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.

Cold War: The Wall Comes Down - part 1/5
Part 1 of 5 about the Berlin Wall and its impact and significance during the Cold War.
This video offers an exploration of planet Mars, from early time up to Vicking Landing. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Solar System. The planet is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. It is also referred to as the "Red Planet" because of its reddish appearance, due to iron oxide prevalent on its surface. Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the volcanoes, valleys, deserts and polar ic
Rotation, Seasons, and the Surface of Planet Mars
Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Solar System. The planet is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. It is also referred to as the "Red Planet" because of its reddish appearance as seen from Earth.
A terrestrial planet, Mars has a thin atmosphere and surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the volcanoes, valleys, deserts and polar ice caps of Earth. It is the site of Olympus Mons, the highest known mountain in the solar system, and of Val
The Real Number Set - Part 2

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
