George Orwell's 1984 - 1
This video is about the novel, 1984 by George Orwell. It is a
novel written in 1948 depicting the future as the author
imagined it could be if the Soviet social trend went too
far. The video shows footage of the movie while discussing the novel.
David Copperfield: The 60-Second Review
The narrator in this video reviews David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, distilled into a single-minute chunk. He is driving a car while reviewing the novel.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Reading - Chapter 7
In this video Chapter 7 from Charlie and Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl, is read aloud.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Chapter 4
Chapter 4 is read from the book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Linear Parent Graph and Translations and Dilations
In this video, two equations are graphed and the graphs are then compared to see if they represent a translation, dilation, or reflection. Examples and explanations of translations and dilations are shown.
Pilot Math : Introduction to Math Transformations
This short animation, from the Pilot Math 7 series, introduces the concept of Transformations when some of the Pilot gang find a thrill with transforming robots and teach their robot Zinc to do some transformation tricks.
Transformations - Translation, Reflection, Dilation, and Rotation
Models of translations, reflections, dilations and rotations. Teacher explains clearly and slowly. Shows alternate methods for performing the operations. Contains 4 different sections, so the video can be stopped after each section for practice. The background is a bit distracting.
This video describes how a transformation changes the size, shape, or position of a figure and creates a new figure. A geometry transformation is either rigid or non-rigid; another word for a rigid transformation is "isometry." An isometry, such as a rotation, translation, or reflection, does not change the size or shape of the figure. A dilation is not an isometry since it either shrinks or enlarges a figure. (2:44)
How to Draw and Identify Transformations
How to Draw and Identify Transformations - TenMarks teaches you how to draw and identify transformations. The instructor uses computer software for demonstration. (03:39)
"Hip Hop Alphabet" song
"Hip Hop Alphabet" sings about the alphabet in a different, fun way. Some of the lyrics include--"Get ready, get set, hop to the alphabet". The letters of the alphabet are displayed on screen while the singer says each one. The song is repeated several times. This would be a good teaching resource for young students. (1:36)
Solving Compound Inequalities
This lesson demonstrates how to solve a compound inequality then shows how to graph the inequality. The instructor goes through how to do this step by step on a white board. Then, he shows the solution set on a number line.
Solving Inequalities Using Multiplication
This video explains how inequalities follow different rules than equations when dealing with multiplication. Solving inequalities using multiplication involves watching for negative numbers. When we multiply both sides by a negative number we must change the direction of the inequality sign. This happens when using multiplicative inverses to simplify the way we would when solving multi-step equations. (2:11)
Solving Quadratic Inequalities
This video shows the basic procedure and one full example of how to solve quadratic inequalities. The instructor goes through and explains each step as it is written on the white board.
Quadratic Formula Song
Learn the quadratic formula and how to use it in problems. This catchy video comes from the Algebra Upgrade online course at www.learningupgrade.com. It is one of those tunes that could get stuck in your head (which could be a good thing when you are trying to remember a formula!).
This instructor in this video, Sal Khan, uses a calculator to perform a quadratic regression. Mr. Khan uses computer software (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. The viewer may want to open the video to 'full screen' as the instructor fits a lot of information on a dark screen.
Solving Inequalities in One Variable
This video shows examples of inequalities with one variable and the instructor goes through the steps necessary to solve the inequalities. While he does this, he explains some of the important rules necessary for correctly solving inequalities. He also identifies some common mistakes students make when solving inequalities.
Solving Inequalities in One Variable: Part 1 of 2
The instructor uses an electronic sketchpad to demonstrate how to solve linear inequalities in one variable. This video is part 1 of 2 and several problems are solved and plotted on a number line.
Graphing Inequalities on a Number Line
Instructor uses a white board to demonstrate solving inequalities in one variable and graphing the solution on a number line. Examples include one-step, two-step, and multi-step linear inequalities.
