Measurement: The Foundation of Chemistry
The distinction between accuracy and precision and its importance in commerce and science are explained. Numerous examples of real world use of chemical measurement are shown. Various equipment is used to demonstrate specific levels of precision.
Modeling the Unseen
Models are used to explain phenomena that are beyond the realm of ordinary perception. Computer technology and special effects place students in a front-row seat to observe many processes, even those that are too dangerous or impractical to experience directly.

Vector Calculus - What is Green's Theorem?
This lecture, by Dr. Chris Tisdell, discusses Green's theorem in the plane. Green's theorem not only gives a relationship between double integrals and line integrals, but it also gives a relationship between "curl" and "circulation".
In addition, Gauss' divergence theorem in the plane is also discussed, which gives the relationship between divergence and flux.
Plenty of examples are presented.

Chemical Changes and Conservation of Matter
Where does the weight go when we “lose weight”? What happens when iron rusts? Why are exploding stars able to turn other elements into gold when the alchemists w
Will world population outrun food resources? The "Green Revolution" of the 20th century multiplied crop yields, in part through increasing inputs of pesticides and fertilizers. How can farmers reduce their use of agricultural chemicals and still produce enough food?
Species are being lost at a rapid rate in rainforests and coral reefs. Yet many species still have not been discovered. Tropical scientists struggle to keep ahead of the bulldozers as they work to understand this complex ecosystem. And an ocean biologist predicts the death of life and the "rise of slime" in the sea. How can we protect the biodiversity of these vulnerable
