Footage from NOVA: "Mystery of the Senses: Hearing." Closed captioning included. Run time 01:40.
Solving Rational Equations with Unlike Denominators
This video clip explains how to solve rational equations with unlike denominators. The first step is to factor the denominators and look for a common denominator. Next, we multiply both sides of the equation by the common denominator to clear the fractions. Finally, we solve for the variable using an appropriate technique. (1:35)

In Algebra, sometimes we are given points and asked to write an equation to describe them. This video clip describes the methods we can use for writing an equation to describe a table. For example, if the table describes a line, we use the y-intercept and calculate the slope to write the equation. To fully understand this concept, students should know how to plot points and how to interpret graphs. (1:15)
