In this Language of Mathematics video the instructor continues his demonstration of the real number system and how it is broken down. He starts off by speaking of the number zero and the impact of the breakthrough of the 'discovery' of this number.
Ready to Learn? The Experiment (Teachers TV)
Ready to Learn? The Experiment is a major piece of education research designed to investigate the impact of factors such as diet, sleep, and exercise on children's readiness to learn. More than 78,000 children at 682 schools took part in March 2008 in what was the largest ever experiment of its kind.
Multiplication with Negative Numbers
This video starts with a note that the student should watch the video on absolute numbers. The meaning of multiplication is reviewed, it is repeated addtion. Using a number line they explain how positive and negative numbers impact the equation. 3 x 1 = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3, -1 x 3 = -1 + -1 + -3. They show it this way to show that a positive times a positive is always a positive and a negative times a positive will always be negative. By the commutative property then a positive times a negative is neg

Risk, Exposure and Health
We all require food, air, and water to survive — which are contaminated to some extent by man-made pollutants. Two studies, one in a rural western mining town and another in a dense urban population, reveal how these exposures impact health, and what can be done to reduce the risks.
Workshop 7: Design, Construction, and Technology
MIT Professor Mitchel Resnick guides this workshop exploring technology as an aid for learning. He discusses the impact of technology on learning when students design and construct tools to support their own inquiries. Teachers demonstrate technology in their classrooms and provide a sneak peek at Resnick’s newest learning tool — the cricket.

HIV and AIDS
Studying individuals with natural resistance to HIV has led to insights into the infection process and may produce new treatments or a vaccine. This session explores recent developments in the study of HIV and AIDS, the future global impact of the current infection levels, and the ethical issues surrounding current research and treatments.
Workshop 8: Understanding Energy
Energy lights our homes, fuels our transportation systems, and much more, but affordable energy is in limited supply. In this session, look at the global impact of these limits and see how being smart about using energy will become more important in our daily lives.

Healthy School Meals and Educational Outcomes
This is a research report published by the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) that examines the impact of introducing healthy school meals on educational outcomes, as measured through Key Stage 2 test scores, within a single Local Authority. Claims are made that, following the implementation of the Jamie Oliver 'Feed Me Better' campaign in 2004, improvements were noted for test scores in English and science, and levels of authorised absence were reduced.
Emerging Technologies for Learning
This is the first volume of a Becta (2006) review of emerging technologies in education. It contains five articles by different authors, each outlining current and possible future trends in technology that are likely to have some impact on educational policy and practice in the relatively near future. There is considerable overlap in the content of the five articles, but five different emphases or perspectives are presented.

The End of the Frontier
This video is accompanied by text. "In 1890, the Census Bureau announced the end of the frontier, meaning there was no longer a discernible frontier line in the west, nor any large tracts of land yet unbroken by settlement. This news had a terrific psychological impact on many Americans. For the first time in history, America was without a frontier. The frontier was a part of American national identity. The ideal of an ever-pioneering spirit with eternally new wildernesses to conquer was the Ame
