If we want to solve for or describe a region in a coordinate plane, we can use linear inequalities. Linear inequalities give us a set of solutions as opposed to just one solution. This video clip explains how to solve linear inequalities using similar methods as in solving multi-step equations, except that there are extra rules when using multiplication and division. We graph linear inequalities by shading regions of number lines or coordinate planes. (6:20)
This clip provides an introduction to Spanish Vocabulary. The English words are shown alongside the Spanish words.

Thematic Poetry Videos
Overview: Youth literacy can be promoted by leveraging youth culture, such as rap/music videos. By merging sound and visual imagery with text, a poetry writing task can be transformed into a multi-media video assignment. English teachers with access to a computer lab equipped with video editing software (e.g. i-Movie) can carry this out with their classes. Alternatively, English and computer lab teachers can collaborate to have their students produce thematic poetry videos as the culminating act
Students examine images of galaxies and learn to recognize the various shapes used in the Hubble classification system. They can follow the site independently, using a worksheet that prompts them to answer questions in the text, then take a java "quiz" that requires them to place various galaxies in their correct positions on the Hubble "tuning fork." There is some supplemental material about galaxies and Hubble's observations.

This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the fire process, an interacting particle system consisting of a rectangular lattice of "trees". At each discrete time unit, each tree is either on green, on fire, or burnt. A tree on fire at a given time can catch neighboring trees on fire at the next time unit. The probabilities of fire spread can be varied.
