising Frisian courses (mainly in Friesland) and publishing b

Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;
3.052 Nanomechanics of Materials and Biomaterials (MIT)
This course focuses on the latest scientific developments and discoveries in the field of nanomechanics, the study of forces and motion on extremely tiny (10-9 m) areas of synthetic and biological materials and structures. At this level, mechanical properties are intimately related to chemistry, physics, and quantum mechanics. Most lectures will consist of a theoretical component that will then be compared to recent experimental data (case studies) in the literature. The course begins with a ser
