Plant Adaptations from StudyJam
For plants to live and grow in certain environments, they must adapt to their surroundings to get their basic needs met and ward off predators. This animated video from StudyJam explains various plant adaptations.
Windbags - Cool Science Experiment
How many breaths does it take to inflate an 2 meter (8 ft) Windbag? 70 breaths, maybe? Why even try? With a simple science secret you can amaze your friends by blowing up a Windbag in one breath! If you don't believe it, try this amazing science activity! Windbags are so light and strong that even the smallest scientist can demonstrate the amazing properties of air!
The desert biome is characterized by low precipitation, a high rate of evaporation (seven to fifty times as much as precipitation), and a wide daily range in temperature. The dramatic temperature fluctuations are the result of low humidity, which allows up to 90 percent of solar radiation to penetrate the atmosphere and heat the ground during the day, then for this accumulated heat to be released back into the atmosphere at night. Precipitation in deserts, unlike other biomes, is highly irregula
Counting Change in First Grade
Practice with quarters and pennies, then quarters and nickels. Teaching script appears as a captions on the slides. The video is in lecture format while examples are provided on the screen. (1:30)
Ecosystem Dynamics and Tropical Forestry
Short introduction to research by the Ecosystem Dynamics Group at the Environmental Change Institute.
Calendar of letter-books of the city of London: F - 1337-1352
Calendars the letters of the City of London, arranged in approximate chronological order. Includes editorial introduction and indices.
Waves, Beaches and Coasts
This program shows the dynamic interaction of two geologic agents: rocky landmasses and the energy of the ocean. Aspects of waves — their types, parts, movement, and impact on the shore — are illustrated. The program also covers shoreline characteristics, currents, sea barriers, tides, and how the greenhouse effect could impact sea level and coastal lands.
Introduction to Cellular Respiration - Khan Academy
The instructor uses software (and several colors for clarification) to offer an introduction to cellular respiration, glycolysis, the Kreb's Cycle, and the electron transport chain. (14:19)
Ioannis Ioannou: are markets able to evaluate sustainable business models?
Assistant Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, Ioannis Ioannou, shares his key take-aways from the panel "Investing in a fairer future: the role of capital markets in creating a sustainable economy" at the Global Leadership Summit 2013.
"I Am an Animal" Song
This short, fun song emphasizes animals and the sounds that animals make. Several verses show different animals and their sounds. The song is tied together with a repeated chorus. The words to the song are displayed on the screen. Young learners will enjoy this cute video and it would certainly be helpful in building background knowledge (2:06).
h-BN inclusion in a β-Si3N4 grain
The micrograph shows h-BN inclusion (precipitate) in a β-Si3N4 grain (within a silicon nitride particulate-reinforced silicon carbide composite). The occurrence of BN inclusions results from the introduction of colloidal BN into the hot isostatic pressing process. They are formed from B2O3 present as a thin surface film on the BN particles in the barrier layer. B2O3 will be molten during the pressing process and will diffuse rapidly into the powder compact and react with Si3N4 to form BN. Such
21F.311 Introduction to French Culture (MIT)
Ce cours est une introduction à la culture et la société françaises depuis la Révolution, mais surtout à partir du Second Empire. Nous tacherons de cerner ce qui définit la singularité francaise dans une perspective historique. Nous commencerons avec la notion "d'exception francaise" et de ce qui la constitue depuis la Révolution (La République, L'Universalisme, La Laicité, etc.) Nous explorerons l'impact de l

Featuring Walter Block, Thomas DiLorenzo, Guido Hülsmann, Robert Murphy, Timothy Terrell, Mark Thornton, and Thomas E. Woods, Jr. Recorded at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, on 25 July 2014.
This course offers an introduction to the basic concepts of the quantum theory of solids.
This video teaches rules for reflections and rotations. Review of symmetry is provided in this clip.
This 12 minute video is about robots, and robots created with human personality, to make interactions with them easier. They adopt cute faces or realistic faces with human emotions and the video looks at how they might be used in the future. A good starting point for a debate on what the use of robots might be in the future.
This excellent PBS series, filled with historical re-enactments and narrated by David McCullough, starts with Napoleon receiving the crown of France. This documentary is suitable for high school students.
Before diving into ColdFusion and web-based applications, start with this introduction and see what lies behind this powerful language.
We will address the challenges of design information in designing interfaces and functional dynamics considering a content part of the collaboration of users whose commitment to the project reaches various levels. The use of a well-structured iconography and the availability of help, shortcuts and tutorials are some of the resources already exploited, however, there is still room for reflection on the use of visuals and sounds aimed at facilitating the navigability on such projects. Here are som
