Simplifying Rational Expressions
This video walk the learner through the steps to simplify rational expressions. Specific circumstances are discussed and several problems are modeled.
Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions
In this video, the instructor talks about adding and subtracting rational expressions. He first defines what rational expressions are and how they are different from equations. In general, the instructor states that the idea is to make the expression into a single fraction if possible. The instructor walks the viewer step by step through three different examples of adding and subtracting rational expressions.

Mr. Khan offers this video of the intuition (but not a proof) of the Squeeze Theorem. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors on a black screen) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. (07:37)
Calculus Limits: A Numerical Approach
In Calculus, the term limit is used to describe the value that a function approaches as the input of that function approaches a certain value. This video explains the two ways to demonstrate Calculus limits: a numerical approach or a graphical approach. In the numerical approach, we determine the point where the function is undefined and create a table of values to determine the value of the variable as it approaches that point. (1:45)
This video explains one-sided limits. A limit is the value that a function approaches as the input of that function approaches a certain value. In Calculus, sometimes functions behave differently depending on what side of the function that they are on. By definition, a one-sided limit is the behavior on only one side of the value where the function is undefined. (3:02)
Calculus Limits: A Graphical Approach
This video explains the graphical approach to determine a limit. There are two ways to determine a limit: a numerical approach or a graphical approach. In the graphical approach, we analyze the graph of the function to determine the points that each of the one-sided limits approach. (3:02)
Infinite Limits: Vertical Asymptotes
This video explains when a limit decreases or increases without bound near certain values for the independent variables, they are called infinite limits. In general, a fractional function will have an infinite limit if the limit of the denominator is zero and the limit of the numerator is not zero. The infinite limit can be either positive or negative and is determined by the sign of the quotient of the numerator and the denominator. (3:23)
Continuity of a Function
This video explains the three conditions that must be met in order for a function to be continuous at a certain point. The continuity of a function only exists if these three conditions are met. (0:55)
If functions are continuous at every point in their domain, they are called continuous functions. This video provides examples of continuous functions including power functions, exponential functions, and logarithmic functions. (2:58)

An episode of the series Biography on History Channel dedicated to Lord Byron and produced in 2004. 'George Gordon Byron, later Noel, 6th Baron Byron of Rochdale FRS (22 January 1788– 19 April 1824) was a British poet and a leading figure in Romanticism. Among Byron's best-known works are the brief poems 'She Walks in Beauty', 'When We Two Parted,' and 'So, We'll

British Democracy (pt. 1)
Former MP Benn gives a description of Democracy as it exists and describes efforts to take it away and to get it back. (While from a British point of view, it can easily be applied to American democracy.)
